Tire Identification Number scanning

An image speaks more than a thousand words. Below is an example of the three steps our OCR engine takes to automatically extract TINs from documents.

Uploading documents to the API

The first step is providing a picture or a PDF file of a document containing a TIN to our API. Usually this is done from a mobile app, email, FTP or web application.

Image to text using OCR

As soon as a picture or PDF has been received, each page is converted to a TXT file. In this step all the text from the document is extracted, but it is not yet structured.

Getting JSON output from the API

The Klippa Parser takes the TXT gained from the OCR in step 2 and converts it into structured JSON using machine learning. The JSON is then returned as output from the API. The TIN and underlying information is now extracted. 

The image on the left is a simplified example of the JSON response. Information such as the TIN, brand name, production year, production week, size and certification can be derived.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does TIN OCR cost?
The pricing structure for Klippa TIN capturing depends on the amount of documents. Both pay per use and monthly licenses are available. Get in contact with our product specialists to get an exact quote.
What TIN standards are supported?
Well, the most important TIN that we support is the so-called DOT number. This number is molded into the sidewall of the tire and allows the identification of the tire and its age. The DOT code is mandated by the U.S. Department of Transportation but is used worldwide. The code is also useful in identifying tires subject to product recall or at end of life due to age.

In case you wonder if we support a certain TIN or have any other question, feel free to contact us.

Did you know that apart from TIN numbers, Klippa’s OCR can scan other types of data fields, such as car titles, license plates and VIN numbers
What kind of clients are using Klippa?
Klippa’s engine extracts as much data as possible from documents via OCR and machine learning. We support many different types of clients, because our engine is so versatile. 

It is most commonly used by clients in the automotive, logistics and transportation sector.
What languages does Klippa support?
All European languages are supported. Our engine performs best on documents in English, Dutch, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Hebrew and French. Other languages can be supported on request, we’d just need to train our machine learning models.
Is Klippa TIN capturing GDPR-compliant?
All the services that Klippa offers are fully GDPR-compliant. By default, we use ISO-certified servers within the European Union for processing. If you are not located within the EU, we can also set up servers in a region of choice. 

Next to that, a data processor agreement is in place. We do not store any of your or your customers’ data after processing.
Can Klippa convert documents to CSV, XLSX, XML or JSON?
Yes we can. Klippa takes pictures of documents, or their PDF equivalents, and converts them to readable text using OCR. From there we use machine learning to turn the text into structured data. Most of the time we use JSON for this, but depending on your preferences we can also convert documents to CSV, XLSX or XML.
Please feel free to ask all your questions.
