Car Tyre Sidewall Cutter

Due to the success of the Truck Tyre Sidewall Cutter, the Car Tyre Sidewall Cutter was developed in order to meet the needs of businesses that are dealing with a surplus of smaller waste tyres. 

The Gradeall Car Tyre Sidewall Cutter builds upon our previous experience gathered from the previous sidewall cutter model. It is a smaller machine that is designed to deal with end-of-life car tyres and passenger-type vehicle tyres.

This allows businesses with a surplus of small tyres to effectively manage them on-site, and enhance their tyre waste disposal process. Car tyres still contain a strong wire bead in the sidewall which can cause expedited wear and tear to shredders. 

Using the Gradeall Car Tyre Sidewall Cutter is the ideal first step in car tyre recycling operations.

How to cut a tyre with the Tyre Sidewall Cutter? 

The tyre sidewall cutter is a relatively simple piece of machinery to use. It has been specifically designed to be operated by just one user, with a foot pedal mechanism to begin the cut cycle. 

The operator will simply load a car tyre onto the side of the machine, where the hands-free mechanism will begin to separate the sidewall from the main body of the tyre. The machine uses a motor-driven cutting blade and a pneumatic clamping arm for optimal performance. 

The car tyre sidewall cutter can be easily integrated into your own operation. 

It can be transported around your site with a forklift, allowing you to manoeuvre it to your ideal location. It is a small machine, but with a big performance. 

Safe to use tyre cutting machine 

We have designed the sidewall cutter with heightened safety features for the operator using it – from the hands-free mechanism to the foot-operated pedal, it can enhance the productivity of your workforce, whilst still providing a safe method for streamlining your tyre disposal process.

Why cut the sidewall of tyres? 

A tyre sidewall cutter machine provides many benefits in streamlining the recycling process of waste tyres. It is considered to be the first step in recycling tyres and provides an efficient method for businesses that are dealing with end-of-life car tyres. 

A tyre sidewall cutter will provide your business with the following benefits: 

Protects the tyre shredder

Tyre sidewalls have a metal beading on the inside, made up of brass, steel wire and copper. This beading prevents the tyre from sliding out when in movement, but for recycling purposes, it needs to be removed. 

Separating the sidewall from the tyre will ensure that the tyre shredder blade is protected, preventing it from expedited damage when it is shredding tough materials such as steel wire, brass or copper. 

Makes for more compact bales 

Removing the sidewall from a tyre will also make for more compact bales, allowing businesses to compress more tyres and make use of their on-site baler. The remaining sidewalls can also be baled, resulting in a more efficient car tyre recycling process. 

An improved baling system will also benefit your business by reducing transportation and labour costs. If more bales are able to be loaded onto the backs of trucks or carriers, then it will make the process a lot more efficient, meaning fewer journeys are required to bring the waste tyres to recycling centres. 

Environmental impact of shredding tyres

There is an increasing expectation for businesses to have a duty of care when it comes to managing their environmental impact. With a tyre sidewall cutter, you can enhance the recycling efforts of your operation. 

There are many uses for reusing and recycling rubber tyres; the agriculture sector can use the separated sidewalls for managing their silage bunkers and piles. It can also be repurposed and made into pencil cases, playground crumbing, carpet underlining, road surfacing, and for building construction. 

Increasingly more and more innovative uses are being sought for reusing waste tyres. In the U.K. nearly 100% of tyres are repurposed in some way, and your business can do its part by sorting tyre material with the tyre sidewall cutter.
