Tire sidewall
testing system

How it all began with the first generation of the tire wall testing system (RFP-1) in 1982...

Seichter GmbH

... filed a patent application in 1981 for the first sensor for automated inspection of tire geometry.

As a pioneer in the field of measurement technology and tire inspection, Seichter is today one of the world’s leading suppliers of state-of-the-art measuring machines in the area of final inspection of tires and wheels.

The automotive industry’s requirements for tires and wheels are growing steadily, and electric cars are reinforcing this trend. In addition, tires are also becoming larger in diameter and flatter in cross-section. In the tire industry, this leads automatically to increasing demands on measuring machines.

As a result, our portfolio of measuring machines and analysis parameters is constantly growing. Our Made in Germany range of services extends from the individual measuring machine to a complete test line.


Launch auf the new Geometry system called GEOtwin. First system in the market were all evaluations are based on a Digital Twin.
