The BLUE DART has been developed on the basis of experience achieved in satisfying a continuously increasing quality demand in retreading. Main performances of the this machine are:

  • High output
  • Best uniform and consistent grain (shoulder and tyre centre) at high production rate.
  • Great variety of different profiles, with quick and easy program change
  • Consistent quality through automated working cycle.
  • Mechanical and electronic reliability.
  • Numerically controlled 3 axis movement.
  • Range: 15" - 24".
  • Bead plate system for tyre mounting and rotation.
  • Advanced numerical control, with coloured screen, hard disk, floppy unit, user-friendly software and the possibility of storing up to thousands of programs.
  • 3 simultaneous axis control for keeping the buffing head perpendicular to the tyre’s surface, with axis driven by brushless motors.
  • Accurate centering of buffed profile with respect to the tyre.
  • Stout heavy service construction.
  • Possibility of automatic and semiautomatic working cycle.
  • Sidewall brushing with special vertical stout brushing group.
  • Possibility of sidewall brushing or buffing through special numerically controlled 2 axis group (optional).
  • Pneumatic bead setting with mechanical locking.
  • Pneumatic or electric lifter.
  • Adjustable and programmable plate rotation speed.
  • Tyre double inflation.
  • Buffing blade cooling system.
  • Buffing cycle with "Soft Start".
  • Raised set-up of the buffing group with respect to the ground for easy cleaning.
  • A mobile buffing arm for manual operations, with the choice of brushing, grinding or buffing (optional).
  • Peeling tool with peeling chips extraction conveyor (optional).
  • Tyre circumference measuring device (optional).
  • Sound reducing enclosure (optional).
  • Possibility of remote supervision of machine’s production and productivity (optional).
  • Electronic system to detect metal plies (optional).
