From inception in the late 80’s, Silverstone has been planned as a modern linear plant with state-of-the-art machinery and test equipment to produce tyres that meet world standards. Today, Silverstone has a comprehensive range of high performance tyres as in passenger car tyres, SUV tyres, 4x4 tyres, light/ heavy commercial vehicle tyres, industrial machinery tyres and competition tyres, and exports to more than 60 countries worldwide.
The Footprint Analyser uses Tyre Tread Analysis System (TTAS) to measure the pressure distribution of a tyre footprint by applying a preset force. The system produces a full colour high resolution presentation of pressure distribution and it analyses the gross-contact area and groove area fraction to design a pattern that ensures even distribution of pressure is achieved throughout the pattern blocks.
The Brüel & Kjaer Pulse uses FFT and CPB to analyse noise and vibration in decibel and provides graphic information that is crucial to the understanding of the relationship between tyre and noise.
Low Hysteresis Compound gives lower rolling resistant thus delivering low fuel consumption.
The Silent Roll Tyre Tread Noise Simulator optimises tread pattern pitch arrangement to achieve the lowest tyre noise level.
