Wipro Infrastructure Engineering (WIN)’s Automation Business unit has launched industrial automation and factory automation solutions specifically for the Indian tyre industry.
Tyre companies have been relying a lot on imported systems from the USA, Europe, Korea and China to automate their factories, according to a WIN statement.
WIN Automation said it believes that “Make in India” is not complete if the capital equipment for production processes are continued to be imported.
“WIN Automation is now fully geared to provide end to end automation solutions for tyre industries competing with global majors,” the statement said.
WIN will collaborate with Rockwell and other major automation partnerships towards this goal. It claims to have already bagged a major order from one of tyre majors in the country.
