There are a multitude of reasons why it makes strategic sense to consider Chromaffix implementation to your workflow process. Here are a few key benefits realized by the top global tire manufactures that are already utilizing Chromaffix:
1. SPEED: You require an automated labeler that keeps pace with production
Less than 2 second cycle time ensures you can easily meet and manage high throughput speeds on your existing lines. Furthermore, the capital investment pays for itself quicker when you might even require fewer units to accomplish your labeling needs.
2. COMPACT: You require a tread labeling system that’s physically suited to meet space requirements
Chromaffix’s modest footprint requires less space for installation offering flexibility in how and where the unit is installed on the existing conveyor in order to maximize valuable real estate in your facility
3. SIMPLICITY: You require a system that is easy to commission and maintain
Few moving parts ensure greater ease of use & performance reliability, in addition to a reduction in potential system downtime. The simplistic design means there are fewer parts to fail, the cost of total ownership is reduced, and the label position accuracy on the tire is consistent.
4. RELIABILITY: You require an automated labeling system that ensures uptime
Engineered to perform in industrial environments, Chromaffix was designed with a protective shell to ensure machine hygiene; ultimately enabling less cleaning, maintenance, and upkeep over the life of the system. The simplistic design also ensures the unit remains reliably operating.
5. SAFETY: You require a system that ensures safety and reduces concern for liability
Chromaffix’s ergonomic design, coupled with fewer moving parts and a totally enclosed system ensures safety and ease of use for production line operators
6. COMMUNICATION: You need an automated tread labeler that talks to existing infrastructure
Boosting intelligent media, tension, and environmental controls, Chromaffix provides high efficiency, easy changeovers, and improved label application quality. In addition, integration with existing systems means a common host and one solid server platform
7. SERVICE: You need a labeling system that’s backed by world-class service and support
With a service offering equally as robust as the technical bits of the unit itself, the sturdiest of service comes standard with all Chromaffix installations:
How Chromaffix works...
The bead label of each tire is scanned at the in-gate stage, followed by automatic height adjustment, and a justifying arm that moves the tire into place for the applicator arm. A tread label is then printed and automatically and consistently applied to each individual tire. At the out-gate stage, the bead label scanner and tread label scanner offer a checkpoint to ensure data accuracy.
