  • Patent number: 5141033
    Abstract: Rubberless tire bead assemblies are disclosed, containing either a single wire element or multiple wire elements wound about an axis to provide a plurality of convolutions of the single wire or multiple wire elements to provide the bead hoop and shape-retaining members engaging the bead hoop about the circumference of the bead hoop to retain the bead assembly in a planar configuration. Rubber tire bead assemblies having wire termination ends positioned internally or externally with respect to the bead assembly and methods of making these bead assemblies are disclosed.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: October 11, 1990
    Date of Patent: August 25, 1992

  • Patent number: 4681558
    Abstract: A reinforced belt assembly or construction which utilizes a reinforcing material comprised of a reinforcing member portion possessing a high Young's modulus discontinuous throughout the length of the reinforcing material and a carrier member portion extending the length of the reinforcing material. The carrier member portion facilitates transport and winding of the reinforcing material about a forming mandel during manufacture and facilitates cutting of the belt assembly from the cured reinforced sleeve material such that the high Young's modulus member does not emerge from the cut sidewalls of the belt assembly.
