Material reclamation from used tires for use in automotive tire manufacturing.
Material reclamation from scrap tires was a significant financial opportunity for a tire manufacturer, if it could be done efficiently. They were previously using hydraulic cylinders but wanted to eliminate messy leaks, gain floor-space, and increase efficiency of operation.
At the tire reclamation station, a Tolomatic GSA24 guided rod-style ball screw electric actuator was attached to tooling with a shredding blade. This was used to strip the rubber away from the steel radial in the tires so material can be re-used. This helped achieve all the desired goals allowing the reclamation process to be completed effectively and efficiently.
- Durable electric actuator held up in demanding application
- Efficient, accurate operation allowed for return on investment / project success
- Eliminated messy leaks
