NATEQ TPMS Tools, LC, leader of TPMS Tool solutions for the OE, Industrial, and Aftermarket industries, and Anyline, innovator of mobile data capture technology, has announced a partnership that will propel the TPMS industry forward with new data-capturing technology.
Enhanced Tyre Pressure Management the Shared Goal of Both Groups
Anyline’s advanced optical character recognition (OCR) solutions for the automotive aftermarket will be integrated into ATEQ’s TPMS tools, enabling technicians to instantly scan tyre DOT codes, as well as vehicle identification numbers (VIN) and license plates.
The automotive aftermarket industry has seen tremendous growth in technology over the past ten years. Due to vehicle technology advancements, tool manufacturers have needed a faster, more accurate way to keep up with market demands. In collaboration with Anyline, ATEQ will be able to deliver the highest quality TPMS tools for the aftermarket.
Bruno Rousseau, Global TPMS Manager, said of the partnership: “We are very excited to join forces with Anyline to offer OCR scanning for tyre and vehicle data on our devices. Anyline’s best-in-class mobile data capture technology helps us in our journey to bringing a complete tyre service solution to our top-of-the-line ATEQ VT67 TPMS service tool.”
He added: “ATEQ tools have been designed to achieve the fastest TPMS jobs turnaround in the industry. We now want to extend this to other tyre services. We tested many OCR technologies for DOT, VIN and license plate recognition. In-house OCR technologies used by our competitors are inaccurate and slow. Using the ATEQ VT67 built-in, high-quality camera, and Anyline OCR technology, technicians will be able to comply with DOT registration with maximum accuracy to optimise multiple workflows, ensuring the fastest turnaround speed on the market.”

This November 2-5th at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the partnership will go live. Christoph Braunsberger, Managing Director of Anyline Inc. concluded the news by saying: “The pioneering innovation of ATEQ TPMS Tools has been the driving force of digital transformation for the automotive aftermarket. We are proud to partner with the number one world supplier in the TPMS field to empower technicians with instant, accurate and automated data capture technology.”
