Epe, the Netherlands - Tire machinery maker VMI Group will present its new Flexx belt maker at the forthcoming Tire Technology Expo in Cologne, Germany.
The machine uses an extrusion process rather than calendaring to produce belts for tires, including ultra-high-performance products, in a â€œflexible and cost effective way,â€ the Dutch company said in a statement.
VMI said it has overcome the limitations of traditional extrusion-based systems and its technology has been tested in a number of 'in-line' car tire belt making systems and 'off-line' OTR tire component lines.
Tire Technology Expo will be held 5-7 February in Cologne, Germany.
