Rubber products manufacturers
For over 50 years Roncaglia® is engaged in manufacturing rubber products for use in military vehicles. The new wheels are used stickers and it removes the worn rubber material and re-glue ensuring the same durability in both cases. Caterpillars are also made of metal and half-tracks and rubber pads for steel tracks. In the laboratory has developed rubber compounds highly tear resistant and abrasion to which they are subjected military vehicles. Roncaglia® has been involved since its inception in the manufacture of wheels for the historic Sherman, the AMX 13, AMX 15,SK 105, TAM and Halftrack Diamont T and M 113. This facilitates the fabrication of pieces by its age or modifications made and not on the market.
On the market are in use pads made for more than 30 years and the rubber compound has not undergone aging, since they are highly resistant to ozone, ultraviolet radiation, tear and abrasion, and has been used in the field for which were not intended
Roncaglia® manufactures more than 50 years of rubber products, rubber and metal for military vehicles. So - among other developments - built for years tracked vehicles for semi-caterpillar Diamond T, and disabled the service today in the Argentine Army. Caterpillars far exceeded expectations and who underwent exceptional efforts to be used in mountainous areas with floor slabs detached from the mountain that tested high tear strength required. Currently made to order to supply current owners and collectors of these historic vehicles. Also it is dedicated to the task of providing the bogie tracks and wheel to Latin American countries that keep such vehicles in operation.
The most important steel manufacture argentine company has employed the RONCAGLIA® SLEEVE for steel sheets coils winder and de-winder mandrels, since more than 30 years in his five plants.
The use of this rubber sleeve, allows:
1-to protect the steel sheet, the defects caused by the metallic mandrel, on the first loops. When a metallic mandrel is opened against the thin metallic sheets, usually a typical mark has been place, on the first loops, these loops have been rejected.
2-to replace metallic supplements for different I.D. coils. When it is necessary to produce coils with different internal diameters, the use of Roncaglia® rubber sleeve, instead of such heavy’s metallic supplements, assures faster and safer installation.
3-to protect mechanical mandrel systems. When you use Roncaglia® rubber sleeve, you have an additional advantage; you are protecting the mandrel mechanisms from dust, which can affect the normal operation.
