Forklift Tyre Specialist Adds Non-Marking Additions to Range
20th November 2019
Road-free tyre specialist Camso has made non-marking additions to its Solideal PON series. The PON 555 NM and PON 550 NM press-on tyres were developed to deliver increased energy efficiency and thermal performance, the company says.
Both tyres are designed to meet the growing needs of indoor applications and rental fleets with operations of medium intensity usage, offering customers a non-marking solution with industry-leading life. Indeed, companies don’t want to see tyre marks or black rubber dust on the floor or on their goods, and a growing number of industries have set regulations that require the use of non-marking tyres – but none of them can compromise on life or performance.
“As more operations have moved indoors and require cleaner working environments, non-marking tyres have become an imperative for approximately 30% of forklift applications,” says Thierry Miche, Product Line Executive Director – Material Handling, at Camso. “When combined with a rise in rental applications and a growing trend in electric forklifts, it’s no surprise that the demand for performing non-marking solutions is increasing. As a leader in the industry, we want to offer solutions that tackle new challenges as they arise.”
The new tyres added to the PON series are:
• The Solideal PON 555 NM – smooth-surfaced tyre: ensures clean working environment, low rolling resistance and improved thermal performance. It has been especially designed to provide maximum lifespan for medium intensity applications requiring non-marking press-on tyres.
• The Solideal PON 550 NM – treaded tyre: has all the features and benefits of the PON 555 NM, with a wide profile and flat footprint for increased stability and grip. It benefits from the company’s established tread pattern design, which has proven its reliability for over 25 years.
