Sometimes one constant slide isn’t enough to follow the tyre profile with the same stud protrusion on every sector. Some newly designs have shown different types of curvatures on the tyre shoulder vs. the middle part of the tyre:
Then it’s possible to make a variable radius slide for the studding machine by optimizing the tyre curvature to the slide profile. We have made many custom slides for different tyre types, so if there is a need for special slide; contact us: Tel. +358 9 7733 200 or sales(a)a-tekniikka.fi and we surely can help!
