In a recent release, JK Tyre and Industries, a major tire manufacturer in India, announced its collaboration with Altizon Systems, an industrial IIoT (Industrial IoT) platform company. JK Tyre reportedly is using Altizon’s Datonis Manufacturing Intelligence platform to drive the company’s enterprise digital transformation.

According to the release, JK Tyre wanted to digitalize and IoT-enable its plant assets with the objectives of bringing visibility and predictability into its manufacturing value chain, improving asset utilization and reducing conversion cost per unit of production. They wanted to implement a solution that was adaptable, reliable and scalable across their multiple manufacturing plants.

Altizon’s Datonis Manufacturing Intelligence Platform reportedly enabled JK Tyre to securely connect and process IoT data at scale. The solution has provided the company with a 360-degree view of the line from productivity, quality, energy, maintenance and traceability perspective. Altizon’s Datonis Manufacturing Intelligence Platform delivers the ability to analyze and visualize operational data in real-time, integrate IoT data into business applications and help enterprises make optimal decisions and pre-empt uncertainties in operations.

“We are among the early adopters of Industrial IoT in the tire industry and see great value in digitizing our plants,” said Mr. Anil Makkar, Manufacturing Director, JK Tyre. “We deployed Altizon’s Manufacturing Intelligence (Mint) platform and are already reaping benefits with a laser focus on ROI. We have noticed immediate gains on the predictive failure front. The true gain on OEEs are yet to be reflected, too early to conclude. We are already scaling Altizon’s solution to our second plant and look forward to scaling further to other plants and use the platform as the single source of truth for monitoring our operational KPIs and continuous improvement initiatives.”

JK Tyre was able to reduce mean time to repair, eliminate unplanned machine downtimes, improve productivity, decrease the cost of spares and the cost of energy consumed per unit of production. Scaling the solution to multiple plants will enable JK Tyre to realize real time internal benchmarking of their critical assets and further improve performance.

“JK Tyre is a very progressive manufacturer who has adopted and taken advantage of technology innovation and process automation like few other tyre industry manufacturers,” said Vinay Nathan, CEO and Co-founder, Altizon. “The deployment of Datonis Mint at the Chennai facility has helped to dramatically improve processes and operational costs. We are delighted to expand our relationship with JK Tyre, as they look to set the standard for enterprise digital transformation in the tyre industry.”
