Vehicle Management Corp. (VMC) has announced its partnership with TyreSafe Australia (TSA) to provide over 100 sets of tyre-pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) to a major mining group. The systems include a package of VMC’s enTIRE PressureNet software reading data from TyreSafe Australia’s PressurePro tyre sensors.
Mark Fernie, VMC, said: “The collaboration will provide greater efficiency, safety and return on investment for the companies’ joint clients.”
VMC are the developers of the Tyre and Rim Management software range used in mining, port and transport applications. TSA provides TPMS equipment and management services for all vehicle users from every day recreational and commercial drives, on road transport, heavy duty port equipment and mining trucks with giant tyres.
The collaboration engages VMC’s enTIRE PressureNet, a full TPMS office backend and powerful telematics, with PressurePro’s real time monitoring of tyres as well as vehicle location, speed and altitude. Email and SMS alerts can be generated automatically to appropriate personnel when readings are outside of set parameters. The system can be applied to all tyre sizes, from on road transport to 4 m high giant mining tyres.
Following extensive onsite testing, the mining group’s management team elected to install the haulage fleet with VMC’s software reporting data from sensors provided by TSA. TSA utilises the data generated from enTIRE PressureNET to provide guidance for clients to optimize the tyre usage, which when cmbined with reduced operating costs, provides positive return on investment.
The software integrates into VMC’s complete Tyre and Rim Data Management software, enTIRE Wheels, to provide clients with full functionality and tyre/rim reporting for operational, safety and economic dividends. This data helps prove the safe operation of tyres.
Commenting on the collaboration, Fernie said: “VMC has worked closely with TSA to develop an easy to use integrated TPMS system which can also be interfaced into the Tyre and Rim Management System enTIRE Wheels. Clients are expecting independent TPMS systems and ownership of the data, which is what enTIRE PressureNET offers.”
Gosling added: “Understanding and ensuring the safe operation of TSA’s clients’ fleet’s tyres is the companies modus operandi and that is why this collaboration effort with VMC is important. The motto of ‘if they’re not turning, they’re not earning’ has never been more critical to the success of industries using pneumatic tyres as the foundation of their operations.”
