Tire Technology Awards 2018

Tire Technology Awards 2018: Ferm RFID Solutions on the shortlist!

The consultants of Ferm RFID Solutions are very proud they reached the short list in the category “Tire Manufacturing Innovation of the Year” with our RFID Mold solution.

“With just a month to go until Tire Technology Expo 2018 gets underway in Hannover, Germany, the shortlisted nominations for this year’s Tire Technology International Awards for Innovation and Excellence have been revealed!”

Tire Manufacturing Innovation of the Year
Bartell – Automatic Truck Bead Apex System 
Eastman – Crystex Cure Pro
Ferm – RFID mold solution
Versalis – BDSPs (butadiene di-block stereo regular polymers)

Ferm RFID Solutions invested four years in the development of this solution to increase the quality of the production of tires. Ferm RFID solutions developed a RFID solution which support all processes related to mold management:

  • Improve process efficiency
  • Increase data accuracy
  • Less operating costs
  • Improve planning & Maintenance
  • Real-time visibility of mold location (warehouse & factory) and status
  • Fast and accurate location of molds and mold parts
  • 100% lifecycle management
  • Solution for both new and existing molds
  • One to one real time relation between design, mold, mold parts
  • One to one relation between press, mold and tire
  • Production location and status.

Ferm developed and tested this solution in the past four years in close cooperation with a number of tire producers. The RFID tags which has been developed are embedded within each individual segment and survive all harsh processes like:

  • Preheating up till 260 degrees Celsius;
  • Sand blasting
  • Dry ice cleaning
  • Ultrasonic bath cleaning
  • Heavily repair processes like welding.

Using a small RFID tag within each segment having a short reading distance, gives the opportunity to count the sequence of the segments within the container itself.  Overall, creating a “mother child relation” between mold and segments (parts) avoids mistakes and create more transparency within the production of tires.
