How Do The Professionals Diamond Cut A Wheel For Refurbishment?

by Herts Wheels Specialists in Alloy Wheel Refurbishment
Although the Diamond Cutting process is much similar to the powder coating process yet the only difference is that Diamond Cutting involved machine cut finish to the wheel’s front face. 

To speak in some details, the wheels are fully refurbished for the Powder Coating process while the tyre is kept off. The professionals take care of the wheels and even separate the tyres by stripping and refitting them. As a result, the wheels are re-balanced with the help of weights while re-balancing. At the same time, the professional wheels repairers fit the tyres in the inside of the rim so that the wheels’ appearance is not spoiled. 

Applying Powder Coat Lacquer

When it comes to diamond cutting the wheel for refurbishment, then the professionals use to carry out more than touch up by using a lathe. While carrying out Diamond Cut for wheel refurbishment, the repairers blast the wheels gently using hands and remove the pre-existing lacquer and paint layers. In this way, a smooth metal surface is obtained so that the next step on coating preparation is immediately started. In case, the wheels are in poor conditions, then they are stripped with the help of chemicals before blasting.

Then, the wheels are prepared and fully dressed to treat the damages prevailing on the faces and rim edges. 

Removing The Tyres, Weights & Valves

After that, the repairer gently heats the wheels to treat them for removing any presence of air from the alloy. Next, they apply a first stage powder coat finish and cured for a particular time period. They might apply a second coating at this very stage based on the chosen finish. As the wheels are cured, they are cooled. After the wheels are completely cooled, they are introduced to the modern CNC lathes and set ready for Diamond Cut. 

While they keep going with the process, they abide by the essential points to diamond cut the wheels for refurbishment. In the first place, were the wheels cut before, then the professionals can re-cut it just a finite number of times. As the technique’s nature, the metal is removed from the front face. Even the corrosion and damage level is removed. In case, there is an embossed wording on the wheel than in all possibility, it will be lost when the metal is removed. 

Shot Blasting - Further Cleaning Of The Wheel

After being introduced to the lathe, the professionals apply a clear coat lacquer and then return to the oven to further cure the wheels. 

Diamond cutting is applied to the wheels' lip and full-face combining it with the base coat paint and the application produces some spectacular finish.  

Diamond cutting is the wheel fixing process to a CNC lathe for re-cutting the wheel.  Wherever corrosion has been severe, the diamond cut process helps in skimming an awesome fine wheel surface layer. In the process, the scuffs, dents, marks, and pits are all levelled. The professionals can apply the method for finite times prior to its impact on the wheel structure's integrity. Normally, the wheels will have applied a clear lacquer coat once it had been cut. Even the wheels will be cured suitably at the oven to conclude with the chosen finish.
