Tire production requires the automation of high power variable speed systems, extruders and calenders, as well as the careful and precise synchronization of handling systems, conveyors, winders and unwinders, to guarantee the required thicknesses and avoid accumulation and material ironing. Tekna Automation and Control is able to offer automated applications at any stage of the production process for the production of tires and systems for quality control of semi-finished and finished products.
Rubber production obtained from the powder raw material which is mixed with additives and aggregates and it is transformed into continuous rubber mats of different widths and thicknesses.
Rubber homogenizer mixer is necessary to make the rubber consistent and homogeneous. The great forces involved require high-power rotation systems, synchronism of movements and safety of the machines, to safeguard operators safety.
