Eagle International's Punch Cutter II helps recycling OTR tires
Eagle International – a renowned manufacturer of tire cutting and tire recycling equipment – reports that its Punch Cutter II has become a well-established machine for cutting (off-the-road) OTR tires into usable segments.
The patented Eagle Punch Cutter II is portable and designed to split OTR tires into two halves, cutting through the center of the tread. The cutting machine can handle a range of tire sizes from a rim size of 39 inches and a tread width of 37 inches up to, and including, rim size of 63 inches and tread width of 70 inches. A blade is used to punch the tire while a programmable logic controller (PLC) controls the rotation of the tire and the punching process, allowing the operator to set the machine, press the start button, and let it run.
The manufacturer pinpoints that the machine has:
- Four hydraulic powered bed rollers
- Automated radio remote control
- Heat treated alloy punch blade
- Hydraulically adjustable tire cage
- PLC automatically turns the tire and punches
- Electric or diesel power option
