A new material-handling tire from Trelleborg has been designed for high-intensity applications. The XP1000 is suited for operations in ports, warehouses and shop floors, and has been designed to offer optimum traction and minimal vibration – improving comfort and safety, lowering fuel consumption and extending tire life for more cost-effective and sustainable operations.

“We have worked hard to make sure our tires are ready for next-generation material-handling vehicles and the intense jobs they’re required to perform,” explained Luca Sabelli, product manager, material handling at Trelleborg Wheel Systems. “We want to give our customers a high-performance tire promising greater durability, more stability and comfort, while reducing the environmental impact – even when handling heavy-duty jobs. The XP1000 tire does all that – and more.”

Trelleborg points to comparison tests against competitive tires which, the company says, show the XP1000 tire lasts up to 9% longer, with 21% improved endurance and offers a reported increase in comfort of up to 13%. The tire’s three internal layers have been designed with sustainability in mind: the lightweight tire features a fiber compound made using recycled materials.

The XP1000 includes Trelleborg’s Pit Stop Line technology which lets operators know the right time to replace their tires so they can get the most out of them and reduce waste. The tire also incorporates Trelleborg’s labelling system to help customers select the right tire for their operations according to application-specific requirements and intensity, improving overall performance.
