Dream Factory is a turnkey solution with sophisticated software and automation combination. With Cimcorp’s software you will manage the plant’s millions of data points integrating each management level from PLC to ERP as one entity. You can select a totally new end-to-end automated tire plant, from raw materials to shipping area. For operative factories you can select certain areas, smaller modules or equipments for green tire or finished tire automation.
Our tire plant solution ensures maximum output, traceability and flexibility in production. Along with real-time quality control, Dream Factory focuses on achieving maximum productivity in any area to make all systems work seamlessly together.
Greenfields are made of dreams
The Cimcorp Dream Factory is a fully automated, end-to-end handling solution for optimizing material and data flows in tire factories. This includes automation and all needed equipment in all areas of tire plant.
With full modularity and scalability, the system provides unlimited possibilities starting from raw material area receipt management, including green tire and finished tire areas all the way to shipping and fully automating the order management. From Cimcorp, you will get all that your new tire plant needs.
Find new efficiencies within the four walls of your plant by achieving higher utilization from your existing production equipment.
We automate individual production areas block by block and offer equipments to them which builds resilience and reduces vulnerability.
Simplified through intelligence
The success of Dream Factory is based on the intelligent software that drives it, developed for the tire sector by Cimcorp.
Gain total control of recipe management and real-time data for production, inventory, and order management.
Fit for greenfield and brownfield plants
The system includes solutions for each manufacturing and distribution process that can be installed in existing plants as a full, one-time deployment or independently through a phased implementation.
For new facilities, automation can be built gradually through our unique, modular concept, which installs one line at a time—resulting in faster ROI.
We think highly of Cimcorp’s software, which integrates the machines into one entity and keeps the flow of material and data under complete control.
After I had seen the efficiency increase in Qingdao, I immediately decided to use Cimcorp equipment in Thailand.
As Cimcorp is considered a pioneer in the area of intralogistics automation, it was natural to want to have them as our partner.
Our key principles are: do it right first time, do it as quickly as possible and do it as cost-effectively as possible.
With this being a greenfield site, we had the opportunity to design the most efficient factory from scratch. This is why we have chosen robotic automation from Cimcorp; we wanted the best logistics technology currently available for our new plant.
Continuous trends – Big data, Internet of things and software
Video interview by Tire Technology Expo 2022
Veli-Matti Hakala, Director, Tire industry Sales, Cimcorp Group
No one knows what the next big thing in the tire industry will be, which is why it’s so important to build agile and flexible solutions that can adapt to new trends.
But regardless of the uncertainty of future trends, software will continue to be a key part of the best automation solutions, as it allows for more streamlined and efficient manufacturing processes.
And you shouldn’t discount the importance of factors like space-efficient layout design, which plays a big part in lowering costs.Veli-Matti Hakala Director, Tire industry Sales at Cimcorp
Improving data analytics of the tire factory
Cimcorp has developed a tire production dashboard and it’s leveraging data from different sources to improve the complete flow in tire manufacturing from the material handling to the finished goods. This is already in use internationally.
Benefits provided with Cimcorp tire plant solution
Straightforward and built step-by-step, so you can add new lines to increase plant capacity
Our space-efficient layout uses up to 50% less space, which means significant savings in building and land costs.
Our optimized solution takes care of the complete intralogistics, while the interface covers PLCs, robot controllers and the host system.
We minimize maintenance interruptions by using fewer electro-mechanical components.
If part of the production line isn’t working, production finds different routes instead of stopping.
Our solution is faster to install and simple to operate, which delivers high productivity right from the beginning.
From a longer lifecycle to reduced energy consumption, we’ve taken eco-friendliness into account.
Our solution can handle both volume shipping and sequenced tire sets per vehicle.
