The Johnsford VMC is utilized to do light milling, as well as 4/5-axis simultaneous engraving on sidewall sections
of tire molds.
The fully automated front-end of the TCS-1 processes up to five tires per minute, separating the tread from the potentially more valuable sidewall sections
, cutting them into one-foot segments, and feeding them into the freezing chamber which produces a compressed stream of air cooled to 240 degrees below zero (Fahrenheit).
The TCS-1 has been designed to be a fully automated, turn-key scrap tire recycling plant, which incorporates a front-end tire preparation module capable of processing up to five tires per minute (separating the tread from the potentially more valuable sidewall sections
and cutting the separated tire sections into one-foot segments).
