Weighing technology takes central role in monitoring of tires production



Tire manufacturer Kumho Tire, established in Korea in 1960, has become a well-established brand that is known for highest quality. HBK load cells are used in production for weighing tires to assure the quality of the finished product. Joining the semi-finished units for molding in the drum is one of the most critical processes during the entire tire production process. The tire is molded in a so-called 'Green Case' and prepared for the subsequent curing process.


Determining tire weight in the 'Green Case'

Scale manufacturer Scale-Tron, in cooperation with HBK, has developed a weighing solution for Kumho. HBK's SP4M load cell is used for determining tire weight in the 'Green Case': Every 'Green Case' is weighed using a weighing system comprising four SP4M load cells connected to the central system via a VKK junction box.

Higher level of quality of the finished products

Scale-Tron had been using load cells of domestic production for a long time. However, high failure rates and low reliability required a new approach. "Quality in production has top priority for our customers; therefore, our weighing system too needs to be of highest quality, since it takes a central role in monitoring. Our switch to HBK has made the entire system much more stable and enabled us to take the quality of the finished products to a new level," says Yoo Young-Seok, CEO of Scale-Tron.


Formed as a private corporation, specializing in automatic weighing systems and quickly entered the concrete industry.  The company has developed five generations of batch controllers, mostly used in automatic concrete production.  In addition, numerous custom weighing systems covering almost every industry.
