The INTACT system series from ZEISS Optotechnik is renowned for its innovative, cutting edge technology developed for the non-destructive testing of tires.

With the patented shearography technology, material deformations in the micron range can be reliably detected. This ensures the high-precision quality control essential for a consistent product quality and highest safety standards.

The INTACT systems are used by major companies around the world to inspect a wide variety of tire types, such as passenger car, (light) truck, aircraft, and motorcycle tires. Even large OTR/EM tires for earthmoving vehicles can be reliably tested.

The easy-to-use INTACT systems can be optimally adapted to the specific production environment – our customers benefit from particularly efficient and thus cost-saving workflows.
The shearography test and inspection systems provide an indispensable tool for the advancement of state-of-the-art manufacturing processes to support ever new emerging requirements and materials. In outgoing inspection, the systems assure fully documented product quality meeting high standards.

Designed for particularly cost-effective production processes as well as the sustainable use of raw materials, the INTACT systems prove their value in everyday use around the world.

The INTACT inspection systems detect even smallest defects on tires, delivering quick, clear and reproducible results. The traceability and the easy classification of the test results based on cutting edge technologies set standards in high-precision quality control, enabling you to significantly increase your product quality and performance.

By making use of the INTACT systems you will not only enhance the product quality – the use of shearography technology also offers economic advantages. Short test times, ease of use, and automated evaluation software combined with intelligent tire handling systems result in a highly efficient and objective inspection process.

The early and accurate detection of imperfections during the production process is essential to maintain high quality standards. The INTACT shearography systems allow the detection of deviations after process modifications/adaptations, including:

  • Exchange of components
  • Temperature changes, fluctuations in the vulcanization temperature
  • Changes to the tool design / profile
  • Series production / new products
