Sustainability is the megatrend for the several-hundred tyre plants worldwide. Among other activities, this includes increasing both energy and production efficiency by avoiding rejects while simultaneously shortening production cycles.
Sustainability ? already during production
Despite all of the electronic aids, a car today still has only four points of contact with the street, each barely how big is a postcard. Each one of the four tyres is critical for a safe journey, and all of this under the most diverse operating conditions. This explains the extremely high quality requirements that every tyre manufacturer defines for its products.
Sustainability through precise measurement technology
The CPH7000 portable process calibrator
Tyre manufacturers ensure the compliance of their quality requirements through extensive testing of the raw materials, testing after and during the individual production steps, along with through various tests on the finished tyre. Needless to say, the reject rate ought to be minimised and each production step should run sustainably in the long run. Precise and reliable measurement technology is necessary exactly for this.
Pressure measurement and Industry 4.0
Modern machinery and systems, even with comprehensive condition monitoring and IIoT connection, cannot change the truth that tyre production is a rough process. In this environment, sensitive sensors must not only survive, but measure for as long, as accurately and as reliably as you possibly can. For the checking of sensors, switches and pressure gauges, WIKA offers the appropriate calibration instruments. From hand-helds for used in production, through stationary desktop instruments for the quality assurance test room, to custom-built testing systems.
Sustainability doing his thing: Robust measurement technology avoids production downtime
Robust pressure measurement technology: MW and S-20
High-quality measuring instruments make a contribution to sustainability. Their durability prevents rejects in production, plus the subsequent costly downtime, and it reduces the cost of spare parts. Extensive field studies by a ?global player? show significantly longer operating times for WIKA pressure switches and pressure sensors, and thus sustainable savings in maintenance and servicing. In particular, premature failures of pressure switches and pressure sensors on curing presses previously resulted in frequent production line downtimes. That is explained by the particular loads. เกจวัดแรงดัน and temperature changes driven by the shortest possible production cycles, alongside superheated steam and sulphurous atmospheres, stress the measuring instruments and lead to rapid ageing.
Costs of defective measuring instruments
Even today, our customer is surprised he had previously accepted these frequent failures as a technical given ? as unavoidable. In the meantime, WIKA supplies the group?s production facilities worldwide, with WIKA?s global presence guaranteeing both customer contact in the local language and fast delivery.
The WIKA portfolio covers all relevant measured variables necessary for the control and regulation of all tyre machinery ? pressure, temperature, level and flow. You reveal your measuring requirement ? we will provide you with the solution. You could find a lot more application examples in the Industries section on the WIKA website and inside our brochure. Should you have any questions, your contact will gladly help you.
