3M™ Mechanical Replacement Weight TN4014, is an adhesive-backed mechanical replacement for clip-on weights used on the wheel flange to balance tires by multiple OEMs and Tier balancers. 3M Wheel Weights along with automated equipment from Esys Automation, allow for precision tire balancing and a smoother ride.
One product replaces multiple sizes of clip-on weights to reduce inventory and overall system costs
Easier, More Cost Effective and Improved Balancing of Wheels
3M™ Mechanical Replacement Weight TN4014 is a breakthrough in conventional thinking about how to balance wheels. This wheel weight material comes on a level-wound roll, which is cut-to-weight for each installation. The ability to cut on demand the exact weight required enables better balance and a smoother ride for the end-user. Additionally, this cut-on-demand wheel balancing solution eliminates the need to inventory individual part numbers, saving costs and eliminating the confusion of stocking dozens of sizes of weights. One product replaces multiple sizes of clip-on weights to reduce inventory and overall system costs, and eliminates the chance of selecting the wrong weight from the bin. 3M™ Mechanical Replacement Weight TN4014 measures 14 mm x 7 mm and features 3M™ Automotive Attachment Tape technology for durable and dependable attachment.
Helps improve the speed, quality and cost of OEM high-speed tire balancing processes
Installation of Wheel Weights is Quick and Simple
Lead-free 3M™ Wheel Weights, combined with Esys Automation's AutoW8t System, represent a leap forward in tire assembly and wheel balancing, dramatically improving the speed, quality and cost of OEM high-speed tire balancing processes. Esys Automation's AutoW8t System is designed to use level-wound rolls of 3M Wheel Weights in high-speed, high-volume environments with exacting specifications. The weights are attached to the wheel using 3M™ Wheel Weight Attachment Tape for dependable, long-term performance. This product is ideal for automated and semi-automated processing in OEM assembly plants.
3M Science Does Its Part to Eliminate a Source of Lead Contamination
Our wheel weights are made from a non-lead composite material. According to the EPA, approximately 1.6 million pounds of lead wheel weights are lost in the United States when they fall off during normal driving conditions. These weights can enter our environment in a variety of ways, including being washed into storm sewers or gathered during street cleaning and disposed of in landfills. A growing number of jurisdictions are introducing and passing legislation that bans the use of lead wheel weights. Our lead-free, composite material replaces environmentally harmful lead wheel weights while improving performance. In addition to environmental benefits, our wheel weights also resist the corrosion that is common with lead weights, which enhances overall tire appearance.
