The VULCAN-VULCAP model 19T Wide Belt Treadsander is constructed on a rugged box type to ensure minimum vibration and deflection. Available in three belt widths.

The VULCAN-VULCAP Treadsander uses resin bonded silicon carbide sanding belts for scorch free, uniform texture and best adhesion.

VULCAN-VULCAP Tread Buffer CB #40
Conveyor System:
The conveyor table extends 30 inches at the infeed and the drive consists of a flange mounted helical gear reducer driven through fixed center variable speed sheaves. A heavy-duty 3 ply rubber rufftop conveyor belt is included.

Motors and Controls:
The main drive, fan cooled motor is totally enclosed and the magnetic starters and control relays are built into a UL approved, dust tight enclosure All controls are mounted on the open side of the machine and will operate on 110 volts.

Automatic Tracking and Tensioning:
Uniform tension of the abrasive belt is maintained by an air cylinder, which is built into the center post. A photoelectric system tracks the abrasive belt and provides a controllable, uniform rate of oscillation. Solid state modules with quick disconnects are used. A pneumatic device on each side of the abrasive belt monitors the tracking system and interlocks with the braking system.

Safety Interlocks:
If any part of the pneumatic system fails while the machine is operating, the braking system will bring the machine to a three second emergency stop.

Contact Roller:
A 7 inch diameter, rubber covered, ground and serrated contact is driven through multiple V belts, resulting in maximum power input and minimum abrasive belt slippage. All high-speed rolls are dynamically balanced. Sealed ball bearings are used throughout the machine. All necessary belt guards and dust hoods are included.





  • The VULCAN-VULCAP Treadsplicer is designed to produce a continuous length tread and reduce wastage of tread rubber.
  • The air operated Treadsplicer produces precise spliced treads for use on automatic builders.
  • The Splicer is available in steam or 110 volt electrically heated models and uses matrix plates for perfect matching of tread.
  • The Treadsplicer with temperature control and indicator applies 100 psi pressure to precure cushion gum for high adhesion.




VULCAN-VULCAP Treadcutter with air operated guillotine provides a perfect cut everytime.
