Order Reprints

Hankook Tire Co. Ltd. has unveiled its Virtual Compound Design (VCD) system, which it describes as "a predictive model for tire compound properties using artificial intelligence."

The VCD system "uses technology that predicts the characteristics of compounds and draws the most optimal combination of materials through artificial intelligence analysis, which is based on accumulated data without actual testing during tire compound development," according to Hankook officials.

Hankook says the system will enable it to slash compound development time by 50%.

The tiremaker plans to expand the VCD system to the entire process of developing tires, including material selection, design, testing and mass production.
