Tire Diverting & Sorting
Product Family: Pneumatic
Product Used: MXP63P Rodless Band Cylinder with Profiled Rail Bearing
Product Type: Standard
Diverting and sorting various size auto and truck tires during manufacturing.
A tire manufacturer had used pneumatic units from three competitors, each failed because of carrier moment loading issues. This resulted in unscheduled downtime, overtime expense, and re-work. The units were not durable enough to withstand the 24/7 application demands of diverting and sorting various size tires (including large truck tires.)
The MXP63P rodless band cylinder with profiled rail bearing proved to be a robust solution and provided more machine flexibility for various tire sizes. Tolomatic profiled rail rodless band cylinders have been in continuous operation for several years without any issues.
- Eliminated costs of unscheduled downtime, overtime, and re-work
- Significantly reduced electric utility costs and increased efficiency
- Improved machine flexibility to handle a variety of tire sizes without manual changeover
