Drive Over Tread Depth System

Hunter-Drive-Over-Tread-SystemHunter Engineering Co.’s Quick Tread drive over tread depth system uses point cloud technology to automatically measure the tread depth of each tire without a time loss, according to the company. The unit detects tread grooves to report up to six measurements per tire. Results are displayed on the console and also presented on an easy-to-understand printout that recommends tire replacement by showing a 3D model of the customer’s tread.

Quick Tread is built for a shop environment and features powder-coated stainless steel to resist corrosion. According to the manufacturer, all measurements are processed on-site in seconds by Hunter’s award-winning WinAlign software. Quick Tread also stores all tread depth records to create a customer history for the tire retailer’s marketing efforts.

Available for order later this year, the new drive over tread depth unit can be added to existing Hunter Quick Check systems or installed as a standalone system.
