Guyson Corporation has designed and built an automated tire mold cleaning system that features a precision nozzle manipulator with three axes of movement. The custom pressure-blast machine is engineered to quickly and non-destructively clean both two-piece and segmented molds.
The roof-mounted nozzle motion system directs the blast from four pressure nozzles rigidly bracketed in position on the wrist of the programmable manipulator. The horizontal and vertical range of nozzle motion accommodates molds of various diameters and tread widths, while the third axis precisely controls the pitch or angle of impingement of the blast stream to facilitate rapid and thorough cleaning of details of target surfaces.
The system utilizes Guyson exclusive Guyson Metalbead® Media . Guyson Metalbead® is the ultimate media for complex dies and molds because it consists of microscope spheres that can clean in hard to reach areas. Guyson Metalbead® is soft so it resists fracture and will leave molds or dies damage free !
