Central India based OTR retreader Waidhan Engineering & Industries Pvt Ltd (WEI) has further widened its portfolio by retreading the biggest size of OTR casing at its Singruali based site. The Madhya Pradesh retreader recently supplied the first lot of 40.00R57 size retreaded tyres, which are fitted to 240-ton dump trucks.

“The 240 Ton dump truck is the largest vehicle operating in Indian mine sites, and the 40.00R57 size tyre has been retreaded by us for the first time. Actually, the largest size of OTR tyres is also planned to be retreaded at our upcoming new site but orders for this size came earlier, so we decided to take the plunge and delivered it,” informed Harsh Himmatramka, Director, Waidhan Engineering & Industries Pvt Ltd.

The recent installation of an ABC (Automated Build Cell) Robot is claimed to have produced a number of key benefits and efficiencies at Bandvulc’s Ivybridge plant in Devon in the UK.

Head of Hot Retread Production at Bandvulc, Tony Mailling, explains more about how innovation and teamwork has progressed this exciting project: “Prior to the introduction of the ABC robot, the loading and unloading of the tyres onto the building machines was a completely manual process for our operatives. Now, the robot automatically loads the tyres onto the building machine from indexed conveyors, and the state-of-the-art extrusion technology applies the new compound onto the tread and sidewall of the prepared casing before it is cured in the press.
