About us

Big enough to solve your testing questions.Small enough to pay individual attention.

OUR ASPIRATION

"We get going when others stop."

Our stated goal is the effective and efficient simplification of defined process monitoring applications, as well as the process diagnosis in production machines and plants. EASY AREA, our LED-based Vision sensor system, offers a reliable alternative to line-based laser sensor systems – especially in the case of large fields of view.

“ CST-Vision sensor system solutions pursue an unconventional approach and change the way things are viewed: What was previously reserved for laser sensors is now put in a different light with our EASY AREA LED technology. ”

— Frank Schäfer, CEO / managing director

OUR EXPERTISE

"It's not enough to simply have good ideas,you should also know how you can make them happen."

CST stands for optical dimension and surface measurement technology innovations that are developed by superbly trained teams and supported by interdisciplinary experts, who work in research, development and the field and have many years of application experience. Our patented 3D “One-Shot” surface measurement technology, which uses LED and embedded 3D cameras, is already considered to be a trailblazer in the tire industry.

“ Using the combined expertise in physics and software engineering, CST develops new ways to improve process monitoring and diagnostics technologies: With EASY AREA, we generate both 3D and live images– at the lowest cost per data point ... ”

OUR EXPERIENCE

"Experience is the best teacher.You always get one-on-one classes."

Having been active in the research and application development of tread depth measurement systems, we know and are able to compare the beneficial and less beneficial characteristics of laser and LED-based Vision sensors from experience: LED-based Vision systems from CST are being used worldwide in the tire replacement business – even in the toughest conditions.

“ Experience is not just the sum of all mistakes ... most of all, it is a continuous repetition of trial and error. Because that is the only way to distinguish what works and what doesn't. Innovation is always the result of consistent repetition. ”
