Inspection & Testing

Tyre Testing System – Shearography tire test systems


The Shearography tire test systems have been developed for the non-destructive testing of new tires in R&D and quality control, as well as for the inspection of tire carcasses in the retreading industry. The technical basis of the systems is the phase shearography system.

During the test cycle, a pressure difference (vacuum, eg 50mbar) is generated in the vacuum chamber, thereby inducing deformations which are caused by the
expansion of the air pockets occurring in faulty areas in a tire carcass. With the phase shearography technique- a holographic measurement method which reliably detects material deformations in the range of microns- faulty areas can be localized clearly and reproducibly.

The tire test systems have successfully proven their functionality in the worldwide car, truck and aircraft industries, as well as in the Formula 1 racing tire business.

Ferlex Chamber

Ferlex is continuously working to supply the market with top premium quality products. For this reason, its policy is focused on the production growth and improvement.

The experience in producing over two thousand autoclaves for a number of different purposes is certified by the satisfaction and loyalty of our clients. At least, this is the result of over 30 years of continued work and learning.

Ferlex manufactures autoclaves from light truck to OTR tyre and ranging from 6-tyre to 30-tyre.

With safety, quality and breakthrough technology, Ferlex autoclaves provide your production line with high output and uniformity. They may be manufactured at a number of different sizes and configurations, according to the characteristics of the facilities and production volumes of the customer.

  • Radial Locking Door: Easy, fast and light opening and closing movement requiring no levers, pistons, or other maintenance generating mechanisms. The radial system avoids friction with the trim, and decreases wear
  • Encapsulated Motor: Since the motor is installed encapsulated externally, it is operating in lower temperature but working at the same pressure; the motor needs no mechanical seal, motor pulley and fan belts, thus the autoclave fan are running more efficiently and less maintenance cost
  • Internal Thermal Insulation: As the device body requires no heating, its operating time is shorter, and the process faster, thus increasing the output, and enabling great power or steam economy
  • Electric Control Board: Set up with high quality components, it provides higher reliability and easy replacement. The electric control board further provides accurate control of the vulcanization greatness, thus securing repeatability of the conditions in all working cycles
  • Kit EPS (Third Pressure): Introduces a positive pressure into the tread design, thereby causing it to be set over the casing more firmly. Increases the envelope life time, distributes the connection evenly, and prevents connection deformation
  • Double Heating (Optional): The autoclave may be supplied with double heating means, and work either with electric resistances or steam heat exchanger
