More than 1 billion tires are manufactured worldwide every year in some 500 tire factories. By the year 2024, the automotive tire market is expected to reach $374 billion.
Adjustments and regulation of pressure are the major considerations in tire manufacturing and tire testing. Proportion-Air offers closed-loop electronic flow control and pressure control regulators and valves for a variety of applications in the development and use of rubber tire materials, including:
- Control of saturated steam during the curing process.
- Pressure adjustments required as tires are built around a drum, during the inflation of tires while testing and during the manufacturing and mouting process.
- Test measurments for uniformity and balance during the final finishing of the manufacturing process.
- Grinding of tire whitewalls to remove unwanted materials…we know you miss these.
