Trelleborg Wins Journey to Automation Awards With Newest Innovation: CTIS+ Inside
At this year’s virtual Journey to Automation Awards ceremony, Trelleborg was announced the winner of the Tire Sustainability category, with its innovative Central Tire Inflation System (CTIS+ Inside).
Paolo Pompei, President of Trelleborg Wheel Systems, says: “We are honored to receive this award in the Tire Sustainability category. Innovation is at the heart of sustainable farming, and at Trelleborg, we are committed to finding solutions that will help today’s farmers feed the world’s growing population well into the future.”
The new CTIS+ Inside by Trelleborg sets the standard in tire sustainability, leading the industry towards greater efficiency, enhanced performance and reduced environmental impact. With its fully integrated OEM central pressure control system, CTIS+ enables tractor drivers to regulate tire pressure directly from the tractor cabin according to the recommended pressures calculated by advanced Trelleborg Load Calculator (TLC) software.
This smart solution not only helps farmers to optimize production while ensuring safety in farming operations, but it also reduces farming variable costs as well as the environmental footprint associated with farming activities.
