Sigmavision exhibiting at Automechanika Reifen Frankfurt
Sigmavision exhibiting TreadReader 3D Tyre measurement at Automechanika Reifen Hall 12.1
Automechanika Frankfurt is a global exhibition on a vast scale. Visitors should be sure to see first hand the TreadReader Drive Over Ramp and Hand Held scanner being demonstrated live each day of the exhibition. This special 25th Anniversary event of the Frankfurt exhibition incorporates Reifen Hall 12.1, focusing on tyres, tyre management systems and sales equipment. Sigmavision is located in Hall 12.1, Stand C31. Hall 12.1 connects Automechanika Halls 8 and 11.
TreadReader technology produces a 3 dimensional image of a vehicle’s tyre tread depth. The technology is already used by global tyre manufacturers, including Continental, Nokian Tyres and garage equipment supplier Hunter Engineering. No other system on the global market produces 3D images, which also diagnose any wheel misalignment or incorrect tyre inflation. TreadReader products are available globally from Sigmavision and their network of distributors.
If you are attending Automechanika and want to see TreadReader products for yourself, you can book a meeting with the Sigmavision team at the show.
Global launch of online TreadManager Tyre Management Service
Sigmavision is launching a new TreadManager™ Service at Automechanika. Developed for the tyre aftermarket, the service will increase tyre sales revenue and boost turnover from tyre-related services. TreadManager™ reports tyre measurement data and management information for all vehicles scanned using TreadReader tyre measurement devices.
Stand visitors will see a demonstration of the Service, and the TreadManager™ reports, which identify vehicles needing replacement tyres, or showing uneven tyre wear. The reports contain the distinctive TreadReader 3D tyre scans, which very quickly build trust between vehicle owner and tyre provider. Multiple scans for the same vehicle over time can be tracked to predict tyre lifetime and advise vehicle owners when to book in for replacement tyres.
For larger workshops and Dealer locations using one or more TreadReader devices, TreadManager™ will track activity levels by device and by technician. Also intended for multiple workshop locations, or multi-franchised dealerships, TreadManager™ offers a Group User profile, for reporting across any number of technicians, workshops and franchises.
