To overcome big challenges – globalization, consolidation, changing global standards, stricter government regulations and heightened consumer demand for greater performance at a lower price – means finding solutions that span the tire design, development and production processes so you can produce tires more efficiently while consuming less energy and reducing waste.
With more than 100 years of experience supporting major global tire manufacturers and machine builders, Rockwell Automation can help you utilize assets – across the street or around the world – more effectively and efficiently to compete in this constantly changing industry.
A full-spectrum approach provides easier integration and standardization across plants and throughout the life cycle of the tire-production process. These solutions enable you and your suppliers to adhere to safety and regulatory requirements, as well as integrate efficiencies that improve productivity and quality, and reduce total cost of ownership.
The Connected Enterprise
Rockwell Automation information solutions enable manufacturers to connect manufacturing operations across multiple plants and global business systems. The result? Better decision making, effective process analysis and optimization, and exposing unique competitive opportunities. In addition, Rockwell Automation helps tire manufacturers, OEMs and the supply chain to integrate information for improved asset utilization across the enterprise.
The Rockwell Automation global service and support network includes tire industry experts who can implement your capital and operational projects with low-risk, high-reward outcomes. Rockwell Automation provides cradle-to-grave services for tire manufacturers located around the world, with local sales and distribution channels to expedite and facilitate the delivery of products.
Integrated Architecture provides a single integrated production, control and information system, enabling faster decision making to improve responsiveness and quality, increase productivity and reduce costs. Plants can utilize multiple control and information systems, resulting in extremely complex decision making using real-time production data. More precise extruder control gives manufacturers better quality, while curing press control solutions can help meet regulatory requirements with diagnostics, track-and-trace, and recipe management.
