JK Tyre inaugurates Global Technology Centre in Mysore, India

Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy and Dr Raghupati Singhania, Chairman and Managing Director, JK Tyre have inaugurated JK Tyre’s state-of-the-art ‘global technology centre’—Raghupati Singhania Centre of Excellence (RPSCOE) at Mysore, India. It is the first of its kind in India which offers the latest technologies in the tyre manufacturing space, including a Semi-Anechoic Chamber for reduced noise vibration and harshness data analysis.

Jitendra J Jadhav, Director, National Aerospace Laboratory, Bangalore, GT Devegowda, Minister for Higher Education and District in Charge Minister, Sa Ra Mahesh, Minister for Tourism and Sericulture; Pratap Simha, MP, Dr Girish Sahni, Director General, CSIR were also present. The RPSCOE Centre is part of the Harishankar Singhania Elastomer and Tyre Research Institute (HASETRI) and is a conglomeration of the best scientists, engineers and technicians in the industry who have come together to optimize product performance and product design cycle time through simulation and predictive techniques.

“I greatly appreciate JK Tyre for setting up this ‘Global Technology Centre’ that will provide technology to its identities in India and abroad. JK Tyre has had a presence in Mysore for the last 21 years, and that too as the only tyre manufacturing company of large tyres in Karnataka. I urge the company under the able leadership of Dr Raghupati Singhania to continue its good work by providing tailormade courses through HASETRI and RPS Centre of Excellence to the youth of Karnataka and contribute to the economic and social development of Mysore,” said Kumaraswamy.

“Ever since we introduced India to radial tyre technology in 1977, we have continued our search to stoke the scientific temperament. A year ago, we rolled out our 10 millionth truck/bus radial tyre from our plant in Mysore, becoming the first company in India to do so. Today, it gives me immense joy to say that with this Centre we have added to the list of the many firsts for JK Tyre. We want RPSCOE to become an aspiration not only for the people of Mysore but for the whole country,” said Dr Raghupati Singhania.

Research at RPSCOE is focussed on multiple aspects of tyre technology, including developing advanced laboratory predictors for tyre performance and providing key inputs for life prediction of rubber products. Among the many areas researched at the Centre include material and compound development, future technology development, computational mechanics and tyre characterisation. One of the special features of the Centre is the Semi-Anechoic Chamber, a first in the Indian tyre industry, which uses specialised software for noise vibration and harshness data analysis.
JK Tyre is amongst the top 25 manufacturers in the world with a wide range of products catering to diverse business segments in the automobile industry. It has a global presence in 100 countries across six continents, backed by production support from 12 plants – nine in India and three in Mexico.
