TBC10-1 Tread Band Cutter

Motor Type

Category: Stage 3, TBC

Type: Tire Cutting Machine

The TBC10-1 Tread Band Cutter removes rounded tread edges after sidewalls have been removed and the tread cut (at least once) into a strip. Removing the curved edges allows tread bands to lay flat and be manipulated in ways that were previously impractical. These bands can be processed into a number of finished goods (cattle mats, blasting mats, etc) or shredded/chipped into rubber multch. The hardened steel cutting discs will cut 100,000 treads.

Unlike the TBC5-1, the TBC10-1 automatically adjusts to various size treads; maximizing the amount of tread recovered for each tread. There are 2 lights that indicate the machine's 3 states:

  • Green - Ready to load.
  • Red - Tread band cutting in progress.
  • Green+Red - Tread band cutting transitioning to ready.


Remove rounded edges along treads.
