AKRON, Ohio – Tires can be critical to the success of mining, construction, quarry and port operations, and they can represent a significant investment for businesses in those sectors.

To help optimize the performance of tires for these industries, the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company
has launched a significantly enhanced version of its EMTrack off-the-road (OTR) tire monitoring system, which is available to Goodyear customers worldwide.
“The completely updated Goodyear EMTrack tire performance monitoring system will enable faster, even more accurate collection of critical tire data like tread depth, inflation levels and other indicators,” said Eric Matson, global field engineering manager at Goodyear.
“The enhanced EMTrack system also offers convenient, cloud-based data storage and more robust reporting capabilities thanks to the addition of the newly introduced Goodyear EMTrack App,” he said. “This will give mining, construction, quarry and port operators an enhanced platform so they can make even more informed decisions about their valuable tire assets.”
Here’s how the Goodyear EMTrack system works:
- Trained Goodyear tire technicians perform fleet surveys, using a special Goodyear EMTrack scanning tool to capture tire inflation, tread depth and other critical measurements.
- Tire performance data automatically uploads via Bluetooth to a cloud-based platform for password protected storage and easy access.
- End users download the data into easy-to-read, customizable reports that show tire performance.
End users can view performance data for their tires across their operation and even zero in on specific tires, calculating cost-per-hour, cost-per-ton and other key metrics.
“Among other benefits, this will help end users identify, if applicable, maintenance opportunities to help ensure optimal tire performance,” Matson said. “And the information collected through Goodyear EMTrack can also help in forecasting future tire requirements.”
