Streetsboro, Ohio – Micro-Poise Measurement Systems plans to replace an existing tire measurement system at a production facility of a major American tire builder.
The firm partnered with Siemens to replace the modular tire measurement system (MTMS) within the same footprint. Micro-Poise said Siemens assisted on the motion and machine control elements and also helped with a communications platform that will “seamlessly transmit all data gathered upstream to the end user’s production management team.”
The new MTMS is currently in the build and test phases at Micro-Poise, with delivery to the customer slated for the autumn of 2016. During early 2017, additional linking of the machine to the entire production protocol will occur, Micro-Poise said.
According to the firm, an MTMS is a tire uniformity, dynamic tire balance measurement and tire geometry inspection system combined in a single unit for optimum performance, minimal manpower hours and optimum floorspace utilisation in tire plant facilities. The system combines Micro-Poise tire measurement technology with advanced Siemens servo motors, drives and TIA Portal PLCs plus enhanced communications protocol to provide the best measurement and cycle time on the market.
Micro-Poise is an Ametek company with over 90 years experience in service to the tire and auto industries based in Streetsboro.
