How Innovation is Helping Tire Manufacturers

Manufacturing Technology Insights | Monday, March 22, 2021

The tire manufacturing companies use new technologies to make tires for automated vehicles that are smooth and less expensive.

FREMONT, CA: Technology-driven trends are transforming the way people get to work and get work done dramatically. On city streets and highways, automated vehicles are already driving and operating on farms and mines, while electric vehicles' emergence is only another component of a broader trend towards environmental sustainability.

The overall demand for car tires, truck tires, and airplane tires is rising dramatically, along with new vehicles' growth with complicated tire requirements. Moreover, vehicle miles are projected to double to 20 trillion by 2030. To facilitate a seamless, safe, sustainable ride into the future, it's necessary to reconsider the way companies make tires.

Tire Manufacturers Need Solutions for Today's Challenges

In order to stay ahead, manufacturers must evolve with the tire industry experiencing significant transformation and with the growing competition. But obstacles towards innovations are manual processes and disconnected resources, causing overlapped effort and time-wasting accidents. Tire manufacturers will hit the accelerator for development by linking tire design and simulation to the fully integrated and collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE platform of Dassault Systèmes.

Cost control is another problem tire manufacturers encounter. A lot of resources go into producing a tire, from raw materials to research and development. Another way tire manufacturers achieve substantial cost savings is by testing prototype tires in SIMULIA's high-fidelity virtual space instead of on a test track. Virtual testing also accelerates the assessment of results, enhancing time to market.

For tire manufacturing industry, efficiency is always a priority. But for different tire customers, efficiency means other things, such as precision handling, safety, improved MPG, feather-light weight, and minimum noise. With a connected method, supply chain optimization, and NETVIBES AI-powered social listening, it is simple to react to a broad range of customer demands faster and more efficiently utilizing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Another main concern for consumers, states, and the industry is environmental protection. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps tire manufacturers promote green tire innovation, utilizing the adequate CATIA design software to maximize weight, rolling resistance, and longevity, including using renewable raw materials like vegetable oils or natural replacements to synthetic rubber.
