press release

Sicam develops and produces tire changing systems and wheel balancers for workshop requirements. Tire service systems by Sicam are known to be reliable, safe and easy to handle while offering a good price-performance-ratio. Moreover, Sicam also offers wheel alignment systems and AC service units.

Current product highlights for the Automechanika
With the new tire changing system Falco Evo 622, Sicam introduces a new series of especially robust devices for the use on passenger cars. The easy operational concept and a new clamping system make precise and gentle working possible. The development of the tilting back pole and the highly rigid G-frame was based on the computer-assisted finite element method. This makes them extremely rigid and dimensionally stable, and the mounting head of the Falco Eve 622 is thus always held exactly in position to also work on UHP and RFT tires.

The new 4 position adjustable bead breaker and a revised clamping turntable increase the speed by up to 40 percent. And also the tire inflation device saves 25 per cent of time.

Even smaller details, such as the easy-to-find tray for the tire tool, and a universally adjustable holder for lubricants have been improved compared with the previous generation. The speed of the clamping turntable is precisely controllable with a pedal. Especially worth mentioning is the 1ph/230V version with motor inverter drive system that makes a continuous speed control and thus an extremely precise positioning possible. This is an important feature before the background of an increasing prevalence of tire pressure control systems. Moreover, the Falco Evo 628 by Sicam offers a clamping capacity of up to 28". The Sicam warranty program "Get4Get" warrants up to 4 years for the new products.

Tire service specialist since 1975
The Sicam company was founded in 1975 in the small town of Correggio in the Emilia-Romagna region and from the very beginning specialized in tire service devices for the vehicle workshops and tire dealers as well as fast fitters. The first tire changing system for passenger cars that Sicam developed and produced entered the market in 1977 and was followed in 1982 by a solution that also allowed the changing of tires on commercial vehicles. Since 1985, Sicam has also been producing wheel balancers. In 2007, Sicam was integrated in the Bosch Automotive Aftermarket Business Unit Automotive Service Solutions.
