The TCBR1-2 Tire Carcass Bead Remover is designed to remove beads from uncured tires (also referred to as green tires, first build, or second build) by making an incision with an utility blade approximately 1 inch from the inside diameter of the bead. When the cut is complete, the activation button is released and the pieces can be removed.
- Loosen the 2 blade holder thumbscrews.
- Slide out the worn blade.
- Flip the blade or slide in a replacement.
- Re-tighten the 2 blade holder thumbscrews.
The production rate averages at 4 sidewalls per minute. The blades are standard Extra Heavy Duty Utility Blades. Blade life is approximately 400-600 sidewalls. The blades can be changed in a matter of seconds; simply loosen two bolts, slide out the old blade, slide in a new blade, then re-tighten the bolts. The only maintenance required is to lubricate the drive chain and several grease fittings regularly. All parts are available from EECO, however, most of the common wear parts (sprockets, chain, bearings, etc.) are standard "off the shelf" parts and are typically available locally which allows for quick repairs.
