Tekscan’s TireScanTM System has been named Product of the Year in the “Contact Sensors” category by Control Engineering Polska, a technical journal in Poland. The journal compares and analyzes various technologies to determine the Product of the Year for each category.
“Engineers appreciated the unique features of Tekscan’s TireScan system perfect for measurements footprints across a diverse tire portfolio. Thin and durable sensors, possibility of field and lab testing and versatile software providing graphic and data analysis have left no doubts as to which product is the best. TireScan is the best choice for engineers doing quality tests and optimizing performance of tires.” (Control Engineering Polska, June 2015)
Tekscan’s TireScan™ system is a unique tool used to capture tire footprint pressure patterns. Tire footprints can be captured statically or dynamically and are displayed as high resolution, multi-colored images of the tire contact pressure pattern in real time. The system’s intuitive, application specific graphing and image analysis software enables quantitative and qualitative analysis of the tire footprint.
Tire manufacturers and design engineers are using the TireScan system to measure the changes of a tire under different loads to improve handling and response. The system also allows manufacturers and designers insights into the tire noise, vibration, and harshness for a better understanding of road surfaces.
Able to support a wide variety of tire sizes, the TireScan is a portable, durable, and reusable system that can accurately measure tire footprints. The interface pressure data offers vital information of tread design and contact pattern to enhance product design, manufacturing, quality, and research.
Tactile pressure mapping technology has played a key role in research and development, test and measurement, and quality control applications worldwide. Learn how this technology can improve your product quality, design, and efficiency.
