As part of the major expansion of its Serbian factory, tire manufacturer Tigar Tyres has invested in Cimcorp’s Dream Factory concept for automated material handling.
Tigar Tyres, part of the Michelin Group, decided to implement its ambitious expansion plan in order to achieve a 50 percent increase in annual production capacity from 8 million to 12 million tires by the end of 2016.
Cimcorp, headquartered in Finland, was commissioned to automate the material flows in the tire-building and curing areas as well as in the finishing and palletizing areas for three production lines.
“Cimcorp’s automation offered us a complete and efficient solution,” explained Gary Scheide, Plant Director, “that would mean quality, speed, flexibility and cost control, thereby helping us reach our production targets and satisfy client demands.”
Tigar Tyres chose Cimcorp as partner partly thanks to Cimcorp’s good reputation as a pioneer in the area of intralogistics automation, partly because the company has successfully delivered several robotic systems to the Michelin Group over the years.
