KAMA TYRES Commissions New Assembly Lines for Passenger and Light Truck Tyres
8 февраляThe equipment was purchased as part of implementing the Increasing the production of tyres by 1.2 million units per year project. The new assembly complexes use more advanced software, a user-friendly man-system interface. In addition, it is possible to produce an expanded range of the passenger and light truck tyres. Modern energy-efficient drives used in the machining equipment. The precision of applying the material to the drums throughout the entire process is ensured by laser sensors and magnets. The average time of one production cycle of assembly is 37-38 seconds and it depends on the size of the tyre assembled.
The productive capacity of each assembly complex is up to 2 thousand tyres per day. The new equipment operates with an optimal level of reliability and safety. The automatic system minimizes human intervention in the production process and at the same time it improves the quality of manufacturing the passenger and light truck tyres. Commissioning has already been completed at one of the new complexes and manufacturing accuracy tests have been carried out, while the commissioning works are underway at the second complex.
The APEXER new line for applying the filling cord to the side ring of radial tyres with a landing diameter of up to 20 inches, designed for automatic assembly of pre-manufactured side rings with a filling cord produced on the line, has been put into warranty operation. The final product is the side wing, on which the tyre disc is installed. More than 2.5 thousand side wings are assembled per shift. The line is equipped with a modern and user-friendly interface and a 17-inch color touch screen. The principle of complete continuous monitoring of all components is also provided through the application of the PIXXEL video system integrated into the machine. The operation of this detection system based on laser triangulation checks the joint area of the filling cord, which allows real time rejecting low-quality products without the operator s the attendance.
