Smart Plants, Smart Supply, Smart Tires

The Future Tire Conference 2017, organised by European Rubber Journal, will take place on the 27-28 June 2017 at the Leonardo Royal Hotel in Cologne, Germany.
Tire manufacture is an increasingly complex, multi-stage process requiring human intervention and manual operations – particularly in the mixing area. Changing market demands and developments are increasingly requiring the industry to adopt new technology, especially, automated and integrated processes.   Making the right technology decisions has the ability to raise efficiency, quality and safety and increase responsiveness to market demands by cutting lead times and allowing the production of smaller batches. 
This well-established event addresses how the forces of change are re-shaping tire production and distribution with the emergence of new materials, processes and software.  Successful modern tire manufacturers must examine the cost vs ROI of many things, but primarily, automated factories, robotics, the internet of things, RFID, predictive analytics, additive manufacturing and the integration of a smart supply chain. 

Examination of what will be the biggest game changers over the next 5-10 years
Key focus on advances in tire-plant automation: what changes are being adopted
What do manufacturers need to do now to adapt, shape and harness the technological revolution?
Investment decisions to support new automated machines and technologies
How increasingly connected smart cars are impacting tire design
How can technology be used to enhance industry skills and training?
Using real-time data analytics to create more efficient life cycle production
RFID capabilities to track and trace processes
Smarter supply chain and logistics solutions
Lean manufacturing and distribution
