Identifying materials on the tire building machine

The precut treads are brought to the tire building machine by a material trolley. The material trolley is equipped with an RFID transponder to ensure the traceability of the batch of treads. The RFU620 RFID read/write device on the tire building machine identifies the transponder. The advantages of the rugged transponders lie in their long service life. The large read range of the read/write device means the trolley does not need to be positioned exactly. The RFU620 displays the identification status directly on the device by means of easily visible LEDs on the corners.
