4 Casing preparation

Assemble casing
• Place upper part on lower part (observe marking).
• Bolt the parts together with the 4 T pieces and 2 middle    Marking
  crosses (M 6 x 10).

      After assembly, carefully secure the casing against
      toppling over; this could cause severe injury.

                                                              T piece

Open casing for wheel assembly
• Remove one of the lower front cover sheets by loosening
  the bolts in the frame and in the spacer plate.

         For easy installation of the inductive sensor
         (option) it is recommended that the cover sheet on
         the drive side is removed.

• When assembling a 4 part wheel: Also remove the
  second cover sheet, the supporting strut in the middle
  and the purge sector (if fitted).

5 Assembly of the wheel framework

Install radial walls
                                                                            Radial walls
       When installing the radial walls an imbalance occurs
       at the hub. Therefore the radial walls may turn by
       themselves, causing injury. Prevent this with suitable
       barriers (e.g. lock bars or the like)!

• Fasten the radial walls one after another to the hub with                 Lock bars
  the fitting bolts M12 h8 and the corresponding hexagon
• Tighten the screws with a torque of 87 Nm.
• When all radial walls are installed, test for axial accuracy;
  if necessary, readjust individual radial walls.

                                                                            Fitting bolt
                                                                            M12 h8

                                                                            Radial wall

Install rim sheets
• On the end face of each radial wall fasten two rim sheets                 Rim sheet
   (on top of each other) with the hexagon bolts M 6 x 40
   and the washers through the slotted holes.

6 Assembly of the storage mass

       The storage mass consists of thin aluminium foil
       and therefore can easily be damaged. Avoid impact,
       pressure, shock and excessive force in general!

Storage mass order
The storage mass is composed of 4 or 8 segments which
in turn consist of one or several rings. The individual compo-
nents must be installed in the same position as they were            Number of the
manufactured. For this reason they are numbered.                     adjacent segment
• Segment numbers must be in the correct order circum-
    ferentially. The numbers at the side indicate the number         Segment number
    of the adjacent segment.
• If there are several rings: Equal segment numbers must
    be radially adjacent.                                            Number of the
                                                                     adjacent segment
       If the individual components of storage mass are
       installed in the wrong position, this can cause
       insufficient axial and radial accuracy. As a result, the
       wheel may be out of balance and the proper function
       of seals is no longer ensured.

We would recommend that the insides of the rim sheets and
radial walls are numbered with a pen; this makes it easy to          Segment number
correctly assign the individual segments.                            on the inside of the rim

                                                                     Holes for screws
                                                                     ST 6.3 x 19

Insert segments

       During insertion of the storage mass an imbalance
       of the wheel occurs. Therefore the radial walls may
       turn by themselves, causing injury. Prevent this with
       suitable barriers (e.g. lock bars or the like)!

• Push the outer ring of the first segment into the wheel
  framework until it contacts the rear cover strips. Provi-
  sionally fasten it with self drilling screws ST 6.3 x 19
  through the holes in the rim sheet provided for this
  purpose.                                                           Screws
  When inserting storage mass, always press the rim                  ST 6.3 x 19
  sheets or outer storage elements (outer rings) outwards
  as far as possible in order to create a maximum of
  clearance between the radial walls and the storage

                                                                  Art.Nr. 4 206 945-en-00 / Page 6

• Afterwards insert the opposite segment.                                         Insertion
                                                                                  of opposite
       Before turning the wheel from one segment to the
       next secure it against turning backwards on its own
       (e.g. with 2 rope winches). Only afterwards remove
       the safety barriers. Any individuals not directly
       involved must leave the danger area.
       After turning the wheel, replace the safety barriers.

• Insert the remaining storage elements in the same way                           Filling
  until the outer ring is complete.                                               the outer ring
• Continue working in a similar manner until the wheel is

       Insert segments flush with the cover strips by
       carefully striking onto the hardwood board.

• When assembling a multi layer wheel:
  During the assembly, temporarily secure inner segments
  against falling out with screws M 6 x 10 and washers.

                                                                                  M 6 x 10

Install front cover strips
• Make sure that the entire storage mass is properly
   installed and aligned.
• Fasten the front cover strips to the radial walls with
   screws M 6 x 10, tightening the screws only slightly.                          Fasten front
                                                                                  cover strips with

7 Completion of the wheel

                                                                   4   7
Clamp wheel
• Take the self drilling screws ST 6.3 x 19 out of the rim
  sheets.                                                      5           1
• One by one, evenly tighten the clamping bolts (M 16) in
  the order shown in the diagram.

          To achieve uniform clamping of the wheel, tighten
          the clamping bolts evenly in several cycles. Never
                                                               2           6
          fully tighten a clamping bolt in one attempt!

• After tightening all clamping bolts the slotted holes
  should be largely used.
                                                                   8   3
• Fully tighten the screws of the front cover strips.
• After clamping check the wheel for out of balance.
  (In a properly clamped wheel the weight is evenly                            Clamping bolt
  distributed; therefore the wheel stands still in any
  position of rotation.) If necessary, re clamp.                               Slotted hole

Fasten rim sheets
• After clamping the wheel, fully screw the hexagon bolts
  M6 x 40 into the radial walls, thus pre clamping the
  storage mass at the radial wall by ca. 5 mm.
• This way a durable connection between radial walls, rim                      Hexagon bolt
  sheets and storage mass is ensured.                                          M6 x 40

Install hub covers                                                             Outside:
• Fasten the half washers to the hub with round headed                         self drilling screws
   bolts M 5 x 10.                                                             ST 4.2 x 13
• For fastening the periphery of the half washers, drill
   holes ∅ 3.3 mm into the cover strips and fasten with
   self drilling screws ST 4.2 x 13.                                           Inside:
                                                                               round headed bolts
                                                                               M5 x 10

Check wheel assembly
• Check if all screws are tight.
• Check for axial and radial accuracy.
• Check for out of balance.

8 Remaining works

       If an inductive sensor (optional) is used, it is
       important to install and adjust it before fitting the
