Yokohama Rubber develops rubber material with crack resistance from nanoparticle-based polymers

The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced the development of a highly crack-resistant rubber material made from nanoparticle-based polymers that do not use any additives, such as organic solvents and reinforcing agents. The development is the result of a collaborative effort with a research group led by Associate Professor Daisuke Suzuki of Shinshu University’s Graduate School of Textile Science and Technology and RISM (Research Initiative for Supra-Materials). Further research based on knowledge gained during the collaborative research project is expected to lead to the development of safer and more durable tires and rubber products that are people- and environment-friendly. The developed rubber material can be easily recycled without deterioration and therefore is expected to contribute to the realization of a circular economy

Automation reduces scrap in the tire industry

The increasing focus on sustainability, combined with high energy prices, means that energy efficiency is more important than ever. The benefit of Cimcorp’s robotic technology in terms of energy use is tangible, as the company’s gantry robots feature low energy consumption. With the structure of each gantry robot formed from aluminum, they are lightweight yet robust. As the robots are not heavy, they accelerate and move fast, optimizing all the potential handling capacity for products moved in the distribution center.

Researchers develop new fiber composite material with cellulose reinforcement fibers

The German Institutes for Textile and Fiber with the project partners CG TEC, Cordenka, ElringKlinger, Fiber Engineering and Technikum Laubholz are developing a new fiber composite material (CELLUN) with cellulose reinforcement fibers. The matrix of the material is a thermoplastic cellulose derivative that can be processed in industrial processing methods such as hot pressing or pultrusion. CELLUN made from renewable biopolymers enables the replacement of glass or carbon fibers in the manufacture of industrial molded parts.

Smithers develops study on low-temperature tire rolling resistance

Tire rolling resistance is closely related to overall vehicle fuel economy or range in both ICE and electric vehicles (EVs). Currently, it is understood that rolling resistance reduction is a reliable strategy for optimizing a vehicle’s fuel economy or cruising range. Many countries, regions, and manufacturers are establishing rolling resistance targets in order to achieve greater energy savings, fulfill “green” initiatives, and reduce carbon emissions.
