Whereas the actual manufacturing process between material procurement, tire construction, and vulcanisation has been developed to the full, there is still large potential for savings in the automation of intralogistics along the production line. Compared to manual processes, automation leads to guaranteed high process quality with a drop in personnel costs. Another advantage accrues through freed-up floor space, which can be used for additional production machinery, for example. Automated processes also ensure the highest levels of transparency and data security.
The solutions range from automatic racking systems for mixed pallets, customer-specific transport racks, racks for green tires, to silo-type goods issue storage. Selection of the components of the system generally depends on the required dynamics and also on the number and type of load units to be used.
