This passenger and light truck tire debeader built by Wolverine is the answer for a company that needs to debead their car/passenger tires. Tires are loaded onto a belt, and the machine takes care of the rest. Both beads are removed at the same time, pulling them through hardened steel die plates to strip most of the surrounding rubber. The tire is counted as it is discharged on to a conveyor, and the bead wires drop on to a belt conveyor for removal. The system adjusts for uneven or reduced tire flow, and different size auto and light truck tires (145R 12 to 265/75R16 and most 17’s) may be loaded interchangeably. The cyclic rate is up to 500 tires per hour.
