1. Initial Inspection
Each tyre will go through a visual and non-destructive inspection procedure before it enters the process. Tyres with any major defects will be rejected.
Shearography uses leading edge laser technology to optically dissect tyre casings, as cameras capture images vacuum pressure is applied highlighting separation defects.
The old tread is mechanically removed using a high-speed buffer. This state-of-the-art machine profiles the tyre to an exact diameter to accept the new tread pattern.
Adhesion cement is applied evenly to the tyre and allowed to dry in preparation for the cushion gum and new tread to be applied.
5. Skiving & Section Repairs
Any surface injuries are removed and section repairs carried out before the tyre advances through the process.
4. Tread Selection
Depending on the casing type and application the correct tread is selected and checked so that a high quality retread can be produced.
7. Building Ring Tread
The Ring Tread system involves using this highly automated efficient machinery to produce a splice less Retread.
