Advanced tyre assembly machines from Marangoni
Marangoni, world’s leading tyre building machinery makers, has recently developed the improved first stage tyre assembly unit for farm radial and the lower range of OTR tyres (25” – 35”) with special turn up and turn-down means.
The Italian company also developed the second stage machine in modular configuration, enabling the output growth in the time according to the tyre production needs.
Another new from Marangoni has been the last-generation special drum for first stage tyre assembly of large radial tyres with the capability to expand radially and axially to recipe.
New partners in Turkey
As part of its global expansion plans, Marangoni Retreading Systems welcomed two new Turkish dealers and retreaders in its family – Basoglu and Dirkap. They are two leading companies operating successfully in the Turkish market.
The retreader Basoglu is based in Devrek/Zonguldak, in the northern Turkey and, thanks to a good supply of premium new tyres, a professional service through dedicated vans, and – of course – premium retreaded tyres, it is able to serve big and modern fleets. Recently, through the product RINGTREAD Blackline, Basoglu has been successfully supplying important international long haulage fleets.
Dirkap is based in the Capadocia Region (central Turkey) where, thanks to the high level of quality of its retreaded tyres, it is a key supplier for those fleets seeking reliable and high-performing retreads in order to effectively cut down the total cost of ownership of their operations.
MoU with Onyx
Marangoni Group and Onyx Group, through its subsidiary Ceylon Steel Corporation (CSCL), have signed a binding Memorandum of Understanding on Industrial Tyres.
This is a further step in the strategy of Onyx Group to invest in the tyre sector, with the objective of becoming the largest tyre manufactures in Sri Lanka and serving both local and international markets, the company said.
