Laser marking systems supplier 4JET Technologies (Alsdorf, Germany) and industrial company service partner LY-Holding (Michelstadt, Germany) have entered into strategic agreement under which LY-Holding will offer tire factories and onsite cleaning services for tire molds using 4JET laser systems.
The service allows tire plants to use laser technology without making an initial investment. LY-Holding will install a 4JET laser system in a European tire plant within the first half of 2018. The companies expect to significantly expand their cooperation, leveraging LY-Holding's growing global presence in over 40 tire manufacturing facilities.
