VULCAN-VULCAP TR-106 TREADBUILDER/STITCHER

When it comes to versatility in a retreading unit the VULCAN-VULCAP TR-106 Treadbuilder/Stitcher  is second to none in performance, ease of operation, ruggedness and price.

Features and benefits

SPACE SAVING
The VULCAN-VULCAP Treadbuilder/Stitcher requires a maximum of 6' x 7' (2 m x 2.30 m) working space. With conventional methods, using a spreader, manual stitcher, table with cutter and cushion gum applicator, a minimum space of 12' x 20' (4 m x 6.70 m) is generally required. This equipment saves space, which is always needed in a retread shop.

LOW MAINTENANCE
The VULCAN-VULCAP Treadbuilder requires a ½" air line at 100 psi and a little oil; thatís all! The unit is completely operated by an air motor, which is low on maintenance and very durable. No expensive electric AC/DC controls are required for reversing. Electric controls of this type tend to be troublesome in retread shops.

QUALITY CONTROL
The VULCAN-VULCAP Treadbuilder/Stitcher is a complete quality control station. Nail holes are detected before the tread is applied. This reduces adjustments significantly.

PRODUCTIVITY
The Treadbuilder requires 1 person to operate. It is possible to completely build and envelope a tire in 10 minutes - that is 48 units per 8 hour day! Conventional systems produce 24 units per 8 hour day and often require more than 1 operator.

VERSATILITY
The Treadbuilder/Stitcher handles tires from 26" - 52" diameter with up to 15" super-single wide tread. All common commercial, industrial and truck tries, the complete range on one machine!

EASY OPERATION
This VULCAN-VULCAP unit has forward and reverse rotation with positive chain drive power. The controls are within easy reach. Both treadcutter and cushion gum holder swivel for easy casing accessibility. Operator fatigue is reduced to the minimum by elimination of the need to carry the casing from spreader to stitcher, then back to the spreader to fit the envelope. The envelope is more easily fitted onto the casing while still mounted on the machine.

ELIMINATES OPERATOR ERROR
Because all casings are inflated with the approximate bead setting to that on the road, over-short or long precure tread need not be applied to compensate for casing growth on bias ply casings as opposed to radial types where no growth (expansion) takes place on inflation.

A major cause of retread thump or splice problems is eliminated by the use of the VULCAN-VULCAP Treadbuilder/Stitcher. Because the air motor gear box locks rotation until the operator activates the foot pedal, it is possible to properly tension the precure tread as it is built onto the casing. This prevents tread at the shoulders from chunking out in service.

THE VULCAN-VULCAP TREADBUILDER/STITCHER IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF AN EFFICIENT HIGH QUALITY SHOP!
