Ala, Italy – Tyre Retreading Machinery (TRM), part of Marangoni Meccanica SpA, has developed a new line of automated retreading equipment for the US market, the Italian machinery supplier announced 29 Jan.
The new line, named “Latitude”, is built around a robotic buffing machine that is designed to minimise process time, reduce labour and increase consistency in texture.
TRM has also signed an agreement with Louisville, Kentucky-based Shamrock Marketing, Inc. to market the machinery.
The equipment line will be officially launched in March during the MidAmerican-Truck-Show in Louisville, Kentucky.
The goal is to bring automation to the retreading process and “offer a complete alternative to the market in the US,” said Alessandro Villa, general manager of TRM.
