Tires Automated storage solutions for the tire industry
Whereas the manufacturing process between material procurement, tire construction and, vulcanization has been largely exhausted, there is still great potential for savings in the automation of intralogistics along the production line.
In the industrial production of vehicle tires, manufacturers are faced with different challenges:
- Managing multiple processes at different speeds
- Increasing individualization in tire selection which leads to decreasing batch sizes
- Requiring significant manual labor and large space requirements in the shipping area
