tyres in motion

the one-stop shop for tyre measurement, modelling and research

testing. simulation. research.

Whether testing, simulation or pure research topics - the tire technology team at fka bundles all the necessary skills to answer your questions about the tire. Thanks to our extensive test bench infrastructure and simulation tools, we take a holistic approach to the subject of tires.

From the analysis of the data and the fitting of the models to the measurement of all necessary input data for almost all common simulation models on our test benches, we offer the entire process chain from a single source.

Thanks to our comprehensive test bench infrastructure with a wide variety of tire test rigs, we can offer complete measurement procedures for characterizing tires or parameterizing simulation models, especially for FTire and Magic Formula.

In addition, we also carry out tailor-made measurements and tests for non-standardized requirements with almost every tire under various conditions.
