It’s a crippling problem. Around the world, tire production plants have seen KPIs like OEE, machine uptime and reliability worsen in recent years. Unplanned downtime also has been disrupting production and hurting the bottom line for tire makers.
The problem? Corrosion. Specifically, atmospheric contaminants generated in the tire-making process are combining with temperature and humidity to cause corrosion on the electronic components found in industrial control products. These contaminants aren’t new. But they are having a bigger impact on modern control systems. This is why it’s critical that the steps you take and solutions you use to combat corrosion in your plants be based on an understanding of the unique factors that contribute to corrosion in tire environments.
Rockwell Automation invested years and significant resources to research corrosion-related component failures in tire environments. Join us for this must attend event and learn how we worked with some of the world’s largest tire brands to identify and understand corrosion problems in their plants. Understand how we measured and analyzed environments in plants globally to identify the cause of corrosion and how we performed industry-standard accelerated corrosion testing on industrial control products made by us and our competitors.
Attend this event and hear about how we’ve developed installation guidance, hardened industrial control solutions and a first-of-its-kind corrosion test protocol representative of tire and rubber environments — all to help you improve uptime and stay productive.
