Standards Testing Laboratories (STL) will be presenting its 2019 Tire Technology seminar at the company’s Massillon, Ohio headquarters on November 12, 13 and 14, 2019.

The seminar is designed to benefit a variety of people involved directly or indirectly with the tire industry. The material is geared toward the non-tire engineer or the entry-level engineer, however, the program also offers experienced tire engineers an opportunity to learn, too. Individuals who need a general knowledge of tire design, construction, materials and performance are invited to attend as well. 

All of the speakers are professionals in fields including engineering, chemistry, engineering mechanics and vehicle dynamics. This technical team of automotive and tire experts has years of relevant service and experience in the tire industry in the areas of tire testing, design, research, engineering, compounding, product development, and advanced concepts.

The seminar will provide an overview of tire industry terminology and technology, the raw materials that go into the making of a tire, along with the design, applications, compounding, construction and manufacturing processes.  Rubber/polymer chemistry, physics, as well as testing standards and procedures, are also covered during the two-and-a-half-day educational program.  

Registration costs US$1,400 and includes admission to the seminar, all materials, three lunches, an evening banquet and refreshments throughout the course. STL can assist with hotel accommodation. The deadline to register is October 18.
