Shinko Tyre factory - production process

Post by Frank.61 »

Hi,

Yeah? you must really like tires :P :P :lol: :lol:
nah , your right , there does seem to be a fair bit of worker input where you would think it would be more automated , but then labour is cheap there .

Hi,

I have been twice in a tyre factory in Europe (Michelin & Continental) and the production is almost identical.
You’d be surprised about the amount of hand labour.
