Specialty tire manufacturer Maxam Tire has unveiled the MS600 press-on solid, a high-performance tire aimed at vehicles within the material handling industry.
The tire series will feature the company’s new rubber compound technology, EcoPoint3, and will be manufactured using a fully automated strip winding process to ensure end products are of a high quality and deliver performance consistency. Produced in aggressive tread widths, the MS600 will be manufactured at Maxam’s brand new and state-of-the-art solid tire factory.
Featuring a 5° sidewall taper, the MS600 press-on solid benefits from one of the widest tread widths available to the industry, providing vehicles a high level of stability, grip and tire life. An extra-wide North American tread profile will also be available.
For maximum load distribution and stability during stop and go operations, the MS600 features a full tread profile for a larger footprint area. Produced using Maxam’s EcoPoint3 compound, the MS600 benefits from improved rolling, skid and wear resistance. This means the tire’s masterbatches contain less filler, higher ratios of stress at elongation and minimum proportions of impurities for a more consistent and leading-edge compound.
“In continuation of establishing the brand-new solid factory with advanced automation and creating the evolutionary EcoPoint3 compound technology, the new MS600 series marks another milestone of Maxam Tire’s commitment of providing unmatched performance, value and productivity to the material handling market,” said Troy Kline, president of Maxam Tire North America. “We are confident that the new program will raise industry standards and provide the valuable business solutions that our customers deserve.”
