Tire and Wheel Systems
Code reading, sorting and automated inspection of wheels and tires
Cognex tire solutions deliver robust, high-speed, wheel identification using propriety code-reading algorithms that are able to reliably locate codes despite random placement and orientation of wheels on a conveyor. Alphanumeric character reading vision tools enable tire manufacturers to read codes in the most challenging conditions with very high accuracy. Patented PatMax geometric pattern matching tools learn tire tread patterns and have the flexibility to adapt to the positional variation of tires on a conveyor, ensuring that manufacturers assemble the correct wheel to a vehicle.
