Modernize Tire Design, Development and Production with Industry 4.0
The increasingly global tire industry is racing ahead as trends and technology evolve faster than ever before. SKU proliferation, smart tires, larger rim sizes, airless variations and increased mileage forecasts are just a few things you face. That’s why many tire producers are turning to smart manufacturing to help increase production efficiencies amidst all this change.
We can help you develop smarter solutions and scalable flexibility with our tire manufacturing automation and control systems. We make it easy to get the most out of every stage of tire production, from raw material processing and mixing, through final finish and inspection.
Our full-spectrum, connected approach eases integration and standardization across plants and throughout the production lifecycle.
Tire Building, Where Rubber Meets Road
You can create productive, safe, flexible and easy-to-use tire building machines with our Integrated Architecture system. This high-performance system with integrated safety can help you:
- Synchronize machine sections such as wind-up and let-off
- Achieve tension and edge control
- Optimize cut-to-length accuracy, independent of machine speed
- Easily adjust to process changes such as tire dimensions
Tire Curing, and Ready to Roll
Further leveraging our Integrated Architecture system, you can improve equipment utilization and productivity in this critical, capital-intensive process. Get immediate access to process details like trends, alarms, recipe data and energy consumption so you can make more data-driven decisions. And, you can pinpoint the cause of quality issues or production disruptions to help optimize curing processes.
