Trelleborg Wheel Systems has set up a virtual showroom to give customers "a 360-degree experience" of its tires. "Customers can also connect with Trelleborg experts in the immersive virtual space," say Trelleborg officials.
Trelleborg Wheel Systems has expanded the Brawler HPS (High Performance Solid) telehandler tire range to include the Comfort line. The new tires are designed to reduce vibration and offer telehandler and compact wheel loader operators a more comfortable ride.
Several farm tire manufacturers introduced new products — and in one company’s case, a new farm tire performance monitoring system — at last month’s Agritechnica event. The show, which took place in Hanover, Germany, billed itself as “the world’s leading trade fair for agricultural machinery” and featured exhibitors from more than 50 countries.
The consensus coming from speakers at the 64th annual Tire Industry Association (TIA) Off-the-Road Tire Conference is that the economy is strong and prospects for growth in 2019 are expected. All of this spells moderate-to-strong demand for the OTR tire industry.
