Skiver Upgrade Kits
- OEM Engineered Enhancements
- Reduces Maintenance and Downtime
- Extends the Life of Legacy Equipment
- Increases Production and Quality
Spadone’s Tread Skivers have remained a fixture in tire manufacturing plants around the world. We offer several simple conversions and rebuilds that improve performance and reduce maintenance, as well as machine add-ons that will improve productivity and efficiency. Contact us with the serial number of the machine to see if your Spadone machine can benefit from the upgrade kits or factory rebuilds listed below.
S1 – Conveyor Roller Kit
The kit consists of rollers with anti-friction sealed bearings which allow the conveyor rolls to turn freely with the belt and prevent flattening of the rollers.
S2 – Knife Motor Brake Safety Kit
Replaces the knife brake fuse with a single pole relay where the contact is wired into the knife circuit to prevent operation of the knife if the brake fails.
S3 – New Clutch and Linings Kit
Two new modified clutches and linings make the clutches more efficient and accurate by reducing engagement time. In addition, the new clutches do not need to be greased, eliminating the problem of grease contaminating the linings. The kit also includes an air regulator to enable the operator to set and maintain the proper clutch air pressure.
S4 – Longitudinal Carriage Cylinder and Rod Kit
New Longitudinal return cylinder rod is stainless steel to prevent corrosion and is provided with an alignment coupling. Cylinder is also provided with an enlarged intake and exhaust port pressure regulator. This optimizes the control and allows for a rapid exhaust of the air when clutches are engaged.
S5 – Quadrature Encoder Kit
Improves accuracy of the machine. Negates the affect of vibration, belt elasticity and negative rotation of the encoder shaft.
S6 – Cross Carriage Corner Safety Guards
A safety guard kit that covers pinch points on the cross cut carriage.
S7 – Solenoid Valve Kit for Clutches/Longitudinal Carriage Cylinder
Kit that replaces original pneumatic control with individual 24vdc solenoid valves, one for each clutch and the carriage return cylinder. Valves would be located close to each device and equally away to balance and optimize. Includes all necessary components for conversion.
S8 – Synthetic Belt Kit
Replaces Hot Stock and Water belt. Poly laminated belt does not stretch and tracks better. Must be hot-spliced upon assembly on site.
S9 – Reinforce Outfeed Frame Kit
Frame reinforcement near the clutch mounting areas. Stiffens up the assembly to help reduce variance.
S10 – Head and Tail Pulley Kit
New head and tail pulleys with Trans-Torque Locking Bushings. Pulleys have low run-out specifications to improve belt tracking and accuracy.
S11 – Blade Guard and Fine Spray Kit
Upgraded blade guard makes knife changing easier and has improved spray nozzles for more effective cooling of the blade during the cut.
S12 – Cluster Roll Kit
Replaces the high maintenance belt rollers near the stock support bar. Rollers and shaft are integral and mounted in corrosion resistant flange bearings.
S13 – Cross Cut Carriage/Knife Lift Frame Modification
Adds wear pads to the knife carriage assembly and modifies the knife lift frame to accept the wear pads. The wear plates can then be replaced at regular maintenance intervals. Also a new knife motor pivot is provided that has a hardened steel sleeve bushing which prevents elongation of the pivot hole. A new knife lift frame, hardened bushings and needle bearings are provided. Requires some machining and assembly by customer.
S14 – Outfeed Frame Assembly Kit (Incorporates kits mentioned)
Incorporates a new outfeed assembly with larger shaft size and bearings for the head and sprocket pulleys. Requires installation and reconnection on-site.
