About the Conference
The recent challenges for the tire manufacturers that were introduced with a rapid spread of COVID-19 on tire production can hardly be overestimated since companies were forced to close their production facilities in different parts of the world in order to ensure the safety of the employees. This poses an important question of how can the tire manufacturers minimize the impact of the absence of a fully staffed plant.
Apart from that, the rapid technologic development makes it challenging for tire manufacturing companies to keep pace with the times of innovations, digitalisation, and automation. This results in the fact that a great number of machines are becoming obsolete which affects the efficiency of tire production and the competitiveness of the manufacturing company. Last but not least, tire curing and building processes require high energy consumption, therefore, the issues of reaching sustainability levels during tire production appear.
The 4th Edition Innovative Curing and Tire Building Forum – Americas presents a great opportunity for participants to hear the discussion of American experts on recent innovations that were introduced within curing and tire building. This forum is a great opportunity for the participants to learn more about technological development that is currently happening in the industry of curing and tire building. It will also explain which strategies manufacturers should implement in order to stand ahead of their competition with regard to Industry 4.0 technologies.
