TRM: Automation is next step for retreading business
TRM says bringing automation into the tyre retreading is the next step towards fast-forward the retreading to a higher level.
Beside the autonomous and automated retreading lines already available, TRM has just delivered the first full automatized finishing cell for premium retreading material. A full production cell has just been commissioned at TRM’s facility and ready to be moved to the US market.
The system features a bright yellow robotic arm from Fanuc, chosen as technological partner, which handles the retreading material through the production steps, removing operator intervention – a role that has been elevated to a supervisory level in order to raise product quality and consistency.
According to TRM, the new automated cell is the first step towards a whole review of the production concept of premium retreading.
TRM (Tire Retreading Machinery) is based in the province of Trento (Italy), the company is specialized in the design and manufacturing of machines and production lines for the retreading of passenger, truck, OTR and aircraft tyres.
