Singapore-Based Giti Tire says that it has brought together its global research and development to launch a series of new components under the AdvanZtech umbrella.
Giti Tire operates R&D centers in China, Indonesia, Germany, and the US, as well as a UK Tire Testing Center.
Representing close to 1,000 team members, Giti said uniting them under the AdvanZtech initiative is enabling it to utilise state of the art equipment and high technologies to create “an all-encompassing platform that considers driver needs from six key perspectives”.
Giti Tire lists the six perspectives of AdvanZtech
Quiet and Comfort
“Some noise is inevitable while driving. However, Giti Tire’s pattern noise simulation system optimises the design of its tyres to quiet down the noise from the tyre and road interaction. This technology eliminates annoying tire vibrations by combining testing, modal and transmissibility analysis, and structural analysis, improving overall ride comfort.”
“The contact area between the tyre and road provides the forces for a vehicle’s drive impacting control performance. Through simulation and test technology, Giti optimises its tyre structure – fine-tuning tire stiffness, improving grip, and optimising handling response. Giti Tire improves the dry/wet grip performance of its tyres through optimisation of compound and pattern design.”
Green and Energy Efficient
“Giti’s low rolling resistance green and eco-friendly technologies reduce energy consumption, thus saving fuel, and protecting the environment. The low rolling resistance compound reduces friction between rubber molecules, which lowers energy consumption. Computational contour deformation analyses and rolling resistance prediction technologies result in structural designs with optimised deformations. This means less heat generation, less fuel, and better protection for the environment.”
Quality and Endurance
“Tyre endurance and wear performance determine mileage and application life. Specially formulated compounds from Giti improve the strength of rubber and enhance wear resistance of the tyre. Giti also optimises tyre structure and pattern design to distribute tyre footprint friction energy evenly, thus extending tyre wear mileage.”
Safety without worry
“Giti Tire participates in leading global motorsports events and applies the technology and experience to everyday tyres. Safety performance is the core value of Giti tyres. Through in-depth research on tyre compound, pattern, and structure, Giti develops and applies safety-focused technologies that ensure strong grip and stability in all road conditions and applications.”
Smart and Innovative
“Giti is actively engaged in next generation innovative tyre technologies. The latest smart tire technologies help reveal hidden safety hazards opening new frontiers for improved safety and performance.”
