Title: TYRE LOADER ASSEMBLY
Abstract:
A tyre loader assembly (10) for loading 'green tyres' into the mould of a tyre curing press consists of an annular support frame (12) and a number of paddles (14) depending from the support frame for gripping the bead of the uncured tyre. The assembly includes a drive mechanism (16) and gear arrangement (20) that are arranged to pivot or swing the paddles (14) in a horizontal swinging motion to engage or release the bead of the tyre. The loader is adjustable to accommodate conventional tyres of all sizes and most of the important moving parts are housed within the support frame to reduce the risk of failure and damage to the tyre press.
