ERJ previews some of the leading-edge ancillaries, testing and service offerings lined up for the Tire Technology Expo 2019 trade fair and conference, taking place 5-7 March at the Deutsche Messe, Hanover, Germany:
Automation specialist Siemens will present its “digital enterprise” portfolio during TTE 2019. The range of solutions revolves around ‘digital twins’ of the tire, the production machines and plants – from the design stage to real-world operation.
Siemens’ simulation tools will enable manufacturers to develop and test machines virtually, reducing the need the need for prototypes and speed up time-to-maker. The company also offers simulation tools for the analysis of tire behaviours, including force, aerodynamics or acoustic.
