In the early 1990's CTI was contracted to build control technology for tire uniformity machines (TUO). CTI soon licensed and eventually purchased this and other technologies, refined it, and now offers its TTOC TUO controller and the laser-based TSAS - Tire Surface Analysis System to the tire industry to improve cycle time, increase testing accuracy, and reduce down time.
Innovation continued with the development of applications to manage these systems—applications that allow CTI and our customers to monitor, configure and support our control systems real-time, from anywhere in the world.
CTI proudly provides the TDAQ family of products
to complement our TTOC6 controller
in the task of tire data acquisition. Performing data acquisition physically closer to the source results in stronger and cleaner signals, bringing about a substantial increase in resolution. In the almost 10 years since our first TDAQ deployment, nearly 400 have been installed and only 10 have had failures!!
Today, in addition to continuously redefining and modernizing our control systems we’ve expanded our offerings to include advanced analytics and Business Intelligence software. After seeing the performance gains CTI achieved for the retail and financial community, we’re excited about helping our tire manufacturing customers improve operations management with Manufacturing Intelligence. Of course, adoption of BI/MI strategies can result in the need to store and manage vast amounts of data. To mitigate that cost and assist our BI/MI clients we’ve added data hosting as a service.
