AKRON — CIMS Inc. has collaborated with Autel Intelligent Technology Corp. to upgrade their joint tire registration scanning system, ITS600.
"The ability to scan the TIN (tire identification number) gives our customers additional security and accuracy elements that eliminate the potential mistakes and documentation of invalid tire identification numbers," Jeff Coffman, CIMS' vice president of sales and marketing, said.
"This new capability enables a fully automated tire registration process that is cost effective and convenient," he said.
"Partnering with Autel for this upgrade allows CIMS to give tire dealers another economical but still leading-edge option to register tires. The ability to scan the TIN to register, check for recalls and confirm tire age on Autel's tool will increase the number of tire dealers registering tires resulting in a consumer safety win."
In addition to tire registration, the Autel ITS600 can perform TPMS diagnostics, sensor programming and vehicle re-learns.
"The compact wireless ITS600 creates a seamless workflow that can help our customers remain in complete compliance with DOT registration mandates," John Amato, Autel's director of training, said.
