Title (EN) TIRE MOUNTING AND DISMOUNTING METHOD AND APPARATUS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE MONTAGE ET DE DEMONTAGE DE PNEUS
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus and methods are described for mounting and dismounting tires. Apparatus typically comprises a pressing assembly (240) positionable relative to a fixed wheel rim (100) such that the pressing assembly (240) controls force distribution across selected portions of a tire causing a tire bead to be eased onto the wheel rim (100) . The apparatus typically includes an axis of rotation (241) perpendicular to the wheel rim axis (218) and wherein the axis of rotation (241) is positionable in a plane that includes the wheel rim axis (218) . The wheel rim (100) can be fixed to a base assembly (200) and handles (244; 510) allow positioning and transmittal of force to the pressing assembly (240) . A bead breaking assembly for deflating an inflated tire may be provided. Methods of operating these and other such apparatus are described.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil et des procédés de montage et de démontage de pneus. L'appareil comprend généralement un ensemble presse (240) positionnable relativement à une jante (100) maintenue de manière fixe, de sorte que l'ensemble presse (240) contrôle la répartition des forces sur des parties sélectionnées d'un pneu amenant le talon à être soulagé sur la jante (100). L'appareil comprend généralement un axe de rotation (241) perpendiculaire à l'axe de jante (218) et l'axe de rotation (241) est positionnable dans un plan qui comprend l'axe de jante (218). La jante (100) peut être maintenue fixe sur un ensemble base (200) et des poignées (244; 510) permettent le positionnement et la transmission d'une force sur l'ensemble presse (240). Un ensemble de rupture de talon permettant de dégonfler un pneu gonflé peut être prévu. L'invention concerne également des procédés d'utilisation desdits appareils et d'autres appareils semblables.
