In another first, Sparkonix introduces a new range of specialized EDMs for Tyre Mould manufacturing. The demand for spark erosion technology in Tyre Mould manufacturing is expected to grow with greater use of advanced mould materials and shift towards two-piece moulds by tyre manufacturers. Sparkonix launched its Tyre Mould EDM range at the recently held Tyrexpo 2016 in Delhi. Large scale need for tyre mould manufacturing in India will be driven by multiple factors such as:
- Steady and sustained growth of automotive industry
- Huge investments by tyre manufacturers in India
- Presence of world’s leading tyre manufacturers
- Growing number of vehicle and tyre variants
From the inception, Sparkonix has always been recognised for developing innovative solutions in EDMs. The indigenous development of EDMs for the tyre mould manufacturing is in line with Sparkonix’s vision to bring innovative technologies for Indian manufacturers. In the recent past, mould manufacturing for the tyres has seen a significant shift outside of India, especially to China. However, with increasing variants, greater cost-pressures and shorter timelines, tyre manufacturers have faced multiple challenges in sourcing tyre moulds.
In addition to proven technology, performance and results, we have two distinct advantages over the imported tyre mould EDMs. First, Sparkonix offers huge savings in investments required for the tyre mould EDMs. Secondly, a nationwide network of support engineers ensures an assured service and spares availability for years to come. — Shailesh Patwardhan, Director, Sparkonix (India) Pvt.

There is a huge opportunity in Tyre mould manufacturing for mould manufacturers based in India and it is largely untapped. While the tyre mould manufacturing needs multiple technologies, availability of EDM technology remains its key link. The launch of a ‘made-in-India’ EDM technology from Sparkonix bridges this key link for Indian mould manufacturers and empowers them to explore the huge opportunities in tyre mould manufacturing market.
