Beumer Group will showcase its automated tire handling system, which delivers higher productivity and efficiency than conventional systems. By automating the handling of green tires, the company’s Tire Tray System virtually eliminates the risk of the tires being damaged or deformed during the build and finishing processes. The Tire Tray System offers tire manufacturers higher capacity throughput using less equipment and space, at a lower cost.
In the automated system, green tires are placed into a ‘tray’ that transports them through the complete build-to-curing process. No additional handling is necessary. The Tire Tray System combines transportation, sortation and storage of green tires in a single system. Each tire is loaded into an individual-controlled tray as it leaves the tire building machine for storage or transportation direct to the curing press while remaining in the same tray. This avoids any need to grip, lift or reposition the tire, ensuring that it is not damaged in any way.
