Sigmavision launches 3D tyre scanner

The world’s first 3D handheld tyre measurement scanner will be the main feature of Sigmavision’s stand (4E59) at the CV Show.

The TreadReader handheld scanner is a compact and lightweight device. It is quick and easy to use and eliminates the errors associated with manual depth gauges. The scanner is positioned on one edge of a tyre and operated by sliding it across the tread face.

Accurate tread depth readings for tyres of all vehicle types, from LCVs to HGV, buses, trailers and passenger cars, can reveal badly worn or unevenly worn tyres symptomatic of problems such as wheel misalignment or worn suspension.

Colour-coded 3D scans enable tyre replacement at the best time to maximise tyre safety and present revenue opportunities to the trade from increased tyre sales or service hours.

TreadReader is suitable for wet or dirty tyres and is ideal for all tyre inspection applications such as workshops, service centres, inspection lanes, commercial vehicle yards and at the roadside.

The calculated data can be imported into any fleet management system to log tyre scans and produce wear analysis or tyre lifetime modelling.

Based in the UK, Sigmavision is a high tech company, with world class expertise in laser sensor and camera imaging technology.

Sigmavision is also working with leading industry partners to educate private motorists and business drivers about correct tyre maintenance and the need to reduce the number of road traffic accidents occurring as a result of faulty tyres
