Innovation - Steel clip-on weights

Tue, 05/06/2014 - 12:36 -- admin

Trax has developed an advanced steel weight clip-on design that incorporates the CAM-BACK™ design features as found in the popular series 200 series zinc universal weight for steel wheels.

There is global interest in using steel as a material for balance weights as some Original Equipment companies prefer steel over zinc for ecological and recycling reasons.

Japanese OE use only steel (or iron) as a material for balance weights and USA OE also uses steel.

Incorporates the TRAX CAM-BACK™ solution for maximum safety and retention.

TRAX-LOK® is an advanced method of attaching a clip to a weight body. Developed by Trax, this solution enables a high speed automated assembly process ensuring consistent weight body and clip attachment.

 

Features

  • Top cam - SAFETY. Prevents the weight from falling away from the rim
  • Bottom cam - RETENTION. Forces the weight body away from the rim, opening the clip gap & increasing retention.
  • EASY TO FIT - the rounded bottom edge allows the weight to slide easliy on fitting.
  • ACCURACY - the clip gap is more accurate than a die-cast weight as it is a one-piece clip construction
