PNEUSCAN as a maintenance tool

English

The advantages of PNEUSCAN are more than obvious.
The system not only saves money on proactive maintenance: it reduces fuel consumption, lowers carbon emissions, increases tire life and improves durability. Breakdowns caused by poor tires become largely a thing of the past!

Zitat: 

A tire monitoring system provides the fleet with several advantages. By monitoring the tire, meaning pressure, tread depth and the wear pattern of the tire, it is possible to plan economically. Because only a tire with a proper air pressure is in the right condition to do more kilometers, is on an efficient and energy-saving path will be able to be used energy-efficiently and is also able to offer puncture resistance.

Higher productivity in fleet maintenance

Tire checks have never been easier! The good old manometer has outlived its usefulness. PNEUSCAN’s automatic delivery of tire conditions allows fleet maintenance to focus on other issues, rather than handling the tedious and manual process of checking tires. The automated tire inspection system PNEUSCAN supports the service personnel during their fleet maintenance tasks. Tire pressure and tread depth are reliably measured within seconds. The measurement process is optimized and the measuring results are assigned to the vehicle data record. With PNEUSCAN technology in place, annoying and time-consuming manual tire checking will become a thing of the past. The workload for employees in the workshop is reduced. It is not necessary anymore conducting repetitive manual measurement of tire conditions thus increasing capacities.

Tire issues are indicated immediately, can be resolved and hence further damages to the tire and possible breakdowns be prevented.

Fuel consumption reduction by up to 5%
Text: 

The tire pressure is a key factor for the tires' rolling friction. When set to the right level, the rolling friction reaches its optimum thus reducing fuel consumption and CO2-emissions. Since this effect directly scales with fleet size, companies with large fleets will benefit from correct tire pressures significantly. Studies have shown that round about 20 - 30% of the tires are not set to the right tire pressure. PNEUSCAN, as an automated tire inspection system, supports the customer in maintaining their fleets' tires at an optimum level. Therefore PNEUSCAN will not only contribute to a reduction in fuel consumption but also helps the environment by lowering CO2-emissions.

Increased tire lifetime by up to 25%
Text: 

The tire pressure has a significant effect on the tires' lifespan. A change in pressure, either upward or downward, accelerates tire wear.. Only a correct pressure will keep the tire in shape and thus causing an even, slow wear of the tire tread. By using PNEUSCAN identifies tires with poor inflation or low tread depth – and allows for quick servicing– so tires stay in service longer. If corrected early on, deteriorating effects to the tires can be minimized and prolong the expected use of the tires. Therefore automated, regularly conducted tire inspections provided by PNEUSCAN are key to such an optimization process. It enables the service staff to replace worn tires just at the right time. Hence the lifetime capacity of the tires is used to the fullest and money saved.

Increased road safety
Text: 

Tire conditions play a significant role when it comes to road safety. Vehicle traction and handling are at their best when tires are inflated properly and fully treaded. An incorrect tire pressure or a worn tire means is a risk to all road traffic participants. An increased braking distance for example may be the result. Driver assistance systems in modern cars, trucks and buses rely on well kept tire conditions as well, in order to perform most effectively. PNEUSCAN ensures safety fully automated and within seconds with every crossing of the vehicle. In fact, with PNEUSCAN, the process of tire checking is so simple, companies can check often and improve safety for everyone on the road.

Supporting your internal QA process
Text: 

PNEUSCAN supplies a process for inspecting your tires. It can easily be integrated into your current workflow. By inspecting the tire conditions on a regular basis, a constant, high level quality can be assured. This leads to less tire-related problems concerning your fleet. What's more, PNEUSCAN will archive and document the measurement results - even across multiple locations. By means of an additional software feature, tickets can be generated, triggering actions based on the kind of tire condition. Warnings and e. g. work assignments can be submitted. It furthermore enables you to proactively plan your tire stock.

Fewer vehicle breakdowns by up to 70%
Text: 

A third of all truck breakdowns can be traced back to tire issues. Unexpected breakdowns are dangerous, inconvenient, and costly for customers, drivers and fleet owners. Especially slow punctures that are normally easy to miss, are reliably detected in a very early stage by means of PNEUSCAN. The automated tire inspection system keeps a constant record of tire conditions to help fleet maintenance monitor and correct impending problems. Customers report a reduction of up to 70% of tire-related breakdowns.

Improved retreading conditions
Text: 

Most heavy-duty tires are designed to be retread for longer life. Iit is important that the tire´s carcass quality is kept at a high level by adjusting the tire pressure to the correct value - no problem with PNEUSCAN´s regular and automated inspections. Early-on recognition of pressure loss and a long-term and anticipatory replacement strategy add up to optimum remolding possibilities. This way it helps to reduce costs for new tire replacements and is an environmental–friendly practice.

 

With PNEUSCAN all your tires are inspected by mere crossing over the system. There are no modifications to the vehicle nor to the tires needed, thus making PNEUSCAN independent from tire or vehicle manufacturers. The system has been constantly and sustainably improved over the last years. It offers significant advantages to the customer when it comes to managing tires and their conditions.
