4JET embarks on tyre technology tour
Laser mould cleaning and tyre marking firm 4JET Technologies GmbH (based in Alsdorf, Germany) has announced plans for a “tyre technology roadshow” from now until the end of October.
The tour will include live demonstrations of laser machines for cleaning vulcanizing moulds and for tyre marking will be performed at production facilities of the leading European tyre producers.
“Our Tire Technology Truck makes it possible to present our high-tech developments to tyre manufacturers everywhere in Europe,” explains Florian Schreiber, key account manager Tire Industry.
Laser-based cleaning of tyre molds reportedly has advantages over methods such as CO2-dry ice cleaning. Firstly the laser does not damage the valve systems and it is a dry process. An average mould is cleaned in less than 30 minutes.
The mobile laser machine for tyre marking allows to create serial numbers, bitmap files, barcodes or the customer`s logo onto the tiye surface, providing for a unique, human readable traceability over the entire product life.
