Eden Prairie, Minnesota--MTS Systems said it has sold a number of its newly-developed Model 860 treadwear tyre test system to an unidentified tyre maker. The company did not say how many units the deal covers, but said in a statement, "a major global tire manufacturer has placed multimillion-dollar, multi-system orders..." for the equipment.
In a prepared statement, the company said, "Designed to perform tread wear and advanced endurance testing of passenger car and light truck tires in an indoor laboratory setting, the Model 860 enables test engineers to avoid many of the drawbacks of conventional outdoor tread wear testing."
