Damaged Alloy Wheels – A Solution.
The video here is footage of the wheels being secured to a vehicle in one of automotive facilities in the West Midlands.
It shows the operators fitting a bespoke wheel protection cassette to the loose fitted wheel nuts. This is prior to engaging the multi-spindle DC tooling power-head. This secures all nuts as a synchronised process.
The company identified a major issue with the cost of replacing or repairing damage to alloy wheels. This was being claimed by their dealer networks.
CAS Assembly Tooling and Services were approached to provide a solution to ensure that no damage was created at any point during the fitting and securing process. They believed that the operators were not being sufficiently careful when engaging the power-head with the wheels and causing damage to the alloy wheels. Once the wheel is secured to the vehicle the cassette is removed and used on the next wheel.
The experienced CAS engineers developed this design concept, produced a 3D CAD model, manufactured prototypes and proved the solution was viable.
The device acts as a slave adapter that fits between the wheel and the power tool and incorporates a shield to prevent the sockets coming into contact with the surfaces of the wheels.
We received a purchase order to deliver a production solution and it has been in place and operated for around four years now, saving the company tens of thousands of pounds every year.
Another solution we delivered to our customer which started life on the whiteboard of Jason Kane! Another one of CAS Tooling Solutions.

What tooling brand should I use?
What tooling brand should I use? –
At CAS we assess what tools companies are currently using and why they are using them. Often, we need to understand why the current brand of tooling is being used. So, most of the time we can advise alternatives depending on what industry we are dealing with. We deal with any industry from automotive, to aerospace to manufacturing to construction and beyond. We have the whole of the UK covered so let us know when we can come to your premises for an onsite visit.
