Quality Control for Retreading Industry and New Tire Production ZEISS INTACT
Cost-saving, efficient and highly precise quality control for retreading industry and new tire production

Cost-saving, efficient and highly precise quality control

The INTACT system series from ZEISS Optotechnik is renowned for its innovative, cutting edge technology developed for the non-destructive testing of tires.

ZEISS INTACT

Features

With the patented shearography technology, material deformations in the micron range can be reliably detected. This ensures the high-precision quality control (of both new tires and tire carcasses) for maximum and economic use of resources.

Inspection of a wide variety of tire types

The ZEISS INTACT systems are used by major companies around the world to inspect a wide variety of tire types, such as passenger car, (light) truck, aircraft, and motorcycle tires. Even large OTR/EM tires for earthmoving vehicles can be reliably tested.

Objective and efficient tire quality control

Designed for particularly cost-effective production processes as well as the sustainable use of raw materials, the ZEISS INTACT systems prove their value in everyday use around the world.

Easy-to-use systems

The easy-to-use ZEISS INTACT systems can be optimally adapted to the specific production environment – our customers benefit from particularly efficient and thus cost-saving workflows.

Economic advantages

Faulty or unsuited carcasses can be rejected before purchase and further processing, so retreading companies in particular benefit from the cost savings in production and carcass procurement.

Reproducible results

The ZEISS INTACT inspection systems detect even smallest defects on tires, delivering quick, clear and reproducible results. The traceability and the easy classification of the test results based on cutting edge technologies set standards in highprecision quality control, enabling you to significantly increase your product quality and performance.

Even OTR/EM tires for earth moving machinery can be reliably inspected.

The ZEISS INTACT inspection systems detect even smallest defects on tires, delivering quick, clear and reproducible results.

Convincing with decisive advantages such as short measurement times, easy operation, automatable evaluation programs and intelligent tire handling systems, the ZEISS INTACT systems ensure objective and efficient tire quality control.

Traceability and the easy classification of the test results based on cutting edge technologies.

Especially in tire retreading, the ZEISS INTACT systems contribute to improving and maintaining a high level of product quality in various fields of application, particularly in safety-critical sectors such as the automotive, tire and aerospace industry.

The traceability and the easy classification of the test results based on cutting edge technologies set standards in highprecision quality control.

Detection of deviations

The early and accurate detection of imperfections during the production process is essential to maintain high quality standards. ZEISS INTACT shearography systems allow the detection of deviations after process modifications / adaptations, including:

  • Exchange of components
  • Temperature changes, fluctuations in the vulcanization temperature
  • Changes to the tool design / profile
  • Series production / new products
