Direct marking of finished tires - High point marking overview - REA JET ST

High Point Marking on finished tires

Definition of Task

  • Vehicle tires on rims are balanced on the conveyor belt and are marked on both sides with 1 to 2 high-to mark the mounting position of the balance weights
  • In the case of steel rims, the weights are mounted at the height of the high-points; in the case of aluminum rims, the balance weights are glued within the rims base

Special Product Specification

  • Replacement of the obsolete dabbing technology (contact marker) by non-contact ST marking
  • The integration of the REA JET spray mark systems in existing equipment is possible without any problems
  • Passing the spray mark head in a position of optimal distance to the tire surface
  • Using different colors in order to differentiate between the balance weights
  • Improving the cleanness of the equipment and ensuring shorter cleaning times because of the precise application of paint by using the REA JET spray mark technology

REA JET Solution

  • 3x REA JET SR-1 spray mark heads
  • Ink supply unit: 3x 1.5 Liter MDB

Advantages of the REA JET Solution

  • In using the non-contact marking, the spray heads are not getting dirty which ensures the reliable marking of the high-points
  • Clean dot quality by constant application of the material
  • Precise flow of the painting material by marking the tires bottom-up (bottom marking)
  • Cost savings by using the cheaper REA spray mark paints
  • Optimized process by reduction of the equipment failure (less customer complaints for unmarked tires)
  • Due to the non-contact marking, the marking through surface irregularities and indentations on the surface of the tire is possible without any problems
