KM Berstorff gets the measure of electrostatic tire strips

Hanover, Germany – KraussMaffei Berstorff has developed a non-contact measuring system for checking the conductivity of chimney strips.

Incorporating carbon black, the strips are added to the tread profile of silica-reinforced tires to eliminate electrostatic charge via road-contact.

KM Berstorff’s new C-Check system is designed to measure in-line conductivity of the profile directly after extrusion, said a 21 March company statement.

The technology, it claims, enables “in-process detection” of material defects and transmits a warning signal in real-time to operators and the control system.

“The chimney strip has a…
