The new Total Shop Solutions (TSS) TreadReader handheld mobile scanner does not require an internet connection to perform a complete tire scan.
“Our new TreadReader handheld scanner is a rugged, compact and lightweight mobile device that can help shops provide thorough tire inspection services with reliable accuracy,” said Leandro Camargo, product manager for Snap-on.
Using the TSS TreadReader is a three-step process: enter the license plate or VIN number of the vehicle, scan each tire and then view the scan details.
The TreadReader mobile app provides instructional guidance for the user throughout the scanning process. When the scan is complete, a summary screen is presented, showing 3D details of the scanned tires, including tread depth and information about the tire’s condition.
Besides,TreadReader is designed to precisely measure tires when they are dirty and ignore anomalies, such as wear bars or stones, that could lead to false readings.
It is suited for all tire inspection applications in workshops, service centers, inspection lanes, vehicle depots, mobile tire fitters and roadside inspections, and it can be used in open areas or a confined workshop environment.
All readings are saved to the TreadManager cloud software and are available to view when a connection to the internet is made. Multiple results can be stored until there is a connection and customizable reports are available.
