Graco introduces new injector-based automatic lubricating pumps for tire machinery  

Friday, April 17, 2015

Minneapolis, MN - Graco Inc. has introduced the LubePro™ family of injector-based automatic lubrication pumps. LubePro pumps represent a breakthrough in performance and durability. LubePro pumps leverage components from the durable and reliable Graco Fire-Ball® lubrication pumps, which for over 50 years have delivered proven quality and long-life performance. LubePro™ series pumps offer a robust solution where high output and fast lubrication cycles are needed to optimally lubricate equipment while it’s working. They are most commonly used to lubricate machines used in food and beverage processing and packaging, glass manufacturing, tire production, injection molding, paper production and many other industrial manufacturing and production applications. “Every day, plant managers have to worry about keeping up with production demands and reducing operating costs,” said Chuck Hartl, Global Product Marketing Manager for Graco’s Lubrication Equipment Division. “Improper lubrication of their machines can cause component failure and downtime, which results in unplanned maintenance expenses and loss of production. We also understand that customers expect auto lubrication systems to not become a new source for maintenance issues. Therefore, with LubePro™ pumps our customers can expect greater reliability and less maintenance time related to machinery lubrication.” - * Email

Indonesia tire industry is forecast to grow 13% according to new market report  

Friday, April 17, 2015

Burnaby, Canada - According to a recently released TechSci Research report, "Indonesia Tyre Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2020", the tire market in Indonesia is forecast to grow at a CAGR of over 13% during 2015-20. Major factors that are expected to boost Indonesia's tire industry include abundant raw material availability, continuing government support and growing domestic automotive industry. As Indonesia offers easy and abundant availability of raw materials for manufacturing tires, most of the leading tyre companies like Gajah Tunggal, Suryaraya Rubber, Sumi Rubber, Industry Karet Deli, Bridgestone, Goodyear, etc. operate their respective domestic tire manufacturing plants in the country. Moreover, a number of global tire majors plan to set up their tire manufacturing facilities in Indonesia in the coming years owing to emerging opportunities in the country's tire industry. Two-wheeler tire segment is the most dominating tire segment in Indonesia in volume terms, followed by passenger car tire, commercial vehicle tire and OTR tire and three-wheeler tire segments. Two-wheeler tire segment is projected to continue dominating Indonesia's tire market in the coming years owing to a large number of low and middle income individuals opting for two wheelers as a preferred mode of transportation. Large and increasing two-wheeler fleet size, improving transport infrastructure in the country and favorable political environment are expected to fuel future growth in Indonesia's tire market over the next five years. "Java and Sumatra are the major contributors to the Indonesian tire market. Being the centers of economic and commercial activities in the country, these regions cumulatively account for majority of Indonesia's automobile fleet,and consequently, are the largest tire markets in the country. Both, Java and Sumatra, are expected to maintain their dominance in the country's tire market during the forecast period. ", said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research based global management consulting firm. "Indonesia Tyre Market Forecast &Opportunities, 2020" has evaluated the future growth potential of Indonesia tire market and provides statistics and information on market structure, exports, imports and future growth of Indonesia tire market.
