Vlukon is the No.1 manufacturer of high-quality metal rims & wheels. We make your work-life easier.
Because we made our production facility semi-automated and flexible we can also manufacture small batches of wheels and achieve short deliver times, which come Just in Time when you need it.
Vlukon prides itself in its ability to realize maximum value for our customers by developing rims based on the needs of the end user. Our experts re-engineer products to reach highest reliability with competitive price.
Since 1969, Vlukon has been producing metal rims and wheels for well-known European manufacturers of agricultural machinery and industrial applications.
The factory is a continuation of the "Machine and Devices factory NEVA".
The combination of a flexible and semi-automated production line and the focus on developing rims that meet the wishes of the end user means that Vlukon delivers product solutions that meet the requirements:
Improving end-user efficiency
Short JIT delivery times and the possibility to order small batches.
Saving quality and reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
Vlukon BV has a production capacity of 500,000 rims per year and is therefore the Dutch market leader.
In the case of tyres, the dimensions are generally expressed in mm. The more classic dimensions are indicated in inches. Both dimensions are laid down in the guidelines of the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation (ETRTO).
When dimensioning a rim, the first digits indicate the width of the rim bed, the last digits indicate the rim diameter in inches. The capital letter after the first digits indicates the shape of the rim horn. The character between the letter and the last digits indicates the type of rim, i. e. x for deep bed rim (1-piece, welded), or - for flatbed rim (2-piece, bolt).
All Vlukon rims are designed according to the dimensions of ETRTO to meet the highest safety requirements.
In addition to the dimensions, there is an indication of the load-bearing capacity on the tyre. This is indicated by the Load Index (LI) and the Speed Index (SI) on radially constructed tyres. The LI shows the maximum load capacity of the tyre at 1.6 bar and at the speed indicated by the SI. The load-bearing capacity and maximum speed of the tyre are also affected by the stiffness of the tyre to be indicated by the value Ply Rating (PR) with diagonally constructed tyres. The higher the number, the stiffer the tyre and the greater its load capacity.
