Puzzle Mold

Puzzle mold is a new mold type that replaces the air holes of exiting tire molds with the small gaps between inner pitches. It does not leave any bent rubber, and therefore, improves the exterior quality of the tire as well as shortening the time for tire manufacturing processes.
Hankook Precision Works features the metal molding technology that can design and manufacture the puzzle mold.

Polishing Mold

A polishing mold gets semi-permanent gloss on the surface by spraying silicon-carbide powder over without leaving any damage on it.
It improves the surface roughness of the tire mold, accordingly, making the tire exterior equivalent to that of a global top-tier tire manufacturer.
