Trelleborg to have giant presence at Agritechnica
Trelleborg AB will present its portfolio of high-quality tires and complete wheel solutions at Agritechnica 2013, to be held in Hannover, Germany, Nov. 10-15 in hall 9, booth E06.
Taking center stage at Trelleborg’s “Sustainable Farming” themed stand will be new products that include Trelleborg’s giant IF900/65R46 TM1000 High Power with its 46-inch THK rim. The new BlueTire tread design maximizes the tread width and ensures the widest footprint on the market, providing optimum pressure distribution and the utmost respect for the soil.
“Our latest giant tire is a powerful outcome of our advanced engineering. The new 46-inch IF900/65R46 TM1000 High Power ensures an extra wide footprint at low pressure and an unbeatable flotation performance. This results in improved pressure distribution on the ground to boost crop yield, while preserving soil from compaction,” says Piero Mancinelli, R&D director, Agricultural and Forestry Tires, Trelleborg Wheel Systems.
The company will also feature its recently launched ProgressiveTraction tire, a new concept of agricultural tires specifically designed to improve farming efficiency thanks to a double lug. Operating on the soil at different times, the double lug progressively releases higher traction where and when required.
ProgressiveTraction tires demonstrated a traction capacity over 10% higher when compared to standard technology tires, notes Trelleborg. The extra pulling force resulted in a 3-5% reduction of working time, as well as a 5% reduction in fuel consumption, providing farming operations with substantial cost savings.
Trelleborg’s popular 750/75R46 TM1000 High Power, 710/75R42 TM1000 HP, 460/70R24 TH400 from its new agro-industrial range, the 750/60R30.5 Twin Radial and the IF 800/70R32 CFO TM3000 for the latest generation of harvesting applications will also be featured, available as complete wheels with Trelleborg rims.
“With more than 2,700 exhibitors from over 50 countries and 419,000 visitors, Agritechnica 2013 provides the ideal platform to bring our latest high performance solutions to boost the efficiency and productivity of today and tomorrow’s farming, directly to those that can benefit from them most,” concludes Mancinelli.
The Trelleborg booth will also contain an LED waterfall, which reflects the company’s sustainable stance and underlines the company’s commitment to providing solutions which not only provide added value for the customer, but for the environment as well.
