Roughening up rubber-coated rollers and forklift truck tyres

We have found a solution for restoring the rubber on rubber-coated rollers to its optimum state. We succeeded in coming up with an unconventional treatment in which we peel the rubber off a little way, once again creating a straight and rough layer.

Another major challenge was getting rid of the flat spots that you can get on large rubber forklift trucks tyres when they are stationary for too long or have made emergency stops. Tyres with flat spots do not give a smooth ride. Rubber is awkward to process, though, particularly when large areas such as these are involved. Making an auxiliary tool of just the right size lets us make those large tyres nicely circular again.
