With this innovation HF is anticipating the desires in the market in terms of:

  • Highest quality demands
  • Safety & the reduction of accidents caused by defective tires
  • Material & cost saving in the production process
  • Traceability in the production process and beyond
  • Big data – the digital twin of each tire delivers all information needed
  • Less downtime due to quick reactions and adjustments in the production process
  • Upgradeable on many tire building machines in the market

During the show HF also presented the HF Curemaster, the truck tire curing press that was launched last year at the same time and received good feedback from the customers and gained recognition. Mr Kevin Rolfe held a technical presentation on the HF Curemaster followed by interesting talks at the booth.

Eventually the situation of the coronavirus had an effect on the numbers of visitors coming to the expo. Several companies had spoken out travel bans to their employees, therefore there were less visitors than usual at the show.
