VULCAN-VULCAP TREADMOLDERS

VULCAN-VULCAP Hydraulic Treadmolders are available in standard sizes or can be custom designed to suit your needs.

  • Available in steam or thermal oil, with fully automatic hydraulic "C" Frame designs for fast heat transfer and uniform temperature.
  • Custom designed Treadmolders can be built up to 36', your choice of Daylights, Platen widths, curing pressures and temperatures to meet your exact needs.
  • Standard Treadmolders can produce lengths of tread from 12 feet to 36 feet with Platen widths from 12 inches (304 mm) to 19 inches (483 mm).
  • The VULCAN-VULCAP Treadmolders are of heavy-duty modular construction to permit molding pressures up to 500 psi on a 14-inch (356 mm) width. Tests have shown the standard rubber pressure of 350 psi/10" (254 mm) is required for molding precure treads. However, optional rubber pressure requirements of 500 psi/14" (equal to 700 psi/10") contact with 19" platen width is readily achieved in the modular design concept with stresses below conventionally allowable values and minimal deflections.
  • VULCAN-VULCAP Treadmolders have a proven reliability record for continuous operation and minimum maintenance.
  • VULCAN-VULCAP Treadmolders modular design utilizes standard industrial components for easy maintenance and cost effective repair.

Features and benefits

  • Fully automatic controls for easy operation.
  • Hydraulically powered load and unload matrix tray system improves productivity.
  • Steam or thermal oil heated platens provide fast heat transfer and uniform rubber temperature.
  • Automatic sequence control optimizes cycle time as low as 15 to 20 minutes and allows multiple shift operation (up to three cure cycles per hour).
  • Automatic bump cycles to expel trapped air.
  • A wide range of matrices for a variety of tread patterns is available.
  • Matrix Tray Power Cylinders are bracket mounted to the Platens to allow power cylinders to travel up and down with the Platen and Matrix Tray.
