Trelleborg’s Pit Stop Line enables forklift owners and operators to plan more easily and accurately than ever before for tyre replacement, eliminating unplanned downtime. The Pit Stop Line provides an unmissable visual indicator when a tyre needs replacing. Once a tyre has worn down to a point when there are about 100 hours of tyre life left, a bright orange line appears on its surface. The Pit Stop Line feature is available on the premium Trelleborg Elite XP and Trelleborg M² tyres.
Trelleborg’s service operation, Interfit, offers a nationwide professional onsite replacement tyre fitting service along with the widest range of premium industrial tyres in the market. As part of its service excellence program, Interfit manages tyre replacement using both mobile presses and an exchange wheel service. Interfit’s multi-brand offering means it always offers the right tyre to customers based on their exact requirements. Interfit has become a key partner to the global material handling industry with operations in three continents.
Trelleborg is also demonstrating its new I-Rent solution at IMHX. This new web-based service allows forklift truck dealers to include accurately calculated full cost of tyres in their lease contracts. Historically, only a small percentage of lease contracts have made provision for tyres – typically one set per year – due to the complexity of differing end user requirements. Based around Trelleborg’s applications expertise, I-Rent overcomes this and provides an accurate monthly cost for tyres, meaning forklift dealers can offer their users a single source and invoice for parts and maintenance.
