A brand new automatic drive over tyre tread depth measurement system which is set to present workshops with a host of service opportunities will be launched later in the year by exclusive UK and Ireland supplier Pro-Align.
The Hunter QuickTread is a fully automated and extremely accurate system, QuickTread is a perfect tool for workshops of all sizes, helping them to easily identify cars that require replacement tyres,” explains Paul Beaurain, managing director, Pro-Align.
QuickTread is incredibly sophisticated and accurate, but importantly, very fast and easy to use too. Users simply need to drive over the system’s scanning plates at a normal workshop or walking speed and it measures a 50mm radial section of the tyre across its entire width to provide an accurate multipoint snapshot of the tyre’s condition – even if the tyre is wet.
The system is fully automated and requires no manual intervention, the ideal opportunity identifier for every workshop, measuring tread depths on both car and light commercial vehicles. The results are displayed almost immediately on a console, as well as being presented in an easy-to-understand printout that can be used by service desks to help substantiate replacement tyre sales, indicate potential misalignment issues and opportunities, or simply for owners to keep in the vehicle history file to demonstrate care of ownership.
