What drives you also drives our solutions. Tire production is increasingly challenging: the need to reduce costs and increase supply chain resilience in the face of SKU proliferation and sustainability demands is a major headache for tire plant executives. The fact is that optimization of your material flows and inventory levels has never been more imperative. We get it, and we have the solution.
Be smart with sustainability
On the journey to net-zero, the number of SKUs is rising. Combined with the traceability demands of sustainable sourcing, increasing complexity in tire production is driving digitalization and automation. Tire manufacturers are investing in smart factories to future-proof their operations.
Dream Factory: proven automation
We can digitize and automate your processes with our proven Dream Factory solution. By seamlessly integrating advanced robotic technologies, versatile material handling systems and powerful software, we provide turnkey, end-to-end automation solutions with precise, real-time control. Cimcorp Dream Factory allows you to do more with less.
Greenfield or brownfield tire plant
It doesn’t matter whether your factory is brand-new or decades old–with its modular and scalable design, Dream Factory can streamline operations in both greenfields and brownfields. Invest in a complete solution, or automate your processes one by one: the choice is yours.
Tips for brownfields: check out our White Paper entitled ‘How to stay competitive with your tire factory’.
The benefits stack up
The potential gains from automating the material and data flow in your tire plant are vast:
- Increase your output 100% availability of raw materials, components and tires at each process step
- Invest less capital in intralogistics through optimized layout design and simplified material flow
- Ensure full traceability for each and every tire
- Secure cost savings by minimizing scrap, bottlenecks, WIP and inventory
- Achieve maximum speed, efficiency and accuracy through automation
- Improve production flexibility
- Optimize use of space: production requires half the space of conventional solutions• Raisequality through gentle handling
- Enhance customer satisfaction with fast, error-free picking and shipping
Keep on curing…
The production capacity of your plant is determined by the throughput of the curing presses. By creating an optimal buffer of green tires between the building machines and the presses, Cimcorp Dream Factory ensures 100% green tire availability for maximum press utilization.
Get in the driving seat
Advanced software is what makes a tire plant smart. With Dream Factory, full control of material, data and process flow means complete traceability for every tire and precise, real-time data for production and inventory management. The intelligence driving Dream Factory is Cimcorp’s Warehouse Control System (WCS) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) –software developed specifically for the tire sector.
WCS optimizes the entire material flow, integrating the robots and various handling subsystems into one comprehensive intralogistics solution. Meanwhile MES takes care of production data, recipe management and reporting to ensure comprehensive tracking and tracing, as well as enabling In-Process Verification.
