The GfA Breaker Rework Line

The Breaker Rework Line is a reprocessing line for Steelcord- or Breaker Material.

The machine will reduce your breaker SCRAP significantly. Removed breakers from the tire-building machines can be applied over the splicing table, cut, gum strips can be applied, the final product can be wound up in cassettes or rolls. The breaker material can be applied by cassettes or rolls as well as over a splicing table. Condition for this machine is, that all breakers (during 1 run) have the same cutting or steelcord angle. 
The cutting station (shear-cutting) can rework material and cut minimum strip widths of 3mm. A gum-edge applicator can apply 1 or 2 strips, depending on the incomming material. Gum Strips can be applied or wrapped.

The reworked Breaker Material can be wound-up in cassettes or on rolls and be sent back into tire production.
