Sailun Tires has made great strides in the tire industry despite its short history. Sailun currently invests approximately one third of its resources in research and development. In 2009, Sailun, together with the Qingdao University of Science and Technology, were nominated to develop a National Tire Process and Control Engineering Technology Research Center to build the optimal technical research platform to promote tire technology. Key technical issues in the tire manufacturing process are studied and solved to move the tire industry forward in the quest for improved technology and the production of a high quality product.
Sailun is the first tire manufacturer to integrate production, research, and product demonstration into the development of new products. Utilizing both BPSO design technology and three-dimensional design visualization to reduce the tire design period and improve overall quality. Sailun's computerized tire production and manufacturing process in conjunction with management techniques and network control systems allows it to effectively monitor quality control, resource management, marketing, administration and logistics.
In addition, Sailun uses advance information technology to help trace the data of each tire produced, and benchmarking against leading international standards of quality and design.
Quality assurance is of utmost importance to Sailun and its advancement in the industry. Its mandate encompasses all aspects of the organization such that all processes are measured and monitored to ensure the integrity and quality of all raw materials meet specifications. Sailun Tires' advanced tracking system records the status and state of every single tire produced at the factory, from creation to customer shipment.
