TriScan Tire

TST - TriScan Tire

360° profile measurement system for tires and rims

TriScanTire combines important functions in one device. It is designed for 3D tread analysis, profile measurements and the recording of a 2D cross-sectional profile for car and truck tires.

Field of application

R&D- and Quality departments of tire and automobile manufacturers, as well as independent test institutes use it for tire development, first tire qualifica-tion, competitor studies, steady tire quality assurance. 


A laser point triangulation sensor is moved around the tire by a x- and y-linear axis and additionally rotatable around its own axis so that the tire shape is measured from bead to bead to gather a 2D section measurement.

For circumference measurement the sensor is stopped at a certain position while the tire/wheel is rotated by the precise balanced tire driver unit. The sensor signal is triggered by the encoder pulses 8192 times, resulting in a high resolution scan along one track.

To achieve the 3D map, the sensor is moved some millimeters (or even less) step by step after each turn and executing the aforementioned circumference measurement for multiple tracks.
