FLEXX® Belt Maker
Endless possibilities with just one machine
Ultra-high quality belt making by extrusion – all in one step with just one VMI machine. The compact VMI FLEXX Belt Maker incorporates steel cord and extruded rubber compound into endless belt on spools – ready for use in the tire building machine. “Just in time”, so you reduce intermediate storage and avoid aging stock material.
We integrated key technological breakthroughs, including:
- VMI’s advanced gear pump extrusion technology
- Servo controlled placement conveyor
- Contactless tungsten carbide knives for accurate cutting
- VMI Vision system to check the splice quality
This results in unparalleled splice precision, stable and accurate reinforced strips, a high level of control and flexibility – and time and cost savings. The FLEXX Belt Maker is the optimal way to increase belt production capacity in small, or more economical increments.
