Tyre Moulds – Laser Cleaning

Extending the life of your mould

When it comes to the challenge of cleaning tyre moulds, laser cleaning delivers excellent results – from handheld to fully automated laser cleaning systems. Handheld lasers offer ease of use with the flexibility to quickly clean difficult surfaces, when and where it’s necessary. Fully automated laser systems can clean a wide-range of disassembled mould components including clamshell moulds, mould segments, sidewalls and bead rings with precision, speed, safely and cost-effectively.

Laser cleaning extends mould life. The process removes fouling and residues from sensitive surfaces without the wear caused by abrasive grit blasting or damage from kinetic energy. Moreover, laser cleaning does not force debris into micro-vents (e.g. Thielmann-vents or Euro-vents) and it can be used safely on moulds with spring-type vents.

The special sideWALL optic for semi-automated cleaning of side-walls including engravings removes mould residues within minutes to give tyres a perfect gloss level while it helps prevent mould flash.

The system is laser safe (Class 1) and can easily be mounted by a single person.
