Sustainability may be the megatrend for the several-hundred tyre plants worldwide. Among other activities, this consists of increasing both energy and production efficiency by avoiding rejects while simultaneously shortening production cycles.

Despite all of the electronic aids, a car today still has only four points of connection with the street, each barely the size of a postcard. Each one of the four tyres is critical for a safe journey, and all this beneath the most diverse operating conditions. This explains the extremely top quality requirements that every tyre manufacturer defines because of 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 during and after the average person production steps, and also through various tests on the finished tyre. Of course, the reject rate ought to be minimised and each production step should run sustainably in the long run. Precise and reliable measurement technology is required exactly for this.
Pressure measurement and Industry 4.0
Modern machinery and systems, even with comprehensive condition monitoring and IIoT connection, cannot change the fact that tyre production is really a rough process. In this environment, sensitive sensors should never 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 use in production, through stationary desktop instruments for the product 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 tests 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 very particular loads. Rapid pressure and temperature changes driven by the shortest possible production cycles, alongside superheated steam and sulphurous atmospheres, stress the measuring instruments and result in rapid ageing.
Costs of defective measuring instruments
Right now, our customer is surprised that he had previously accepted these frequent failures as a technical given ? as unavoidable. For the time being, 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 required for the control and regulation of all tyre machinery ? pressure, temperature, level and flow. You reveal your measuring requirement ? ไดอะแฟรม ซีล shall offer the solution. You can find many more application examples in the Industries section on the WIKA website and in our brochure.
