04 Apr MARANGONI AT SITL 2016
With its participation at SITL Europe 2016, one of the major transport and logistics exhibitions, which was held in Paris just a few days ago, Marangoni once again confirmed its interest in the French market. Marangoni already enjoys a leading position in sales and service in the sector of tyres for industrial handling equipment through its subsidiary MIM, Marangoni Industrie Manutention.
During the event, Marangoni presented the Eltor EVO range, the latest line of super-elastic tyres for industrial handling equipment. This new series – developed with the support provided by two important international fork lift truck manufacturers who use Marangoni tyres as original equipment on their vehicles – has just over one year since its official launch seen quite substantial levels of growth.
The use of special compounds allows the new product to reduce rolling resistance by 8%, with consequent energy savings, meaning electricity and fuel. Moreover, its optimised structure, thanks to a deeper tread, not only reduces energy consumption by 20%, but also produces 15% less heat, with a consequent increase in tyre life (+10%). These tried-and-tested advantages all translate into significant savings in running costs for users.
Directional stability and excellent traction are two other distinguishing features of the Eltor EVO range, available in sizes 8”- 20”, in the black or “non-marking” version.
In addition to the Eltor EVO line, visitors at the show had the chance to appreciate other products in the Marangoni offering, designed to meet all the needs of the industrial tyre segment.
