Trelleborg features smart tyre solutions at IMHX

Trelleborg features smart tyre solutions at IMHX

Trelleborg Wheel Systems will showcase smart solutions for the materials handling market at IMHX 2016, the largest meeting place for the UK’s logistics industry taking place at the NEC, Birmingham from 13th-16th September. On Stand 12X80, it will highlight its premium Pit Stop Line solid tyres, together with the service brand Interfit and the new online-based I-Rent solution.

Richard Lyons, Regional Manager Northern Europe, says: “At Trelleborg Wheel Systems we believe that as a strategic partner to the forklift industry we need to be fully committed to delivering innovative solutions with improved added value to our customers. We go beyond the products themselves and aim to be the applications expert that helps customers to achieve their goals.”

Pit Stop Line maximises industrial tyre life

Trelleborg’s Pit Stop Line enables forklift owners and operators to plan more easily and accurately than ever before for tyre replacement, eliminating unplanned downtime. The Pit Stop Line provides an unmissable visual indicator when a tyre needs replacing. Once a tyre has worn down to a point when there are about 100 hours of tyre life left, a bright orange line appears on its surface. The Pit Stop Line feature is available on the premium Trelleborg Elite XP and Trelleborg M² tyres.

Interfit – the company’s global brand for all its tyre services activities

Trelleborg’s service operation, Interfit, offers a nationwide professional onsite replacement tyre fitting service along with the widest range of premium industrial tyres in the market. As part of its service excellence programme, Interfit manages tyre replacement using both mobile presses and an exchange wheel service. Interfit’s multi-brand offering means it always offers the right tyre to customers based on their exact requirements. Interfit has become a key partner to the global materials handling industry with operations in three continents.

I-Rent simplifying tyres for dealers and end users

Trelleborg is also demonstrating its new I-Rent solution at IMHX. This new web-based service allows fork lift truck dealers to include accurately calculated full cost of tyres in their lease contracts. Historically, only a small percentage of lease contracts have made provision for tyres – typically one set per year – due to the complexity of differing end user requirements. Based around Trelleborg’s applications expertise, I-Rent overcomes this and provides an accurate monthly cost for tyres, meaning forklift dealers can offer their users a single source and invoice for parts and maintenance.

Lyons concludes: “The Pit Stop Line and service solutions such as Interfit and I-Rent are clear demonstrations of Trelleborg’s ability to put its applications expertise to use in delivering added value to our customers. We are delighted to be showcasing all these solutions at IMHX 2016 and are looking forward to welcoming customers and visitors to our stand.”
