Crisplant automates tyre handling

CRISPLANT , a part of the Beumer Group and a global supplier of automated material handling systems is launching its first automated material handling system to be specifically customised for the tyre production industry.

The Crisplant Tire Tray Transportation and Sortation System will ensure gentle transport of uncured and cured tyres and automates manual handling as well as provides traceability and tracking of individual tyres through every stage of the production process.

The automated system includes features such as fully automated loading and unloading, end-to-end tracking of tyres using RFID technology, and the ability to handle a wide variety of tyre sizes within the same system.
Detailed management statistics, in addition to system-wide visibility and control, also enable the system to be continually optimised to enhance process efficiency.

The new automated handling system will be launched at the Tyre Technology Expo 2013 on February in Germany.(RJA)
