Semi-Automatic vs. Fully Automatic Tyre Changer: What is the difference between an automatic and a manual tyre changer? In general, tyre changers fall into four main categories, manual, semi-automatic, fully automatic and super-automatic (also known as robotic). We will focus on the two most popular from the SICE range, semi-automatic and fully automatic.
Semi-Automatic Tyre Changing Machine: A semi-automatic tyre changer mounting head sits on a hex bar which is held in place by a hinge at the top of the rear column. The rim distance is set by a screw in the rear column that will adjust to the correct wheel diameter. The mounting head is then pushed down on the hex bar into position by hand and locked into place with a lever. These machines are often called swing arm tyre changers.
Fully Automatic Tyre Changing Machine: With a fully automatic tyre changer, the setup of the mounting head is slightly different. The whole rear column operates on a hydraulic piston moving the rear column backwards and out the way of the table. Once the mounting head is moved into position, it can be locked into place with the push of a button, rather than manual force. These machines are often called tilt arm tyre changers.

Benefits of an Automatic Tyre Changer
- Improves Efficiency
With less wasted time on manual error and quicker tyre change, the automatic tyre changer is a more cost-effective option.
- Reduces Wasted Time
As there is no manual labour involved, the operator can quickly and easily set the machine, with a fully automatic ‘tilt-back’ tower.
- Removes Human Error
When using a fully automated tyre changer, there is no chance for human error as the tyre is robotically managed.
- Easy to use
The easy to use tyre changing machine doesn’t require any additional upskilling for engineers and can be explained easily.
- More Space Effective
The SICE tyre changer has a smaller operating footprint than other outdated machines. These compact machines only require enough distance from a wall to accommodate the slider shaft in its furthest set point, making it ideal for any workshop or mobile vehicle.
All SICE tyre changing machines are programmed with advanced Italian software. With over half a century of experience in the automotive market, SICE has developed the best tyre changers which offer a great choice of functionality across the range, to suit any wheel size tyre. Everard offers an extensive range of cutting edge tyre equipment, including service, sales, parts and repairs for all SICE wheel balancers and tyre changers.
