Güdel Introduces New Green Tire Trays

Fast, efficient handling of sticky, green tires.

ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN. Güdel introduces its new Green Tire Trays which are designed to eliminate damage during conveyor offload, and yet they allow tires to travel the conveyor at higher speeds compared to other trays. These trays can be installed directly into existing conveyor systems, and they work with all types of systems from roller to wide-belt or narrow-belt.


Remarkably rigid and light, Güdel Green Tire Trays have a load capacity of up to 30 kg with an external diameter of up to 900 mm. Integrated stiffening ribs keep distortion to an absolute minimum, and these injection-molded trays have no impurities. (Even the slightest impurity on conventional conveyor systems can have a negative impact on the quality of tires.)

The tray is tilted at 45° which provides optimum storage with no loss of quality. Tires can be deposited very precisely thanks to positioning accuracy of 1 mm. The trays can be fitted with RFID chips, which enable individual analysis and facilitate data tracking.

In order to make them more noticeable when used in visual identification systems, Güdel's Green Tire Trays are available in any color and empty trays are easily stackable.

Güdel debuts the new Green Tire Trays at Tire Technology Expo, February 10-12, 2015, Cologne, Germany, Hall 11.1, booth 3170.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
