Manufacturing tires involves mixing together various types of rubber with special properties. The first step in the process is to lift raw rubber bales onto a conveyor belt and position them. The raw materials are then worked into a mixture.

The heavy raw rubber bales are stored separately in boxes and on pallets, making them extremely strenuous to lift. The tube lifter JumboFlex assists employees in this task. With the tube lifter, employees can effortlessly lift raw rubber bales of up to 50 kg from the pallet and place them in the positioner. This ergonomic solution protects the employees’ health while allowing them to work more productively.
