Every 8.5 seconds a wheel/tire assembly leaves the assembly line of the automotive supplier Dirks Group in Emden. The plant, which was delivered by our mechanical engineering subsidiary Schenck, fills the tire with air using an inflation ring - it only takes a split second. Digital monitoring ensures the right filling pressure.
