WARREN, Mich. — Bosch has announced the latest innovation to its wheel service line, the TCE 4550 High Performance Semi-Automatic Tire Changer. The TCE 4550 is a 30-inch semi-automatic lever-less high-performance tire changer that assures fast, effortless and simple tire changing, the company says.
Two laser pointers on the TCE 4550 simplify the setting of the rim diameter and guarantee the perfect positioning of the lever-less tool during demounting. The robust center-post clamping with the innovative Bosch Smart-Lock allows technicians quick, safe and secure clamping for a wide range of applications.
To further simplify the mounting process, two dedicated tool and helper arms are easily and intuitively operated by the control panel along with the unique lever-less tooling system double bead breaker disks that allow for unhindered tire mounting and demounting.
The TCE 4550’s ergonomic control panel is intuitively arranged to yield ultimate efficiency during the tire changing process while motor inverters regulate movements to enhance precision and power. Once the mounting process is complete, the smart following arm automatically resets to the home position.
Equipped with a pedal controlled 2-speed rotation, the Bosch TCE 4550 has a large clamping capacity of 30-inch diameter and 16-inch width. The integrated wheel lift ensures safe lifting of wheels up to 176 pounds as well as protection of heavy high-performance wheel and the safety of the operator.
The TCE 4550 will be available for order in North America in early January 2017 through Bosch distribution partners. For more information on Bosch tire changers and other wheel service equipment, visit www.BoschWheelService
