Let’s make one thing clear from the start: the wheel is
unlikely to be reinvented anytime in the foreseeable future.
However, potential for development in the area of tyre
technology doesn’t look as if it will be fully exhausted
for quite some time yet. This assertion was certainly
more than clear at the ‘Science meets Tires’ conference,
the annual summit for the international rubber and tyre
Representatives from research organisations, the tyre
industry, automobile manufacturers, mechanical engineers
and measuring equipment and software suppliers got
together in Aachen at the beginning of September to
present and discuss the latest insights, innovations and
requirements in relation to the ‘tyres of the future’. The
IKV (The Institute of Plastics Processing) and the IKA
(The Institute of Automotive Engineering) from RWTH
Aachen University hosted the event.
