BUCHEN, Germany—MonTech GmbH will exhibit its online testing cell during the Tire and Technology Expo in Hanover, Germany, Feb. 20-22.
Global advancements in smart factories and increasing demand for efficiency throughout the tire manufacturing process propelled the design of the online testing cell, Montech said.
The firm said that the product link all the necessary MonTech testing instruments for batch release into a single, compact and modular enclosed frame that can be integrated directly into the mixing line. In doing so, the online testing cell automatically receives slab samples for testing, and its internal robotics prepare the sample, label, bin and position each specimen on the integrated moving die rheometers, rubber process analyzers, and bulk density testers.
MonTech also said that the closed loop control of mixing, testing, and host data interfaces provided by the cell allows users to fine tune and optimize all processes together.
The online testing cell is ideal for high-capacity mixing operations as it analyzes data in real time. The firm claims that the product enhances testing capabilities, repeatability and accuracy.
MonTech will be exhibiting at booth No. 5040 for the duration of the Tire and Technology Expo.
