Italian materials handling specialist, Cassioli, is attracting attention with live demonstrations of its electric monorail system (EMS) for green tire handling, and the new gantry machine to transfer finished tires to a storage area.
EMS operates up to 4m above ground to provide clearance over machines, and shuttles green tires from storage areas to curing presses. Recently upgraded, it has new features that include SEW servomotors for more precise control, and improved wi-fi communications for reduced risk of signal interference between shuttles and the system management.
Meanwhile, the new gantry system is the latest part of Cassioli’s ‘tire move’ solution. It builds on the company’s expertise from other industries, such as white goods. On receiving the finished product from the production line, it reads the tire’s barcode and then sorts and stacks it appropriately in the storage area.
Key account manager, Giorgio Gori, reported that Cassioli is expecting a very successful year, with lots of RFQs already received. “We have already made lots of interesting contacts at the show,” he said.
Visitors can view Cassioli’s technology on Stand 6070. Tire Technology Expo is open until Thursday, 16 February.
