Due to the design and constant failure of the 1, 2, 3 Ton cannon box wheel on a very regular basis, High power innovations investigated the causes of the failure and found the following:
- Sealing arrangement(non existent)
- Pipe that keeps the bearing inline bends, thus all alignment goes astray.
C) The clamping arrangement causes misalignment.
THE SOLUTION TO THIS IS THE QUATRO:
2.The axle diameter increased from 50mm to 75mm, this now will increase the load/impact resistant.
4. With all these added benefits HPI has made wheel maintenance free with sealed bearing boxes and no grease is required.
5. This unit fits to existing cars with no alterations, free height, mounting centers etc.
6. The store stock will drop in components instead of having rubbers, clamps and cannon box wheels. The quarto has one complete unit.
GENERAL FACTS :
With load capacity on 2 bearings per 2 wheels as per the Cannonbox wheels est. work life ± 3 months.
Quatro with 4 bearings to 5 TON per 2 wheels.
This improves safety, durability and cost saving, est. work life ± 18 -24 months.
The Quatro is a patented product of High Power innovations
Patent no : 2002 / 0961
THE QUATRO HAS PROVEN ITSELF WITH TIME:
Since the introduction of the Quatro wheels we have seen this product out perform any other product on the market. In the years that have gone past we have had Quatro’s being used for more than 6 years without it failing and only the wheel casting that were worn and needed replacement. All axle boxes still turning & moving freely.
In January 2010 we had 19 Quatro’s come in for repair on job number , HPI- 5578. All these quarto were from the 2005 December – 2006 March . All boxes were still turning , only the wheel were worn. We replaced the bearing , seals & wheel castings and they were ready to be returned for another few years to come.

Old CMH & failures
This CMH Box was scraped due to bearing failure with resulted in the shaft ripping up the box end, center plates & the shaft it self rendering it useless.
A closer look at the damage of the bearing failure.
This is a re-conditioned CMH Wheel assembly with no standard sealing arrangement except for the bearing seal itself be it 6314 2RS.
No standard sealing arrangement as can be seen on this photograph. Leaving a clear space between the wheel and box end.
HPI Quatro Rolvec – The CMH Solution
Here is the new Quatro Rolvec box being assembled with tapered roller bearings.
The Bearing assembly has now been fitted with a specially designed bearing spacer to give the bearing maximum life & durability.
Now the the spacer has been fitted into place with the second tapered bearing , leaving only space for the last uni seal.

Tags: HPI, ISO accredited
In July 2009 we received a letter from Goldfields shared services to be ISO 9001 : 2008 certified. Since then we have started to implement the requirement on our current Quality management system to meet the ISO 9001 : 2008 standard requirements. Charl Venter has since received his certificate for implementing the Quality management system through TIQMS and thus is completing his course for internal auditor in February 2010. As planning goes along we are excited to do our own internal audit to find faults & improve on the current quality management system and be certified to ISO 9001 : 2008 in June / July 2010! Doing customer surveys on how to improve on our current service delivery & customer satisfaction!
