Inline weight inspection of running tread profiles for passenger and truck tires

The dimensionCONTROL TMWI 8302.LC system is suitable for the inline weight inspection of continuous running rubber profiles (tread pattern or sidewalls) for passenger and truck tires. Based on the force measurement principle, the inspection system uses two load cells which measure the deflection of the measurement conveyor. These sensor elements are attached to a massive construction, which ensures a long-term mechanical stability of the system. The measurement conveyor uses precise and balanced aluminum rollers with special surface treatment. This ensures a low deadweight, avoids influence of unbalance and eliminates material sticking. Data obtained from the load cells are processed in the implemented PLC cards which determine the measured weight mathematically.The software included offers a variety of measurement data processing, definition of design profiles, statistical analysis of measured profiles and diagnostic tools.

Advantages:

  • Ideal for precise inline weight inspection of running tread profiles for passenger and truck tires
  • Adjustable extrusion head/controllable extruder
  • Automatic profile sorting and remote access
  • Ideal for harsh environments prevailing in the preparation area due to its robust design

Technical parameters:

  • Measuring range: weight up to 10 kg/m
  • Weight accuracy < ±1 g (static); < ±5 g (dynamic)
  • Length of the weighing conveyor: 500 m
