Diamond cut wheel refurbishment
Diamond Cutting is a premium service that offers the finest finish for your Alloy Wheels. The precision cut applied to the rims removes only what is required. The process involves cleaning your alloys wheels using a specialist jet machine which removes all dirt, tar, and grit. Once clean, the surface of the wheel is precision cut on a lathe to leave a high cut shiny finish. The wheel is then completed by coating the rim with a scratch proof lacquer. At this stage the alloys are carefully quality checked by our technicians to ensure it meets our high standards of finish. The tyres are then refitted, inflated to the correct pressure and re balanced.
The diamond cut wheel repair process
The Diamond cut wheel refurbishment process - we carry out in our refurbishment centre uses the latest state of the art machinery, all located on site, ensuring we can offer not only a quality service but a speedy turnaround too.
Once your diamond cut wheels arrive at our depot (you can drop them off, or we can collect and deliver) the tyres are removed using a specialist machine. Your tyres are marked for identification and stored on our racks. Your alloys will also be marked with a matching ID number.
Preparation - Your diamond cut alloys are prepared in a specialist machine which cleans and keys the alloy. Using this machine is quicker than more traditional methods and produces a better surface result. Your alloy is then de-greased.
Cutting – The wheel is placed into the lathe for precision cutting, this pin points the exact locations of the damage. Once the data has gone through the machine, the Diamond Cutting process starts by slowly and gradually coming closer and closer to the alloy, cutting off an incredibly thin layer of the metal. The machine spins the alloy at very high speeds with a rotary cylinder that holds the alloy in place. On the end of the machine, an incredibly precise sharp blade is located which has an electric mechanism beneath it for the machine to slide in and out smoothly, assuring the alloy is not damaged by the high speed cutting of the blade.
Lacquering and Into the Oven - The wheel then moves into our state of the art oven, which is a pressure controlled environment closed off from the rest of the refurbishment centre. Specially ventilated, the spray oven is used to apply dual layers of lacquer immediately after cutting, to protect your alloy wheels against wear and tear.
Cooled and Checked - The alloys take about 20-30 minutes to cool, and then they are carefully inspected by a technician to ensure the finish is perfect.
QC - All alloy wheels pass through a thorough quality control check to ensure they have met our minimum standards before replacing your tyres and balancing the wheels.
