Bosch enhances tyre changer range to suit all workshops

Bosch has enhanced its tyre equipment range to provide technicians with a safe, versatile and importantly time-saving operation, with models that suit every type of workshop.

Recognising that tyre-related service is a strong business opportunity that workshops can’t afford to ignore, Bosch’s new generation of tyre changing equipment is designed to be versatile and increase productivity without compromising safety.

At the top of the range are the TCE 4470 and 4475, both pneumatic titling column tyre changers for passenger cars, especially designed for tyre specialists and high volume workshops. They are equipped with a clamping capacity of 28-inch externally and 32-inch internally.

The value-driven TCE 4400 and 4405 have also been introduced, which offer a pneumatic tilt back column tyre changer to lower and medium-volume workshops. They are equipped with a 20-inch (external clamping) round turntable, pneumatic locking of the tool and the pneumatic bead breaker.

Bosch’s G-Frame concept technology is now at the heart of the tyre changer range. This unique and advanced feature increases the rigidity of the machine, reducing the flow of internal forces, avoiding tyre and rim damage, a must with the RFT and UHP tyres fitted to expensive alloys, while also improving the time it takes to change the tyre. This makes the new machines ideal for high-volume, specialist or dedicated tyre workshops.

These new additions to the range complement the existing TCE 4430 and the TCE 4435 tilt-back tyre changers, which are equipped with a 22-inch (external clamping) round turntable and available with all of the same options as the TCE 4470/4475 series.

Features and benefits of the TCE 4470 and TCE 4475 include:

At the top of the range is the TCE 4470 and 4475, both pneumatic titling column tyre changers for passenger cars, especially designed for tyre specialists and high volume workshops. They are equipped with a 28-inch (external clamping) turntable, a pneumatic positioning of the mounting head and a four-position adjustable bead breaker. Extreme rigidity of the structure and the use of the G-frame concept make them the market benchmark for robust and solid performance.

G-Frame concept – increases the rigidity of the machine, shortening the flow of the forces inside the machine, making it as rigid as possible

New jaw plastic protectors – saves time when the technician works with steel and alloy rims

Inflating system integrated in the jaws (TCE 4475) – faster bead seating of the tyre on the rim

Four-position adjustable bead breaker – the technician can easily regulate the bead breaker system based on their preferences

Speed motor driven by electronic control – possibility to work always having the best mix of power and speed available. All models available in single and three phase versions

Pneumatic positioning of the mounting head – the user can control and position the mounting head by pressing and releasing a button

Equipped with the new helper system TCE 330 – reduces the effort of the operator during the mounting-demounting process

Ergo Control bead breaker (option) – allows the technician to execute the operation of tyre-beading always in an ergonomic working position, reducing the time with less effort while always being in a safe position

TLL 130 (option) – automatic demount head has a redefined profile that allows it to perfectly follow the rim profile allowing perfect bead extraction

Features and benefits of the TCE 4400 and TCE 4405 include:

The value-driven TCE 4400 and 4405 have also been introduced, which offer a pneumatic tilt back column tyre changer to lower and medium-volume workshops. They are equipped with a 20-inch (external clamping) round turntable, pneumatic locking of the tool and an improved pneumatic bead breaker which is up to 40% faster acting.

G-Frame concept – increases the rigidity of the machine, shortening the flow of the forces inside the machine, making it as rigid as possible

Plastic demount head protection with integrated holders – holders for tools, valves and much more

Inflating system integrated in the jaws (TCE 4405) – faster bead seating of the tyre on the rim

Equipped with the new helper system TCE 330 – reduces the effort of the operator during the mounting-demounting process

Adjustable bucket holder for lubricant – all types of commercial bucket holders fit

Bead breaker pad shape – designed in order to avoid any scratch on the rim

Throw-in’ bead lever holder – easy and fast to reach

Inflating system controlled by gun equipped with scale manometer bar/psi – no external inflating system is required

Bosch quality workshops can rely on

Covered under a four year warranty on TCE 4430/4435 & TCE 4470/4475 models, Bosch’s tyre changer range has been subjected to extreme testing and development, with multiple machines being put through several lifecycles to prove their reliability of robustness. Every critical component has been tested to provide at least five and a half years of constant peak season use, this is the equivalent of a car having a one million mile lifespan.
