Tire manufacturing bandsaw.
The Model GV1NE bandsaw is said to provide tire manufacturers with the capability to cut out sections of finished product for quality control inspection. The variable speed (1,000-6,000 fpm) and special carbide grit blades enable both rubber and steel belted materials to be cut accurately and economically, according to the manufacturer. Available in three models with 30", 36" and 84" throats and under guide capacity from 16" through 72", the GVINE can handle not only passenger tires, but light truck and heavy offroad vehicle tires as well. A hydraulic powered table (0[degree]--30[degrees]) tilts back to front to raise tires so that the cut starts at the top corner of the tread rather than across the whole face for a straighter cut. Standard features include a heavy duty arc welded steel frame, an automatic electric two wheel brake, a 38 gallon recirculating coolant tank with chip collector and filter screen, dual coolant nozzles to flood both the top and inside the tire for added safety and NEMA 12 electrical controls.
