ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. — TireStamp Inc., a supplier of tire asset management systems for commercial fleets, has unveiled three tire maintenance service training program covering maintenance facilities, maintenance processes and procedures and tire and wheel maintenance/servicing.
TireStamp President Peggy Fisher said TireStamp's training programs differ from those offered by tire manufacturers or other independents by offering fleets advice on what opportunities they might be missing out on to improve their tire maintenance programs and reduce their costs.
"There are many tire manufacturer and tire dealer representatives that can provide fleets with scrap tire analysis services, but very few know and really understand the maintenance facility equipment requirements and correct processes that fleets should employ to get the optimum performance from their tire and wheels while working under the demands of the fleet's operations," she said
The Tire Maintenance Facility Evaluation determines if a facility is equipped for proper tire maintenance, such as having an air system for adequate capacity, plumbing requirements to ensure moisture-free air and lubrication to pneumatic tools, proper care and storage of impact and torque wrenches, federally required safety equipment, inventory of proper tools and materials for work performed, and proper maintenance of all tire-related service equipment. TireStamp said it will offer recommendations to increase productivity and efficiency.
The Tire Maintenance Processes and Procedures Evaluation helps a business ensure that proper tire maintenance procedures are being followed for tire mounting/demounting, tire inflation, tire repair, wheel maintenance, retreading, tire/wheel assembly installation on vehicles, scrap tire analysis, etc. and that all safety procedures are followed, according to the company, which will make recommendations to help eliminate tire/wheel-related problems and increase productivity and efficiency.
Training will be offered via TireStamp's certified Tire Industry Association (TIA) instructor who will train tire technicians and mechanics in the required procedures for servicing tire/wheel assemblies. Training includes the use of TIA videos, hands-on and written tests, and written verification of training for each participant, TireStamp said.
Ms. Fisher also is a columnist for Tire Business.
