Bridgestone to Showcase OTR Tire Management Solutions
Bridgestone Americas Inc. will showcase its total suite of OTR tire management solutions during this week's ConExpo show in Las Vegas, Nev.
"At Bridgestone, we're going beyond the tire to deliver a full suite of product, technology and service solutions that maximize productivity and help customers improve their business," says Bridget Neal, president, OTR, U.S. and Canada, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.
"Today's OTR customers cannot afford downtime. They require increased productivity and reduced operating costs. ConExpo 2020 is a unique opportunity for us to showcase our innovative solutions that we believe will help our customers move more each day and lower their total cost of ownership."
Inside Bridgestone's ConExpo booth, attendees will see a demo of the next generation of the tiremaker's Bridgestone PressureStat Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Solution.
"PressureStat is designed to prevent tire-related incidents in OTR tires sizes 49 inches and below, which can help lead to more uptime and increased productivity on the job site," say Bridgestone officials. "The exhibit will feature a prototype of the next generation PressureStat system, which features an improved sensor design. It also enables automated communication about tire pressure in real time."
Attendees will see how PressureStat integrates with TreadStat, Bridgestone's tire and wheel management system, and how the two "work together to track tire pressure, monitor the entire service life of a tire...as well as unlock new insights for improved efficiency."
Bridgestone will feature other products and solutions during ConExpo, including the Bridgestone VRQP tire, "which provides maximum traction in quarry applications," and the Bridgestone VJT tire, which is designed for enhanced cut resistance.
