Marangoni Meccanica has launched a new corporate brand identity. These changes come at a time when the company, which was recently recapitalized and spun off from the Marangoni Group in June, is evolving through a strategic journey with the objective of offering to its customers an even more powerful support and commitment.
Two months have passed since Marangoni Meccanica changed hands, exiting the Marangoni Group with 10 million euros of recapitalization from new local partners: The Finanziaria Trentina, Alpenring, the South Tyrol-based financial firm Caran and now Marangoni Meccani has appointed a new CEO and broadened its board make-up. All this amounts to a “restart”, according to […]
Italian retread equipment manufacturer TRM has developed a new line of automated retreading equipment for the US market and signed an agreement with Shamrock Marketing, Inc. of Louisville Kentucky to be the authorized dealer. The new line, called “Latitude”, is built around a robotic style buffing machine that is designed to minimize process time, cut labour, and increase consistency in buff texture. The equipment line will be officially launched in March 2018 during the Mid-American-Truck-Show in Louisville, KY with live demonstrations at Shamrock’s facility.
TRM, a division of Marangoni Meccanica dedicated the development and manufacture of retreading equipment, has announced plans to unveil its latest Omega 60 tyre building machine at Autopromotec (Bologna, Italy – from 20-24 May).
TRM, the Marangoni Meccanica division dedicated to the sale and development of retreading machinery, is reporting that its premium “Black Dragon” tyre building machines have pushed the envelope in terms of technology and helped inspire growth in mould cure retreading in general as well. The Black Dragon, purportedly the best machine of its kind available in the market for bead to bead application, is available in two versions: the Black Dragon 90, featuring a rotating twin turret serving a 90mm extruder for tread application and a vertical extruder for sidewall application, and the bigger version Black Dragon 120 (formerly known as Alpha Twin Dual Black Swan), featuring a 120mm extruder for the tread and two sidewall extruders.
During a recent sales meeting, Marangoni Spa truck and earthmoving division’s management reported that, despite the market and overall demand not being expected to pick up over the coming months, this part of the business has achieved increased market share and profitability in the first nine months of 2012. Furthermore company representatives report that the development plans put in place mean they expect positive results achieved this year to continue into 2013.
Demand for larger size OTR and earthmover retreads has been robust over the past couple of years, and Marangoni Tyre Machinery has now introduced a product aimed at this segment of the market. The Trio Super 63” can, as its name suggests, accommodate up to and including 63-inch size radials. Marangoni reports the unit can peel, buff and groove OTR and earthmover tyres rapidly, and as the tyres being processed can be fitted upon flanges and inflated up to 1 bar, the Italian manufacturer is confident the resultant geometric stability is maximal.
According to Marangoni Meccanica SpA, producer of the Marangoni Tyre Machinery brand, a key company aim is to deliver customised industrial solutions that are quality focused, highly innovative and flexible – and in doing so provide end-users with the best possible solution. The company has been developing production technologies for both new and retreaded tyres since the sixties, and in recent years has invested into developing its proprietary “Alpha R” strip winding equipment.
At present the Italian firm is placing a particular emphasis on the development of innovative equipment and state-of-the-art technological solutions for the manufacturing of large radial tyres, including tailor-made tyre assembly systems serviced by fully automatic Alpha R applicators.
Marangoni Meccanica, the division of the Marangoni Group responsible for designing and developing new tyre technology, has recently inaugurated a new facility in Roverto, Italy. The new 11,000 m² facility will house approximately 80 employees involved in large research projects related to developing new hardware and ideas.
VMI has developed a new tyre building system, designed to produce lot sizes as small as one tyre. The company behind the technology, launched at Tyre Technology 2005 in Cologne, claims it can improve quality, reduce cost and minimize floor space. The company reports that a single unit capable of making 1200 tyres a day, requires three staff and occupies significantly less floor space than the conventional equivalent.
Visit almost any tyre retreading plant and there is a very strong chance that there will be at least one item of Marangoni tyre building equipment installed at the factory. Marangoni Meccanica is probably the best known retread equipment manufacturer in the world. This division of Marangoni is housed in the original Marangoni factory at Rovereto and grew out of the company’s need to produce equipment to help progress its own retreading operations.
