Segmental Mold

Tread segment

The main mold manufacturing method of Uzer Makina is direct engraving. With the state-of-the-art software and state-of-the-art 5axis CNC Machines, the most convenient method to manufacture tire molds is the direct engraving. This software technology provides us with a seamless transfer of solid model data to CAD System and results in a reasonable reduction in product development cycle. Integration of CAE to system ensures superior product quality. In addition, with this method, in Uzer Makina both aluminum and/or steel material are used for manufacturing of segmental type of molds.

The tire curing molds product range covers, PCR, LVR, LTR, TBR sizes in segmental type of mold construction with either aluminum or steel tread segments; and sidewall plates made of steel; We prepare 3D solid models of tire and tread segments by using high level computer programs for both CAD and CAM design prior to manufacturing molds. Tread segments for winter designs are also manufactured with aluminum casting method.
