At CeMAT 2018, Trelleborg Wheel Systems is showcasing its full range of tires for the material handling market. This includes the ProTex – an electrically conductive non-marking solution for forklifts, ProHD – a tire for managing high load applications, the Pit Stop Line and Premia, as well as the T-900 & TR900 industrial pneumatics.
At this year’s event, Trelleborg introduces ProTex: an innovative solution that is the result of intense research in compound engineering, combined with Trelleborg’s advanced polymer expertise. Trelleborg is the first manufacture to offer a fully non-marking resilient tire produced with an electrically conducting compound. At the Trelleborg stand, visitors can carry out a experiment to prove the electrically conductive property of the compound.
Paolo Pompei, President Trelleborg Wheel Systems, said: “It is not a coincidence we are launching the new ProTex compound at CeMAT 2018, where global leaders of intralogistics and supply chain businesses gather together.”
Another key feature at the show, will be ProHD - an innovative material handling solution intended for high load uses, designed to reduce the risk of operational failures due to overloaded tires. This new compound resists radial cracking or even potential melting, limiting heat buildup material handling tires, radically improving driver safety in heavy duty operations.
“The introduction of these new compounds is a key breakthrough for Trelleborg in the material handling tire industry. Upgrading the safety standards of all material handling applications is a key objective when developing and engineering compound innovations,” Pompei continued.
Trelleborg is also showcasing Pit Stop Line Elite XP resilient tires, featuring a built-in, visible line that appears when the tire has just 100 hours remaining before replacement. This unique innovation allows the user to achieve the best Total Value of Ownership, as well as benefitting from increased productivity and safety, while reducing environmental impact across a fleet. Also on show are the bias and radial industrial pneumatics T-900 and TR900, which along with the Press On and Mold On ranges, makes the Trelleborg range one of the most comprehensive on the market.
The Trelleborg Wheel Systems booth at CeMAT can be found in Hall 26 at booth L29 between April 23 and 27 in Hannover, Germany.
