Robust and Reliable - TRANSNORM Belt Curve Conveyors for the gentle handling of tires

All around the globe, TRANSNORM belt curves prove their performance and reliability day after day in tire production and distribution. In these processes belt curves show their excellence when it comes to conveying demanding loads - such as tires or even Green Tires - around the curve. The holistic construction concept of the TRANSNORM belt curve conveyors provides the best-in-class values in terms of energy consumption, smoothness in running and maintenance-friendliness. The results are particularly low life cycle costs and a high level of efficiency.

TRANSNORM belt curve conveyors provide the following benefits for tire industry:

  • Best-in-class in performance, reliability, energy consumption and maintenance-friendliness
  • Robust construction with low self-weight
  • Optimised in terms of weight, space and installation
  • Ease of integration in new and existing handling systems
  • Patented belt guiding system and conical drums for maximum reliability and smoothness in running
  • Low-tension conveyor belt drive across the entire width of the belt enables extremely long times of deployment

Two functions, one conveyor, full speed...

Helix curves are used in conveyor systems for tires when besides transport over a curve, there is also a difference in height that needs to be overcome. They ensure the gentle transport of tires and even Green Tires while maintaining their position. Thanks to the holistic construction concept, TRANSNORM helix belt conveyors combine performance and reliability. In addition, the effective space requirement of the conveyor belt in the system layout reduces and the entire handling right up to belt replacement is highly simplified.

TRANSNORM Helix Belt Conveyors fore tire industry provide the following benefits

  • Gentle handling while maintaining Position of tires and Green Tires
  • Extremely high values of througput
  • Less controlling effort and no advance cyclic operation
  • Patented belt guiding system and conical drums for maximum reliability and smoothness in running
  • Low-tension conveyor belt drive across the entire width of the belt enables extremely long times of deployment

High conveying speeds and careful handling with exemplary running smoothness

TRANSNORM standard Belt Conveyors are deployed in merging lines of conveyor systems and logistics in the tire industry. They are also characterised by gentle handling of demanding loads, such as Green Tires. You can implement extremely powerful belt conveyor systems for tire  by using conveyor systems of up to 30,000 mm as well as by applying options such as conveyor gates or kink points for overcoming differences in height.

TRANSNORM Belt Conveyors for tire industry provide the following benefits

  • Low noise development even at high speeds of conveyance
  • Particularly gentle product handling with sensitive goods for transport
  • No slippage between the goods being conveyed and the transport level
  • Adaptation is exact to the millimetre in the running of the system
  • Modular design comprising standardised assemblies and therefore a high level of flexibility for subsequent adaptations
  • Low maintenance
  • Drive pulley with wear-proof friction cover

High sorting performance with TRANSNORM Roller Function Conveyors

With the help of the TRANSNORM Roller Function Conveyors with a central drive you can achieve very high sorting performance in the tire industry with solutions that are energy-efficient and can be configured in a flexible manner. The porcess of discharging with swivel  wheels provides high functional reliability and careful handling of tires at a time. In conjunction with destination tracks arranged on one side or both sides and upstream TRANSNORM Timing Conveyors for gap formation, a complete sorting solution can be designed very quickly.

TRANSNORM Roller Function Conveyors with a central drive provide the following benefits for tire industry

  • Particularly careful handling of tires
  • High sorting performance with a high degree of energy efficiency at the same time (e.g. 1 drive for 10 metres of conveyor route and seven outfeed stations)
  • Complete reversibility
  • Precise - and even subsequent - adaptation to the goods being conveyed is easily possible as and when desired
  • Uniformly high power transfer on the rollers
  • Extremely low-noise operation
