Tire manufacturers require reliable barcode reading and machine vision solutions throughout all production stages - from receiving raw materials to final assembly. When the lifecycle of a tire spans multiple locations and buildings, accurate tire identification is essential for managing compliance, work in progress, sorting and routing, and quality control. Cognex Tire Solutions integrate proprietary machine vision knowledge, identification expertise and high performance barcode reading technology into pre-configured systems that meet the requirements of the tire industry.
