Trelleborg’s ProgressiveTraction honored again

Dec. 9, 2013

Trelleborg AB has received the “Silver Ears 2013” innovation award for its ProgressiveTraction technology at Agribex 2013 agricultural exhibition in Brussels, Belgium.

The show’s innovations awards honor and recognize the most innovative and ground-breaking machines and technologies across the agricultural industry. They are awarded by a professional judging panel based on the results of stringent assessments carried out in the months preceding the exhibition.

Fedagrim, the organiser of Agribex, the international trade show for agriculture, livestock breeding, landscaping and green zones, announced the winners in a ceremony on December 3rd. This was attended by representatives from leading manufacturers, along with journalists from agricultural publications.

Piero Mancinelli, R&D director, Agricultural and Forestry Tires at Trelleborg Wheel Systems said: “After being named ‘Machine of the year 2014’ at Agritechnica 2013, for our ProgressiveTraction tire to be named ‘Silver Ears 2013’ at Agribex 2013 is an exceptional achievement. It is testament to Trelleborg’s commitment to continually developing innovative solutions that improve the efficiency, productivity and sustainability of future farming.”

The ProgressiveTraction tire is a new concept in 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 when required. The double lug also provides the tire with better floatation capability, ensuring an even pressure distribution over the extra wide footprint.
