Our products

Product category: Extrusion lines for compounding

High precision extrusion

Precision of the extrusion product is an important requirement in many extrusion applications. VMI’s extruder gear pump systems combine the plasticization of an extruder with the accurate, high pressure volumetric output of a gear pump. You control compound plasticization and output pressure independently to ensure high accuracy and output, while preventing scorching.

Product highlights
 
  • Flexible in a wide variety of applications
  • High accuracy output
  • Reduction of extrusion tolerances
  • Excellent process control
  • Lower scrap rate

VMI is specialized in integrated extruder gear pump systems, where the extruder takes care of plasticizing the rubber compound and feeding the material into the gear pump. The gear pump ensures the accurate and continuous output, also in the case of high output pressures.

Product category: Single screw extruders

Extrusion for strip winding

Extrusion strip winding is important for OTR tire retreading and has also become important for new tire production systems, to build up full rubber tire components by winding a small rubber strip delivered by an extrusion system. Such applications require strip extrusion with very high accuracy and high output pressure. Therefore VMI extrusion systems include a gear pump in conjunction with a single screw extruder.

Product highlights
  • High accuracy and high output pressure
  • Easy integration of systems

Rubber side feeding in TPE/TPV compounding

The VMI Planetruder is very suitable for continuous and accurate feeding of rubber into a TPE/TPV compounding extruder. The planetary gear pump ensures a feeding precision higher than ±0.25%. The single-drive, compact design allows for easy installation and takes up little floor space.

Product highlights
  • Highly accurate rubber side feeding
  • Very exact dosing

Proportional blending and final mixing

VMI Extruder gear pump systems are used for final mixing (iCOM technology) or for proportional blending of rubber compounds. The system provides you a high quality output, while saving costs on equipment investment and on energy use.

Product highlights
  • Expanding capacity, increasing quality
  • Lower use of energy
  • Saving on storage and transportation times
  • Fine mesh high pressure straining

RETRAX

VMI developed the RETRAX retreading system to answer to our customers’ needs of the present and the future. The RETRAX employs the renowned cushion gum extrusion-smearing technology. This technology is used by a majority of bus- and truck tire retreaders in the USA and Europe.

Product highlights
  • Uniform filling by extrusion-smearing technology
  • Save cushion gum costs by using single size feed strip
  • Lower labor costs through automatic skive filling
