SEMA Show, Day Four: CEMB USA has two new tire changers
CEMB USA/BL-Systems Inc. introduced two tire changers at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.
The SM955 is a tilt back tire changer with a two-speed motor. A leverless tool enables the machine to service standard as well as low profile and UHP tires, according to Bob Gibson, special projects manager.
Adjusting the tool to leverless mode allows the machine to operate on UHP super-low profile and run-flat tires. In standard mode, the machine operates by a traditional mounting head on soft shoulder high profile tires and light truck tires. The feature is called “Dual Fit” system.
The 955 model also has a “smart” bead breaker, which gives more control when breaking the bead, according to Gibson. The tire changer requires a 220-volt power supply.
The Matic750 leverless tire changer is a center post dual bead breaker that can accommodate up to 34-inch size tires. The 750 has a double arm/disk air operated bead breaker system that breaks both beads at once, according to Gibson.
The 750 model also features the company’s Dual Fit system for servicing UHP, run-flat and standard tires on a single machine.
