How Chromaffix Works...
The bead label of each tyre is scanned at the in-gate stage, followed by automatic height adjustment and a justifying arm that moves the tyre into place for the applicator arm. A tread label is then printed, and automatically and consistently applied to each individual tyre. At the out-gate stage, the bead label scanner and tread label scanner offer a checkpoint to ensure data accuracy.
