Increasing tire codes demand flexibility in your manufacturing

STEELASTIC® Truck / Bus Radial (TBR) Tire Systems

Steelastic Truck/Bus Radial Tire Systems

Commercial truck and bus radial (TBR) tire manufacturing plants are evolving, as the market shifts to lighter, more fuel-efficient tires. Steetlastic TBR systems provide the flexibility to produce tire reinforcement components that meet your cord and gauge requirements.

Our extrusion-based, calenderless systems for truck and bus tire equipment produce steel belt, body ply and cap strip with very thin, consistent gauges. Unlike the traditional calendering process, our precise cord placement prevents gaps and overlaps in your steel belt.

Our TBR material systems are highly automated, reducing operator dependence and labor costs at your manufacturing facility. Our standalone and combination systems require less material handling and production downtime, allowing you to run multiple product codes with faster changeovers.
