Bridgestone introduces new assembling system
Bridgestone Corporation has introduced its new tyre assembling system “EXAMATION” at its flagship Hikone Plant. Designed to further improve quality and enhance productivity with regards to tyre production technologies, this advanced system combines Bridgestone’s proprietary information and communication technologies with artificial intelligence. Bridgestone plans to leverage this system at existing and new factories globally to boost competitiveness on the production side of operations and enable the Bridgestone Group to deliver even higher quality products to a wide range of customers.
The EXAMATION system incorporates more advanced versions of the information and communication technologies utilized in the BIRD system and also employs new proprietary technologies based on the new concepts of Bridgestone Intelligent Office BIO and Bridgestone Intelligent Device BID. BIO and BID refer to new technologies that incorporate data analysis utilizing Bridgestone’s core expertise in the processing of high polymer- rubber complex materials, which represents a core technology area.
These technologies also employ proprietary algorithms that are made by combining analysis of big data collected from manufacturing processes with the techniques and know-how of Bridgestone’s experts in manufacturing process.
Based on the algorithms that exceed prior insight created by BIO, BID introduces a unique artificial intelligence that automatically controls production systems, thereby enabling automatic control of production processes and quality assurance judgments and procedures that were previously dependent on the human skills. The system allows us to minimize various production process disparities arising from differences in the human capabilities to realize levels of manufacturing precision not previously seen.
