Rockwell Automation collaborates with Prometeon Tyre Group to transform Global manufacturing processes


Rockwell Automation, Inc has entered into a multi-year collaboration with Prometeon Tyre Group, the industrial tire manufacturer headquartered in Italy.

The goal of this program, spanning facilities in Italy, Türkiye, Egypt, and Brazil, is to enhance Prometeon Tyre Group’s digitalisation strategy, elevating manufacturing efficiency, sustainability and technological advancement.

Under the terms of the agreement, Rockwell Automation will implement its Manufacturing Execution System (MES), enabling comprehensive digital integration across all Prometeon Tyre Group's global facilities. 

The project aims to replace the current systems and create a standardised, technologically advanced environment. Anticipated benefits include:

  • Enhanced operational efficiency
  • Improved labour utilisation
  • Increased productivity and effectiveness
  • Reduced cost of quality and compliance

Rockwell Automation's MES platform is enriched with industry-specific templates and leveraging the core of FactoryTalk ProductionCentre. The solution also includes the best-in-class IIoT capabilities of PTC ThingWorxand Plex Quality Management System (QMS). 

This provides customers with a comprehensive production operations management solution, allowing seamless connection to enterprise platforms. This approach entails a shift in operational dynamics, moving towards a more streamlined connected system for global sites, enabling more efficient production scheduling, more predictable quality delivery, and seamless automation integration.

Sustainability is also a key focus, with both companies committed to improving operational efficiency and reducing environmental impact.

“Drawing from our experience of working with other international tire brands, we can provide a holistic, flexible approach to digital transformation in the tire industry,” said Dan Paul, global business director, tire industry, Rockwell Automation. “Together with Prometeon Tyre Group we have arrived at digital solutions that are designed to be both standardised and maintainable across Prometeon Tyre Group’s diverse global operations.”
