Auto & Truck Tyres (A&TT), one of the leading South African suppliers of new and retreaded tires, selected Marangoni to completely upgrade its plant located in Wadeville, in the Johannesburg metropolitan area. This large A&TT retreading plant produces a little under 1,000 retreaded truck tires a day, using precured material supplied by Leader Rubber Company and Ringtread rings.
The latest generation machinery installed includes the Giotto 3000 buffing machine, Black Swan 3000 cushion gum applicator and Constrictor 3000 building machines.
The 3000 line is designed for plants with high daily output, guaranteeing up to around 120 tires per shift. The Giotto 3000 is an ultra-automatic buffing machine with very high production capacity, ensuring high precision and quality of the buffed profiles.The Black Swan 3000, on the other hand, is a fully automatic machine that both applies the cushion gum and retreads the tire or reinforces sidewalls, all without using adhesive solutions and thus avoiding solvent emissions in the atmosphere. Finally, the Constrictor 3000 building machines are highly automated and provide a very high production capacity, managing strip application with constant tension and thus ensuring balance and regular tread wear.
