L&T RPM Unit's Tyre curing presses can be fitted with Vertical Chuck Loaders for handling bias and radial tyres of various sizes. These fully automatic units perform two basic functions:

  • Storing uncured tyres until the press is ready to receive them.
  • Placing uncured tyres on the extended bladders and holding them in position till the bladder is sufficiently inflated to hold the tyre.

The extensive range covers loaders to handle tyres of passenger cars, light trucks, trucks and off -the-road presses
High-accuracy Vertical Chuck Loaders for radial tyres

L&T RPM Unit in-house R&D facility has developed high accuracy vertical chuck loaders for handling radial tyres of passenger cars, light trucks and trucks. These loaders ensure higher accuracy in centering, alignment and concentricity on the mould centre. They are rigid in construction and hence retain the accuracy of the settings over a period of time. Vertical chuck loaders can be supplied along with the presses and also retrofitted onto the presses in service.

Green Tyre Holders

L&T RPM Unit offers a variety of green tyre holders for use with vertical chuck loaders depending upon the tyre technology and customer requirements.
