Ensuring high tire quality

Ensure the high quality of your tires and the smoothest of processes in tire building. To make sure these critical process steps are accomplished optimally we provide you with sensors you can use to perfectly equip your tire building machine.

For example, to exactly position your sliders our various solutions offer you a variety of options. While at the same time you enhance process security. Because you prevent downtimes and ensure continuous material provision and consistently high process speed. So that each tire blank is efficiently and correctly constructed.

Applications

  • Control the process

    With BOD photoelectric distance sensors

    With our photoelectric distance sensors you monitor the liner sag to ensure correct material feed speed. By monitoring the process of tire building you are able to intervene in timely fashion when problems arise. The time-of-flight technology of these sensors ensures stable and precise measurements regardless of the surface composition. Another advantage: the compact IP67 housing means the sensors can be easily integrated even in tight spaces.

    Features

    • Stable measurements with high accuracy regardless of the material surface
    • Foreground and background suppression
    • Scalable measuring range
    • Simple, intuitive operation with set-up buttons and display
    Control the process

  • Monitor material feed

    With BSI inclination sensors

    You reliably monitor the tilt movements of the conveyor belt in the tire building machine using our inclination sensors. This ensures that the needed liners are reliably fed as soon the next process steps require it. The high 0.1° accuracy of our inclination sensors ensures exact feed. In addition, the non-contacting technology is wear- and maintenance-free, so that high equipment uptime also supports you.

    Features

    • Continuous detection of rotary movements
    • Compact form factor saves space
    • Centering function for flexible installation
    Monitor material feed

  • Position the slider exactly

    With BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors

    To ensure that all the tire components on the tire building machine can be brought together into a green tire without wasted time, our magnetostrictive position measuring systems enable exact positioning of your sliders. Rapid construction of the tire components is ensured and travel movements are perfectly controlled.
    Alternatively, you can use our magnetic encoders to determine the changing positions of the feed mechanisms with utmost precision.

    Features

    • Highly precise
    • Time-saving since it can be used immediately after installation with no homing move
    • Generous measuring lengths
    Position the slider exactly

  • Ensure controlled movements

    With BMF magnetic field sensors

    Our magnetic field sensors reliably detect the end positions of the piston in pneumatic cylinders to ensure proper motion of the tire building machine. These sensors check the piston position without contact and wear-free. This makes them especially durable. In addition, you can install the magnetic field sensors directly in the cylinder slot. This ensures stable holding and makes them ideal for flush mounting in space-critical applications.

    Features

    • Wide temperature range: –25…85 °C
    • IP67 protection
    • Easy to integrate with their short form factors
    Ensure controlled movements

  • Guarantee material availability

    With BUS ultrasonic sensors

    Would you like to ensure that there is always sufficient material on the drums for the tire building process? Our ultrasonic sensors are ideal for accomplishing this. They measure the exact diameter of the rolls, whether the material is rubber, textile or steel. This ensures that new material is fed at exactly the right time before the machine runs out. Our ultrasonic sensors also feature an IO-Link interface. This lets you transmit diagnostic information – for example to the LED SmartLight stack light where you can view the current status at any time.

    Features

    • Available with IO-Link interface
    • Any material, color or surface composition
    • Insensitive to contamination
    • Extremely precise, small blind zones
    Guarantee material availability

  • Always keep an eye on operational status

    With the BNI SmartLight stack lights

    Use our SmartLight to visualize the current operating status of your tire building machine in detail and even represent progressions and trends. The SmartLight provides a flexible color spectrum you can individually define in the controller. Detect critical machine conditions and material shortages and respond to them in time to avoid costly downtimes of the tire building machine.

    Features

    • Visualize output signals from your sensors in detail
    • No mechanical modifications, simple to set the parameters
    • Flexible, individually definable color spectrum with various modes such as run light or segment mode, also display trends
    Always keep an eye on operational status
