Camso, formerly Camoplast Solideal, introduces five new forklift tire solutions. The new Solideal PON 775, a press-on tire designed for highly intense applications, will be launched later in 2017. This new tire provides reliability and maximum life in the most demanding environments, and more.
“We’ve incorporated a new technology that minimizes internal heat build-up and provides enhanced durability,” explains Erick Bellefleur, Product Line Director - Material Handling. “The PON 775 also features a unique and patented sidewall design which relieves stresses on the tire edges and reduces ground pressure,” concludes Bellefleur.
The release of these new solid tires is part of a new product position Camso has recently taken for its material handling business. To maximize life and return on investment, the company believes resilient and press-on tires should be selected according to the usage intensity of a forklift application. “Fleet owners expect maximum life from a tire,” explains Bellefleur. “When choosing tires for forklifts, buyers must especially focus on how the machine is being used. Over and above environment, vehicle usage intensity is the most important variable determining tire requirements,” he adds.
The company has developed their Usage Intensity Calculator, which analyzes the level of forklift application intensity and recommends the appropriate tire to provide maximum tire life for that specific application.
