The AcuTread® Process is the precision remanufacturing of a new tread to a worn tire casing. The highly advanced system, is the predominant method of retreading in Europe and Japan by leading new tire manufacturers. It is becoming widely used by many well-known trucking companies and new tire manufacturers in the United States.
The key to quality in a production operation is keeping up with the latest equipment, continuous training programs and quality technicians. The clean, modern manufacturing environment and advanced training programs foster a culture of quality that makes the AcuTread® Process extremely successful, cost effective and conducive to attracting and retaining quality, long-term employees.
1. Professional Inspection
Trained AcuTread® Inspection Technicians look for specific tire conditions that either qualify or disqualify the casings. The casing is checked for micro-porosity and injuries; when detected, they are repaired using a 2-piece cured repair system.
2. Computerized Buffing
AcuTread® Computerized Buffing is programmed to a specific radius, contour and diameter for each size and type of casing. The accuracy and precision of this machine provides a tolerance within 1/32” in diameter. This results in one of the most uniform and consistent finished products on the market today.
3. Precision Rubber Application
AcuTread® Precision Rubber Application uses a state-of-the-art computer controlled extruder that applies in a continuous splice-free strip. Matched tire diameters give you the benefit of even loading, smooth ride, even wear, lower cost per mile and improved fuel efficiency.
4. Tread Molding and Curing
AcuTread® Tread Molding and Curing Technology uses segmented curing presses with three heating zones to ensure minimal heat exposure to the casings while in process. AcuTread® Molding uses high internal air pressure which results in superior adhesion values.
5. Tracking and Reporting
AcuTread® Technology uses a computerized bar coding system to facilitate easy tracking and reporting for our customers. This technology gives our clients the peace of mind in knowing their same tires will always be given back to them.
