Review of Tire Technology Expo 2020
Last week, Uzer Makina attended to Tire Technology Expo, one of the most important events in the tire industry which is held every year in Hannover, Germany. Uzer Makina was shortlisted again for Tire Industry Supplier of the year category in Tire Technology International Awards 2020 after the last years’ nomination.
Uzer Makina showcased the brand-new high contrast texturing technology on sidewall plates with laser engraved sidewall plate and tire cured in it. This technology makes the markings on sidewall with very high contrast values so that the markings can be seen more sharply compared to traditional markings.
Secondly, digital twin of new Cross Placed Floating Column Hydraulic press was demonstrated in the virtual reality which is developed jointly with Rockwell Automation. Digital twin application enables the curing presses working in the virtual environment before it is assembled and commissioned in real life, therefore it decreases the probability of making mistakes on the real machine. At the same time, it is also beneficial for new operator trainings since operators can experience all the probable scenarios in the virtual reality before interacting with the real machine.
