Tire molds

EUKLID-Tire is EUKLID CAD/CAM’s industry-specific special module, generating in large extent automatically 3D-geometry and machining programs for complex tire profiles. One single function with few parameters is sufficient to describe tire profiles with mathematical precision.

A tire’s structure is quite complicated. The profile contains many individual ribs, positioned on a curved surface, making it impossible to create them with standard surface functions. Then the ribs are trimmed with each other, creating sharp convex edges and concave corners. Though it seems as if a tire profile consists of repeated, equal sections, in reality, each partial segment (pitch) has a different width, and contains compressed as well as stretched ribs.
