Caption: Tyre factory. Worker loading an unfinished tyre into a curing machine at a factory that makes vehicle tyres. All of the separate components of each tyre are assembled in the tyre-building machine. This machine heats the tyre to mould all of the markings and traction patterns, as well as bonding all the tyre's components together. This is called vulcanising. After a few finishing and inspection procedures, the tyre is finished. Photographed at Michelin Tyre PLC, Dundee, Scotland, UK.
