Standardization for Tyre Production Machine Automation

Digitalization and Industry 4.0 require a tighter integration of tyre production machines in sense of horizontal, but also vertical integration.Both types of integration generate a lot of benefits for the tyre manufacturer, but add effort to the machine builders and the tyre manufacturer’s maintenance team.

My presentation will show

  • how the usage of preconfigured standard SW blocks can reduce machine builder’s effort and at the same time reduce the variety of SW programming styles to be maintained by the tyre manufacturer.
  • I also will show what functionality is available and how this standard SW blocks interfere with the machine builder’s core knowhow.
