The Nireco Automatic Steel Cord Sensor System uses magnetic fields to accurately detect within +/- 0.2 millimeters the position of the steel cord during the calendering segment of the manufacturing process, Nireco America Corp. said. The system automatically and precisely cuts the gum edge adjacent to the steel cord, eliminating defects like exposed or missing cords, according to the Nireco Corp. unit.
