Earthmover Tires: After Design, then What? 680247

ABSTRACT

After design, all of the desired elements of an earthmover tire must be translated first to a molded shape and then to a simplified shape for the building operation. These translations must have optimum values to produce a final quality tire with the required performance characteristics. Due to the huge size and weight of earthmover tires, special equipment and techniques have been developed to manufacture them with uniformity comparable to smaller tires. Modern quality control practices during the manufacturing steps of material preparation, tire building, shaping, curing and finishing then insure conformance to specification.
