Experts at Steelastic have been engaged in deep discussions about upcoming trends and challenges in the tire industry – such as more flexibility in production.

Company president Ian Dennis said, “The tire industry is evolving at a rate never seen before. This evolution is driving requirements for significantly increased flexibility, automation, efficiency and traceability in tire manufacturing equipment. Steelastic is at the forefront of technology development that satisfies these requirements as well as making smaller, more flexible and lower-capital-outlay tire plants a viable reality.”

The company’s extrusion process is now being applied to equipment across tire component preparation. Find out more about the latest technologies for manufacturing radial belts and cap strip on Stand 8014 at Tire Technology Expo 2018. The show runs until 22 February. More information at
