planteurJD_retouchée

Soucy Plastiques presents a brand new closing wheel which offers the same efficiency as a traditionnal one while being more durable, more flexible and fully customizable thanks to its UHMW plastic construction making Soucy HD closing wheel the most cost-effective choice on the market.

Main Features:


  • Unbreakable.
  • Lower material build-up.
  • Lighter: UHMW is 7 times lighter than steel.
  • Stronger: UHMW is 15 times stronger than steel.
  • The wheel is resistant to the harshest impact.
  • Simpler: Manufactured using one step direct compression molding. This yields a complete wheel assembly with wheel and bearing.
  • Bearing is easy to change: the bearing is press fitted into the wheel and can be changed in a matter of minutes.
  • Fully customizable.
  • 2 parts only unlike 17 parts for a typical wheel.

 

Closing Wheel Comparison:


WHEEL DESCRIPTION

SOUCY HD CLOSING WHEEL

The closing wheel made by Soucy Plastiques is manufactured using a direct compression molding process. This one step process insures uniform quality.

NYLON CLOSING WHEEL

The nylon closing wheel is traditionally composed of the following elements: a male nylon section, a female nylon section, a rubber tire and 6 to 12 bolts and nuts.

TIRE DESCRIPTION

The typical closing wheel uses an airless tire. Overtime, as the tire wears and the rubber ages, it becomes weaker and thus more prone to dismounting. The image on the left shows the damage done over time to a nylon impact wheel. 

RUBBER COMPOUND

The Soucy HD closing wheel was designed around a proprietary rubber compound. The compound gives the wheel the same flexibility as a nylon impact wheel so it allows mud shedding while still being more solid than a hollow tire. 

MORE DURABLE

  

 

 

 

Soucy HD Closing Wheel: 0.9 inch

   Competitor: 0.3 inch

 

OTHER BENEFITS


  • Longer life: UHMW is the most resistant material to abrasion.
  • Less material build up due to uniform surface and low friction coefficient.
  • Molecularly bonded tire: the rubber tire is held to the wheel by molecular bonding created during the molding process.
  • Stronger: higher impact resistance means they will not break. Upon strong impact, it will deform and resume its original shape.
  • Fully customizable: the process allows to customize any parameter of the wheel.
  • No catastrophic failure: with a full rubber tire molecularly bonded to the wheel, the only failure mode is age and wear.
