What is an alloy wheel diamond cutting machine?

An alloy wheel diamond cutting machine is a specialist lathe that is used to repair Diamond Cut alloy wheels. The diamond cutting process involves removing a thin layer of metal from the wheel's surface using a precision cutting tool with diamond-tipped blades, such as the HBC System Wheel Restore WR-DCM3. 

The alloy wheel diamond cutting machine scans the profile (shape) of the alloy wheel face and then proceeds to cut the surface of the alloy face to remove any damage and restore the finish back to it's original condition.

Settings can be easily adjusted to ensure the original OEM cut finish is replicated during the repair process.


WR-DCM3 Class leading

A number of unique features set the Wheel Restore lathe apart from others in the market. The simple, intuitive user interface means it is very simple to use resulting in faster training.

 Higher precision scanning leads to quicker repairs and less material removed. Repair reports allow for full details of the repair to be provided to the customer with a QR code. Simple maintenance with option for low cost warranty renewal year on year. 

How it Works

Wheel Restore technology is driven by cutting-edge software, designed in Denmark by expert engineers. Using a 12” touchscreen panel display, the user is provided with simple graphics taking them through each step of the alloy wheel repair process. 

Our Quick Setting feature allows for easy changes to the cutting depth and speed to replicate the finishes found on different alloy wheels.
