Fast, efficient handling of sticky, green tires.
ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN. Güdel introduces its new Green Tire Trays which are designed to eliminate damage during conveyor offload, and yet they allow tires to travel the conveyor at higher speeds compared to other trays. These trays can be installed directly into existing conveyor systems, and they work with all types of systems from roller to wide-belt or narrow-belt.
Remarkably rigid and light, Güdel Green Tire Trays have a load capacity of up to 30 kg with an external diameter of up to 900 mm. Integrated stiffening ribs keep distortion to an absolute minimum, and these injection-molded trays have no impurities. (Even the slightest impurity on conventional conveyor systems can have a negative impact on the quality of tires.)
The tray is tilted at 45°, which provides optimum storage with no loss of quality. Tires can be deposited very precisely thanks to positioning accuracy of 1 mm. The trays can be fitted with RFID chips, which enable individual analysis and facilitate data tracking.
In order to make them more noticeable when used in visual identification systems, Güdel's Green Tire Trays are available in any color and empty trays are easily stackable.
Güdel debuts the new Green Tire Trays at Tire Technology Expo, February 10-12, 2015, Cologne, Germany, Hall 11.1, booth 3170.
