Quality Control for New Tire Production and Retreading Industry 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 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 casing) for maximum and economic use of resources.

Inspection of a wide variety of tire types

ZEISS INTACT systems are used by major companies around the world to inspect a wide variety of tire types, such as passenger car (PCR), light truck / truck and bus (LT/TBR), aircraft, and motorcycle tires. 

Objective and efficient tire quality control

Designed for particularly cost-effective production processes as well as the sustainable use of raw materials, 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

ZEISS INTACT assures the use of suitable casings for the retreading process. Thereby, retreading companies benefit from cost savings in production and reduction of claim rates. 

Reproducible results

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 and provide management information, enabling you to significantly increase your product quality and efficiency.

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, 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, 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 defects

The early and accurate detection of imperfections during the production process is essential to maintain high quality standards and increase the efficiency and profitability. ZEISS INTACT shearography systems allow the detection of defects, e.g. caused by:

  • Exchange of raw materials / change of rubber compounds
  • Negative impacts beyond a well-controlled production process (e.g. foreign objects)
  • Changes in curing temperature or curing time; problems caused by malfunctioning presses
  • Changes related to tread or mold designs
  • Product modifications; new tire development; serial production
