Trelleborg Wheel Systems introduced its newest range of tire solutions in this year’s BAUMA in Munich, Germany.
The company said these new designs and system can enhance productivity in critical applications and to make the lives of operators easier in the most demanding environments.
The Multi-Purpose Bias Tire, the MPX TB premium construction pneumatic, is designed for telehandler and compact loader applications in the most demanding environments, providing improved traction, better wear resistance and greater stability on all ground surfaces.
The new Trelleborg Phoenix TPMS system, engineered for construction applications, is a cloud-based system which integrates tire sensors, a central gateway on the machine and online platform to fully monitor your fleet operations and to guarantee machine uptime.
The Earth-Moving-Radial series, the EMR range, designed to perform and to enhance productivity in critical construction applications. It delivers both premium damage protection and durability, while its multi-surface tread design provides control and perfect grip on sand, rock, gravel or soil. Lorenzo Ciferri, VP Marketing & Communications at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, explains: “The introduction of the new EMR range stands as a key milestone for Trelleborg in the construction tire industry. In all tire segments that Trelleborg is operating in, our ambition is to become the customer’s first choice, providing them with solutions that are truly able to accelerate performance in a sustainable way.
“The strong full-steel radial pneumatic carcass of the EMR tire, as well as its advanced compound, assure long life. In addition, it offers equal load distribution for a comfortable drive while keeping fuel consumption low.”
Designed for loader and dumper applications, the EMR range consists of 22 sizes from 24 to 33 inches and is suitable for open pits and quarries, underground mines, as well as general construction.
Lorenzo Ciferri, VP Marketing & Communication at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, added: “The construction industry is changing fast with increasing focus on predictive maintenance, safety and machine performance, with the scope of reducing vehicles downtime and increasing the efficiency of the operations. Tires play a fundamental role in the overall machine performance. Therefore, we want to offer our customers a game-changing solution to ensure that the abovementioned targets will be achieved, having all data under control through full connectivity.
“This is why we decided to develop the Trelleborg TPMS system: Phoenix. In Egyptian mythology, whoever received the gift of the Eye of the Phoenix had the power to predict future events. The solution designed by Trelleborg, inspired by this myth, has the capacity to prevent failures and improve maintenance plans through to the precise control of real-time tire pressure and temperature.”
