Fully automated measuring point checks the condition of the tyres the k.-H. Schneider GmbH together with the Waldshut Talamoi ProContour GmbH invested in environmental protection and maximum safety for truck: a fully automated measuring point and the checking of the condition of the tires is available in immediately CLASSIS on the grounds of the Europa-Park medicate on the A5 in Herbolzheim,. Professionals and traffic experts are impressed by functionality, the exact measurement, as well as quick data capture. Every six minutes a tyre bursts on Germany’s roads. Drives almost every truck tires with air pressure is too low and many are on the road with little profile. But checking tyres is time consuming, little comfortable and often only restricted reliably, since the vehicles are constantly in use. The result is a high fuel consumption, an excessive tyre wear, unforeseen downtime due to punctures, as well as in the worst case an accident.

CLASSIS measuring points are based on a multiple patented measuring process and allow for the slow passage of a truck a tire condition testing. In addition to the tire inflation pressure, tread depth, the image of the abrasion and the axle load are measured. “We are convinced of the sustainability of this automatic tyre condition monitoring and therefore offer the first freely accessible measuring station with us,” explains Karl-Heinz Schneider, operator of the Europa-Park medicate in Herbolzheim. The system provides many benefits all involved. So, environment and society benefit from increasing road safety in the traffic and a significantly lower environmental impact of less CO2.

The driver is on the road with more security and looks forward to relaxed controls. Freight forwarders and fleet operators can CLASSIS reduce costs and optimize processes. “And this means an important addition to the range of services for our rest complex”, Karl-Heinz Schneider added. In addition to Herbolzheim are planned for 2011 already 10 more installations throughout Germany, which quickly creates a nationwide network of 90 stations.
