One of the highlights of AES’ exhibition at Road Transport Expo 2023 was the introduction of their revolutionary TreadReader HD. This compact handheld 3D scanner has completely transformed tire tread depth measurement for all types of commercial vehicles. The TreadReader HD employs patented tire measurement technology, generating detailed 3D scans of each tire with an impressive 320,000 measurement points. With a remarkable accuracy of less than 0.2mm or 0.008 inches, the TreadReader HD surpasses traditional dip gauges and non-contact “laser pointer” measurement devices in terms of precision and reliability.
The TreadReader HD produces highly detailed 3D images that provide a comprehensive view of tire tread conditions. This advanced device empowers service providers to accurately assess tire wear, identify potential issues, and recommend appropriate maintenance or replacements.
To simplify the process, the TreadReader HD comes with TreadManager, a user-friendly cloud-based management platform available for Android® and iOS® devices. This application guides users through the scanning process, streamlines setup, and facilitates data storage for easy access to reports. There are no additional costs or ongoing subscription fees associated with the TreadManager platform.
The integration of the TreadReader HD HandHeld with the TreadManager platform offers a comprehensive tire management solution. The cloud-based system allows service managers to store tire scans, view comprehensive reports, print necessary documentation, and effortlessly share data via email. The TreadManager platform not only enhances service productivity but also opens new opportunities for increasing sales.
