To enhance the productivity of Volánbusz Hungary’s retreading operations, Marangoni has supplied its facility in Győr with a new Ringer 2000 machine.
Until now, the company has used a RingTreader 1000 to retread tires. The new Ringer 2000 features Marangoni’s RingTread system to increase the standardization of components, and it is anticipated that it will enable an increase in productivity and reliability at the site.
“The Ringer 2000 offers Volánbusz Hungary a host of advantages,” said Leo Linkesch, area manager at Marangoni. “Compared to the RingTreader 1000 used previously, it provides a more balanced ring arrangement on the casing, due to its 10 jaws instead of eight.”
“The RingTreader 1000 served us well for over two decades, but it’s time to embrace modernity. With the new Ringer machine, we are stepping into a more sophisticated era of retreading,” explained Tamás Kovács, technical plant manager, Volánbusz.
“Our primary goal is to further increase the quantity and quality of our RingTread tire production, particularly to cater to our extensive bus fleet, as we are the largest public passenger transport company in Hungary, operating around 6,000 buses nationwide.”
Retreading operations form part of Volánbusz Hungary’s commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility.
“Retreading is a sustainable business practice that allows us to recover tires after their first life, ultimately saving energy and raw materials and significantly reducing waste, further reinforcing our commitment to delivering top-quality, sustainable and efficient transportation solutions to passengers nationwide,” added Kovács.
