The First Half of 2022 Tire Market is Unsatisfactory, Vehicle Tire Manufacturing Companies How to Integrate Internal Resources to Save Costs?

According to the Latest Data from the Tire Industry, the Overall Production and Operation of the Tire Industry in the First Quarter of 2022 is Not Good, Which Can Be Called the Most Difficult Year Since the Industry: Poor Transportation, Epidemic Control, and Imported Materials Are Blocked, the Price of Raw Materials Soaring, a Large Increase in Inventory, Sales Restrictions and Other Situations Multi-point Outbreak. Tire Manufacturing Industry at the Same Time by the Impact of the Automotive Industry Shutdown, Gaijin Automotive Research Institute Wang Xianbin Expects a Precipitous Decline in Automobile Production in the Second Quarter, Will Further Affect the Operation of Tire Companies. It is Reported That in 2022 Most of the Major Technical and Economic Indicators of the Tire Companies Have Seen a Decline of -5% to -15% in the Same Period.

In the Global Economic Downward Environment of Tire Manufacturing Enterprises How to Further Reduce Costs and Increase Efficiency, to Survive the Tough Winter?
MOZLASER‘s Laser Cleaning Machines May Be Able to Bring Some Help!

Tire Manufacturers Are Facing a Huge Waste of Energy, Especially in the Tire Vulcanization Process.

As We All Know, the Tire Vulcanization Process is the First Major Consumer of Energy in the Tire Production Chain. General Tire Vulcanization is Done by Giving Superheated Water or Steam at a Certain Pressure to the Mold and the Bladder, So That the Inner and Outer Temperatures of the Tire Rise Above 180°c and Around 150°c Respectively, a Process That Requires a Lot of Heat. Tire Manufacturing Companies Report That the Energy Consumption of the Vulcanization Process is the Highest. Therefore, Reducing the Energy Consumption of the Curing Process is the Key Point to Reducing the Cost and Increasing the Efficiency of the Tire Enterprises Nowadays.

In This Regard, in Addition to Using a Nitrogen Vulcanization Process Instead of a Superheated Water Process, Avoiding Systematic Waste of Heat, and Upgrading of Fully Automated Curing Workshop, Tire Mold Cleaning is Also One of the Key Steps, Because the Traditional Processing Method Requires the Vulcanizer to Stop for a Long Time to Cool Down the Mold First, and then Raise the Temperature After Cleaning and Processing, the Whole Process is Time-consuming and Wasteful of Heat Energy. at the Same Time, the Frequent Switching on and off of the Stove Also Makes the Automatic Workshop Lose the Meaning of Saving Energy.

Tire Mold Cleaning is Generally Divided into Two Situations: One is the Mold Replacement Due to the Switch of Specification Pattern, and the Other is Just the Cleaning of Tire Mold and Not the Switch of Specification Pattern. Either One Needs to Satisfy Two Types of Cleaning, One is Mold Refurbishment with a Thorough Cleaning Cycle, and the Other is In-line Cleaning During Production with an Extended Thorough Cleaning Cycle.

Laser Cleaning Technology Can Match All Above Requirements is the Best Choice for Tire Mold Cleaning.

The Advantages of Laser Cleaning Tire Molds

Synchronizing Laser Cleaning to the Mold Production Line to Achieve Monitoring and Automating the Cleaning of Residual Raw Materials on the Mold Can Be a Good Solution to the Problem of Long Downtime Delaying Production. in the Tire Mold Cleaning, Non-destructive and Efficient Decisive Factors. for Example: for a Pair of High-precision Mold to Do Cleaning, with the Traditional Way Such As Dry Ice or Chemical Cleaning, It Takes 8 Hours of Downtime, but with Laser Cleaning, Only a Few Minutes to Complete, and the Operating Costs Are Negligible. Such As a Tire Production Plant Cleaning 1500 Pairs of Molds a Year, Which Can Save Production Time 6000 Hours; Tire Production Can Increase by About 30,000 Sets. Not Only Environmental Protection, but Economic Benefits Are Also Considerable.
With Laser Cleaning Gum, Rust, Accumulation of Cushions Can Be Thoroughly Cleaned Without Dead Ends, Mold Outer Surface Bright, No Draw, Burn Spot and Color Difference and Other Damage, and Can Extend the Cleaning Cycle. the Best Solution, the Tire Mold Industry Usually Needs a 500-2000 Watts Laser Cleaning System, Recovery of the Full Investment Time of 12 to 18 Months.
Laser Cleaning Has Unique Advantages in the Process:
1. Precise and Consistent Cleaning Results;
2. Safe Cleaning, No Wear and Tear of the Substrate; 3. Extended Mold Life; 4. Molds Can Be Hot or Cold Cleaning and In-line Cleaning;
5. Mold Cleaning Speed of Up to 22m² / Hour;
6. Easy to Work with Automation System. Laser Cleaning Can Also Be Used in the Refining Process, Which is the Second Largest Consumer of Energy: the Laser Can Remove Paint, Rust, Oil, and Other Residues from the Original Equipment During Maintenance and Lubrication of the Compactor and Knapper, Facilitating Secondary Maintenance, Reducing Unscheduled Downtime and Keeping the Equipment in Optimal Condition.

Other Applications of Mozlaser Laser Cleaning System in the Tire Industry

  1. Tire Inner Wall Cleaning, in the Production Process of High-grade Silent Tires and Self-replacing Tires, Before the Application of Silent Cotton or Self-replacing Rubber, the Inner Wall of the Tire Needs to Be De-glazed and De-separated Layer, the Main Components Are Methyl Hydrogen Siloxane (5-15%) and Water. in This Process, It is Required Not to Damage the Inner Surface of the Tire, and at the Same Time to Increase the Surface Adhesion: the Inner Surface Friction Coefficient is Raised > 35mn / M, and the Surface Tension Reaches 38dyne / Cm.   The Laser Cleaning Machine in the Removal of Cleanliness Can Reach 99.99%, Particle Size to Micron Level, in the Commissioning of Equipment for Customers in the Actual Measurement, in the Specific Process Window to Meet the Highest Requirements of Technology is 46mn / M Above, the Surface Tension of 46dyne / Cm.  At the Same Time the Stability of the Equipment Also Reached the Corresponding Standards, Can Meet the Automation Workshop Uninterrupted Trouble-free Operation.
  2.  Laser Marking,Laser Marking is a Mature Surface Process, Applied to Finished Tires That Can Be Scorched with a Unique Logo, Once Scorched Can Not Be Changed, with the Advantages of Safety, Environmental Protection, and High Anti-counterfeiting. the Industry Using More Paper QR Code Labels, but This Label is Easy to Counterfeit. the Qr Code on the Tire is Easy to Torn Off, Which Brings Uncertainty About the Warranty.  MOZLASER Laser Cleaning Machine Can Take into Account the Use of Tire Marking, the Traceability Code in the Form of Characters or Two-dimensional Code Information Implantation, Integrated Server Database. You Can Do the Consumer a Key Query, and Manufacturers Facilitate Control.
