    The Micro-Poise® ASTEC® FX is a complete Tire Uniformity System for measuring, grading, marking and sorting tires based on force variation, runout and sidewall appearances. This type of measurement testing most closely relates to ride disturbances that may be experienced in a moving vehicle. The ASTEC® FX test procedures and capabilities follow tire and automotive industry practices for tire uniformity testing while offering enhanced machine performance and measurement analysis.

It operates as a Stand-Alone system, or it can be combined with other Final Finish modules including the TGIS-SL®, Tire Grind Correction, Marking devices and Sorter Stations. It can also be integrated with AkroDYNE® FX Balance test station to create a single integrated system.
