A live demonstration of the Tire Tray System on Stand No. 8050 at Tire Technology Expo 2018, Hannover, Germany, from 20th-22nd February will be held by BEUMER Group.
The Tire Tray System challenges the conventional approach to tire manufacturing with a fully automated process which delivers higher productivity and efficiency.
Developed by BEUMER Group, the system automates the transportation, sortation and storage of green tires within a single tray system virtually eliminating the risk of green tires being damaged or deformed during the build and finishing processes.
As each tire leaves the Tire Building Machine (TBM), it is loaded into its own individually-controlled tray. The tire then remains in the same tray to be stored or transported directly to onwards processing. The fully automated system avoids additional handling and eliminates the need to grip, lift or reposition the tire which can compromise the quality of the finished product. This results in an intelligent and safer method of handling green tires.
“There has been significant interest in this concept from within the tire manufacturing sector,” explained Jens Rosenberg, Director, Tire Handling, BEUMER Group. “One major global tire manufacturer has already installed the system and is using it to increase the efficiency of the manufacturing process.”
The live demo of the Tire Tray System will be on BEUMER Group Stand No. 8050 at Tire Technology Expo 2018, Hannover, Germany, from 20th-22nd February.
