System Capabilities

With the MU231 you’ll achieve high uptime (more than 95%) with minimum maintenance cost. Unique shuttle-conveyor system and patented L-chain allows for short cycle times, e.g. 26 sec for a typical 6Jx16” wheel (MU231XL: 28 sec) with digital image intensifier. And automatic inspection with AI software (optional) gives you reliable and objective inspection decisions with a minimal pseudo reject rate.

Supports a wide range of wheel sizes:

4J x 12‘‘ to 12J x 20‘‘ wheels (maximum diameter: 560 mm) of a maximum width of 350 mm and up to 25 kg.

MU231 XL is available for wheels of up to 12J x 24’’(maximum diameter: 650 mm) of a maximum width 400 mm and up to 50 kg.

Individual imaging chain options are available:
