In the tire industry, the production process is of great significance. In a global environment that is developing consistently and dynamically, justified processes are essential in terms of production and quality. A critical part of the production process is the maintenance and cleaning of molds. Clean molds and thus availability equals flexibility and has direct impact on the production capacity and production costs. Safety, noise and waste are also key reasons why manufacturers need to review and control the tire production process. We at Cold Jet understand this mission and offer solutions for tire manufacture companies to analyze and control these critical processes. The maintenance process and mold cleaning can be either handled in-house or by a supplier but the most efficient and effective cleaning solution should be selected. Cold Jet also anticipates to the new trend in tire mold cleaning, which is in place, automatically, non-abrasive and cleaning with Dry Ice MicroParticles. Cold Jet’s global support and customer service presence in Europe, America and Asia provides significant benefits for the tire industry.
