BalTec France reference project of suitcase wheels

Suitcase Rollers

We had to find a riveting solution for a manufacturer of suitcase rollers to rivet the suitcase wheels.

The assembly of rollers is in general not so easy because there are a lot of tolerances and they should always have the same torque. On the other hand they need to be rugged for airplane/luggage transport.

Due to the very good sensibility of the RNE unit 231 with HPP-25. We were able to solve the problem adjusting the parameters more precisely with the help of the process control.
