TGIS-SL®

  • TGIS-SL® (Tire Geometry Inspection System with Sheet of Light) +


    The TGIS-SL® is a Micro-Poise geometry system that allows operators a complete sidewall inspection in one revolution.  This allows the operator to inspect for any anomalies in the tires and tire & wheel assemblies, such as bulges or depressions that would compromise the integrity of a tire.  With the scanning ability to view sidewalls with excessive lettering and designs more accurately and to send that information faster and further with the availability of Ethernet connection, the TGIS-SL® is a complete geometry inspection system that complements a multitude of Micro-Poise uniformity and dynamic balance machines.

    The TGIS-SL® has the largest measurement area and field view, fastest scanning, and highest resolution of any similar sensor on the market, using AkroSCAN™ technology.  Only one revolution is required to accurately scan a tire for imperfections.  The TGIS-SL® maximizes throughput of inspected tires.

    TGIS-SL® currently has the capability to fit these passenger and light truck testing machines:


    For Truck and Bus tire manufacturers, the TGIS-SLT™ (Tire Geometry Inspection System with Sheet of Light for Truck) has the capability to fit these Truck/Bus Tire testing machines:
