The 4Jet group from Alsdorf, Germany, acquired the TIS testing systems business unit for tires and wheels from Hennecke Systems.

The TIS tire inspection systems are based on Hennecke Systems’ comprehensive know-how in industrial image processing and enable optical 2D and 3D inspection of tire treads, sidewalls, rims and mounted wheels. DOT codes, colour stripes and tire profiles can be read out in a reliable manner and in market leading speed.

With this transaction, 4Jet complements its portfolio of proprietary solutions for tire traceability, such as the Scannect QR Code technology, thus strengthening its own competence in the field of machine vision.
The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
