Efficient use of tyre building machines
Tyre manufacturers are faced with great challenges: The quality standards of the automobile industry are increasing, yet tyre production must remain economical. Efficiency in the use of tyre building machines is the key to this. Balluff offers advanced technology in this area – for example, in the production of different batch sizes with minimal changeover times. High-quality sensors detect end positions of the pneumatic cylinders, position the sliders for the correct tyre build, or monitor for liner sag. Solutions from Balluff support sophisticated machine concepts, increase productivity and guarantee high system availability.
Balluff magnetic cylinder sensors reliably detect the end position of the piston of the pneumatic cylinders and guarantee that the tyre building machine moves safely. The sensors, which are resistant to temperatures up to 105 °C, replace wear-prone magnetic reed switches and have a long service life.
For a high accuracy of fit, every tyre layer must be precisely fed, wound and cut. Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors position the slide with precision, even in rough conditions. This ensures that the tyre build precisely complies with the specifications.
Balluff inductive distance sensors continuously monitor the roll diameter in order to continuously provide the winding roll with tread strips for the green tyre. The robust sensors also perform sag control. The difficult-to-detect black layers have no effect on the result.
Balluff inclination sensors reliably monitor the tilt movements of the conveyor belt. This allows the belt to be accurately guided when it is moved for the subsequent work steps. The inclination sensors guarantee a high accuracy of 0.1° and very low temperature drift.
