Tire changers are machines used to help technicians disassemble and assemble tires with automobile wheels. After removing the wheel assembly and the car tire, the tire changer has all the necessary components to remove and replace the wheel tire. Different tire changers allow technicians to replace tires on cars, motorcycles and heavy trucks. The new tire and wheel technology has improved individual tire changers to be able to change a low profile tire or a flat tire.
The assembly/disassembly mechanism consists of the duck head, the swing arm, and the vertical slide. The duck head is at the lower end of the vertical slide. The duck head has a unique shape, like a conical spout, to then fit around the edge of a wheel. It can be metal or plastic. The duck head mounts and disassembles the tire of the wheel. The oscillating arm moves to the left and the right. The purpose of the swinging arm is to move the duck’s head near or far from the edge. The last component of the assembly/disassembly mechanism is the vertical slide. The vertical slide moves up and down so that the duck’s head can fit on the edges of different wheel sizes. The vertical slide has a spring and a locking handle on the swing arm to position the duck head and maintain a stable position around the edge.
Valve system including air inflation meter, air hose, and air pressure purge valve
The air pressure system in a tire changer provides the air to inflate tires mounted on wheels. The air pressure system consists of 4 components: air hose, air inflation meter, inflation pedal, and manual pressure purge valve. The air hose is located near the top of the tire changer and allows compressed air to travel to the tire. A specialized end is used in the air hose to hold firmly on the stems of the valves of the wheels. The air inflation meter shows the air pressure inside the tire when the air hose is connected to the valve stem. The air inflation meter shows the pressure in pounds per square inch (psi). Just below the air hose on the side of the tire changer is the inflation pedal that allows inflation of the tire. When the inflation pedal is raised, a burst of air is released from the valves next to each rim bracket to the lower rim bead to assist inflation. The manual purge valve is located next to the air hose and the air inflation meter. The manual bleed valve allows manual release of tire air pressure.
