Final Finish

Improve efficiency with problem-free sorting, merging, and conveyance of tires through curves in the final finish area

With the introduction of the Transverse Roller Top (TRT) belt, Intralox replaced problematic, high-maintenance logistical systems in the final finish area with no-maintenance, no-downtime, straightforward solutions. Replacements of 90- and 180-degree curves in tire plants have resulted in considerable uptime improvements.

The simplicity and low maintenance requirements of the Transverse Roller Top belts have proven effective on many final finish applications, including 90- and 180-degree turns and sorting and merging applications. Today, many modern tire plants have based their entire final finish tire handling system (including mergers, sorters, accumulation, and transport) on the Intralox TRT solution. Compared to traditional technology, the Intralox system greatly reduces downtime and maintenance.
