Independent tyre retreader Bandvulc has come up with an intelligent solution to future tyre labelling worries by incorporating a QR code onto all of its new labels.

From November 2012, European legislation will require all new tyres to carry labels to better inform customers of the efficiency, grip and noise of a particular model.

By adding a QR code to a tyre’s label that same information will be available to customers and fitters using a mobile device to electronically read data about the tyre. As well as helping customers when purchasing, Bandvulc says the system will prevent the need for completing paper jobsheets and improve automatic stock adjustments for depots.

Bandvulc will be demonstrating their new tyre labelling system on their stand at this year’s CV Show.
