Our award-winning software solution gives access to all possible data related to tire manufacturing and we believe that nobody else has provided analytics for the tire industry on this scale.Jyrki Anttonen, Cimcorp’s Technology Director
Software connecting all as one entity
The Cimcorp solution connects levels from programmable logic controller (PLC) to enterprise resource planning (ERP), providing seamless and easy accessibility to meaningful information that enables tire factories to optimize operations.
“Tire manufacturers are increasingly investing in smart factories to future-proof their operations,” explains Veli-Matti Hakala, Director, Tire Industry Sales at Cimcorp.
“Automation is the key to success for tire factories; it makes it possible to increase output while also ensuring sustainability and building resilience.”
Software recognized by a global automation award
The Journey to Automation (J2A) Awards recognize leading players in the field of automation and digital transformation of the tire industry. Cimcorp won the Tire Manufacture – Suppliers Award in 2020 for ‘Improving the Data Analytics of the Tire Factory’.
The J2A judging panel stated, “This is an automation route that can significantly improve the efficiency and output of tire plants. Cimcorp has developed a tire production dashboard, and is leveraging data from different sources to improve the complete flow of tire manufacturing from material handling to finished goods. This is already in use internationally.”
Customizable to achieve the best solution
Although it is an end-to-end automation solution for tire plants, Cimcorp Dream Factory is modular in design and can be implemented in stages, if required. An ideal area to begin with automation is warehousing and dispatch. Efficiency can be significantly increased by investing in a fully automated process from finished tire palletizing to shipping. An automated high-bay warehouse provides great storage density for better space utilization, integrated with Cimcorp software to secure the dispatch process.
