From initial design to the finished chassis and wheels assembly, 3M provides automotive solutions for OEMs and Tiers, improve assembly efficiency and reduce costs before they are ever applied. 3M provides structural adhesives and wheel weights that can be easily configured and delivered for use in automated systems with few or no extra process steps required. Check them out here.
Flexible and easy to use, 3M™ Structural Adhesives can be configured and applied in automated systems at the Tier or OEM level. They provide flexible working times and are ideal for quick, efficient application using automated mixing and dispensing equipment – usually with no additional process steps needed.
3M works closely with leading dispensing equipment manufacturers to ensure that our adhesive liquids help you optimize application efficiencies, arrive at scalable solutions, and push the boundaries of chassis and wheels automation
Composite-based, non-lead and very flexible, 3M™ Wheel Weight materials meet and exceed OEM performance standards and integrate easily into high-speed tire balancing processes. Level-wound rolls can be cut on demand, and 3M works with equipment suppliers to deliver semi-automated and fully automated wheel weight application solutions. Our wheel weight materials help reduce cycle times, balancer rejects and residual imbalance in wheel assembly. They may also reduce stocking costs related to parts and inventory.
