Tire curing and tire building processes account for the largest percentage of energy consumption at the tire production plants. The machines have a large footprint, overall high costs and remain the largest capital investments for tire companies. Most of the currently used machines are decades old, affecting the tire production and the competitiveness of companies. The industry is in an urgent need for innovation in every aspect of both tire curing and tire building processes.
The 2nd Annual Innovative Curing and Tire Building Forum brings together industry leaders to present and discuss on the latest innovations and developments of the two most challenging sections of curing and tire building. The forum discovers and displays the best insights from the latest researches from around the globe. It stands as a networking platform for curing and tire building machine producers, end-users and solution providers to come together and communicate effectively.
- Among the key challenges discussed will be:
- Evolution of production plants
- Increasing automation
- Achieving curing cycle efficiency
- Monitoring technology
- RFID solutions and endurance
- Efficient energy usage and maintenance
- Waste reduction
