Trelleborg Wheel Systems has launched its new Pit Stop Line Tires for the material handling industry. The solution is designed to answer one of the industry’s most critical questions—how to know, with 100% certainty, when a forklift tire is worn out and needs replacing.
Pit Stop Line Tires feature a highly visible orange line embedded into the tire. This indictor is designed to reveal itself across the surface of the tire when it reaches the point where it should be replaced, helping to ensure that tires are never replaced either too early or too late.
This feature also helps improve machine uptime and service planning. With the Pit Stop Line appearing 100 hours or five to 15 working days before the tire needs replacing, operators are able to plan their tire changes in advance, avoiding unplanned downtime.
Trelleborg will be at ProMat 2015, booth 3241.
