The TBC5-1 Tread Band Cutter, like the TBC10-1, is designed to remove the long curved edges of passenger and light truck tire treads after the sidewalls have been removed and the tread has been 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. While the TBC10-1 creates tread band that varies based on the available width, the TBC5-1 creates a fixed width tread band at a higher rate of speed with fewer moving parts. The band width is set by installing one of four interchangeable plates. The standard widths are 2.5 inches, 3.5 inches, 4.5 inches, and 5.5 inches. Specific widths can be fabricated to suit your needs.
Operating the machine is very simple:
- Load the tread into the mouth of the machine.
- Depress the foot switch.
- Guide the tread while it is processed.
