Traceability Guaranteed

We use our identification solutions to accompany you reliably through the entire process chain: from delivery of the raw materials to production of the semi-finished products to tire manufacturing and beyond. Each tire can be uniquely identified and every process step traced. This uninterrupted documentation supports a reliable process and helps you meet the requirements for traceability.

Our performance range includes industrial image processing, for example, using SmartCameras, vision sensors and barcode readers. You also have access to various RFID solutions which are based on the wide spectrum of LF, HF and UHF technologies and a huge variety of data carriers, read/write heads and processor units. On this basis we are also able to handle any of your unique tasks for optimal results. Take advantage of our long years of automation expertise and contact us.

Applications

  • Detect tires on the conveyor line

    With BOS retroreflective sensors

    Use our retroreflective sensors when removing the tire from the curing press after vulcanization without manual intervention. These sensors reliably detect whether there is another tire already on the conveyor just when one is being unloaded from the press. If not, automated unloading can start and the tire transported on to quality assurance. For greater process security you can use our retroreflective sensors for additional inspections at any desired location on the conveyor line.

    Features

    • Simple alignment thanks to generous mounting tolerances and long range
    • Reliably detect objects regardless of their surface, color and material, even with shiny surfaces

  • Identifying raw material

    With BVS HS-P handheld code readers and BNI RS232 converters

    Identify raw materials for the rubber mixture with 100% accuracy before they are added to the mixer. Our user-friendly handheld code readers handle this quality check with the utmost reliability. These portable, ergonomically designed readers help you to execute the first-in-first-out principle, remain true to the recipe and ensure all relevant quality criteria. Light in weight, they can read all common 2D, 1D and stacked barcodes.

    Our RS232 converters also let you connect any RS232 device to an IO-Link terminal for enjoying all the benefits of IO-Link.

    Features

    • Reliable read confirmation with acoustic signal and LED indicator
    • Intuitive aiming system using a highly visible laser marking frame
    • Charge once – up to 30,000 read cycles using lithium ion rechargeable battery

  • Verify each production step

    With BVS SmartCameras

    SmartCameras from Balluff ensure you of unambiguous identification of each tire at any point in time and for every single production step. They let you proceed to the following quality inspection with confidence.

    The SmartCamera reads barcodes automatically and reliably, no matter whether they are in the form of a sticker, direct printed or laser etched. Orientation deviations in the barcode are not a problem, so that the conveyor can be loaded without loss of time and without regard to the tire position. The barcode must simply be located within the field of view.

    Features

    • Simple integration into the production environment through IO-Link
    • Safe, customer-specific result management for the controller or for the server
    • Robust, industrial-grade design
    Verify each production step

  • Each manufacturing step is transparent

    With BIS industrial RFID systems

    Do you mark your tires using RFID data carriers? With Balluff you have access to a wide range of RFID solutions which can be individually adapted to your particular requirements thanks to the product variety. All the data carrier information is automatically read as objects on the conveyor pass by. Another advantage: every production step is consistently documented and can be read back at any point in time. This increases the quality of all process steps and thereby that of the produced tires, so that the scrap rate is significantly minimized.

    Features

    • Rugged and contamination-proof, ideal for harsh environments
    • Transparent process since all the information about material, time and utilization is available at all times
    Each manufacturing step is transparent

  • Uniquely identify and ensure organized storage

    With BIS industrial RFID systems

    Use our RFID solutions for reliably identifying tires after quality inspection to allow organized storage of the final product. UHF RFID lets you track each individual tire while loading on to the pallets. This simplifies later picking enormously and makes the process transparent.

    Features

    • Consistent and thorough documentation in real time
    • Long ranges
    • Automatic detection without manual scan processes
