At this year’s Bauma show, Trelleborg Wheel Systems will be introducing its newest range of innovative tire designs and systems to enhance productivity in critical applications and to make the lives of operators easier in the most demanding environments.
Visitors to the Trelleborg booth will be able to view a number of the company’s tires and solutions at the forefront of construction technology, including:
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;
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 on-line platform to fully monitor your fleet operations and to guarantee machine uptime.
At the Trelleborg booth, the EMR, Earthmover Radial Series, will be displayed in two sizes: 29.5R25 EMR 1030 and 17.5R25 EMR 1025. 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.
Another example of excellence in construction tires on show at Bauma 2019 is the new Trelleborg MPX TB range. Designed for telehandler and compact loader applications in the most demanding environments, the MPX TB range has a unique lug design delivers excellent self-cleaning and grip on muddy surfaces. Now available with increased load capacity for heavy duty applications, the MPX TB is also ECE 106 approved to meet European safety regulations.
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 TMPS 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.”
Phoenix enables the measurement of pressure and temperature every five seconds providing instant access to vehicle status and monitoring data via PC or mobile devices. Thanks to the full connectivity and cloud data transmission, the operator can benefit from automatic email-notifications in alert situations and receive personalized vehicle warnings. Each sensor is mounted on the tire with a resistant patch which guarantees an easy installation, and the battery of the sensor has an average life of five years.
The system is available in nine languages and can be configured on all machine models.
