Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19833879C1] The invention relates to a clamping device for fixing a wheel rim of a vehicle wheel to the shaft of a balancing machine. Said device comprises a locating flange (2) which is to be fixed on the shaft of the balancing machine and has a locating face (6) for the wheel rim; a clamping flange (12) which is positioned on a shaft journal and can be clamped against the locating flange (2); centering bolts (20) which are concentrically arranged on the clamping flange (12) around its circumference and at equal distances from each other and at their ends facing the locating flange (2) each have a centering cone (22) designed to engage fixing and centering holes in the wheel rim of the vehicle wheel; and pivots (24) which axially protrude outwards from the centering cone (22). Said device is characterized in that in the locating face (6) of the locating flange (2) a circular groove (8) is arranged whose width corresponds to the diameter of the pivots (24) and whose mean radius corresponds to the radial distance of the centering bolts (20) to the axis of rotation of the shaft of the balancing machine.
