Hunter Engineering Company showcased its next-generation drive over tire tread depth measuring tool, Quick Tread Edge at the recent SEMA Show.

According to Dino Hatz, Business Development Manager, Hunter Engineering Company, the QTE will be launched worldwide in the first quarter of 2019.

Delivering detailed tire condition diagnosis in less time and with added edge wear detection, Quick Tread Edge provides a greater overall tire condition analysis. ASPs can now better identify tire wear on the ‘edge’ of every tire, while providing customers with informative, in-depth inspection results.

“When a vehicle is moving, a worn edge is actually in contact with the road and cannot shed water during wet conditions, resulting in a loss of traction,” noted Hunter Product Manager, Alex Smith. “A worn inner-edge may be invisible to advisors on the service drive, making automatic edge wear detection a critical piece in providing a complete summary of a tire’s overall tread depth.”

Quick Tread Edge can be installed as a standalone unit with two mounting options, or integrated in a flush mount configuration with Hunter’s touchless alignment inspection system, Quick Check Drive. Quick Tread Edge introduces a durable, pedestal-free design, allowing service providers maximized shop space.

Both systems are connected with HunterNet , which automatically displays digital inspection findings through Flightboard, allowing customers to quickly see their results first-hand. Quick Tread Edge is also compatible with Hunter’s automatic vehicle identification system, Quick ID.
