High tire quality under demanding conditions
The tire gets its final shape in heating presses. The components involved must therefore withstand the harsh conditions of vulcanizing the green tires. In addition to heat, steam and pressure, they are also exposed to aggressive liquids such as releasing agents or special hydraulic oils. Balluff has mastered the entire array of the required sensors and offers high-quality, robust and long-life technology for the highest tire quality: This includes high-precision position measurement systems that are insensitive to contamination, pressure sensors for high temperatures, high-temperature-rated inductive sensors and high-performance network technology.
The tire curing press must be tightly closed when the green tire is pressed into the hot mold under high pressure and steam. A reliable closing stroke is ensured by Balluff BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors. Even with high temperatures and strong vibrations.
Balluff pressure transmitters monitor the pressure in the curing press accurately and reliably. Eleven different pressure ranges, voltage or current outputs as well as various process connections are available.
All pneumatic lines come together in the control cabinet. With our IO-Link valve terminal interfaces, the valve terminals are connected to the controller using a simple industrial cable. This makes it easy to control the reliable movement of the pneumatic cylinders. Which saves on costs: With IO-Link, you can reduce the wiring effort and require less cable and hose material.
