BKT LAUNCHES SPE­CIAL TYRES FOR FORKLIFTS

PMV Middle East - - PEAK PERFORMANC­E -

Balkr­ishna In­dus­tries Ltd. (BKT) has launched two new sizes specif­i­cally de­signed for forklifts in its Maglift range of tyres - the Maglift Eco and Maglift Premium.

The Maglift Eco is made with two lay­ers of rub­ber com­pound and has a spe­cial shape and very wide lugs to guar­an­tee out­stand­ing sta­bil­ity and ex­cel­lent load dis­tri­bu­tion. Among its dis­tinc­tive fea­tures there is also the par­tic­u­lar rim guard de­signed to pro­tect it against dam­age and dent­ing. Low rolling re­sis­tance and high re­sis­tance to over­heat­ing guar­an­tee max­i­mum ef­fi­ciency. Com­plet­ing the pic­ture are the steel wires in­cor­po­rated into the hitch which of­fer very se­cure grip and pre­vent any risk of slip­page. There are two ver­sions avail­able, stan­dard and ‘LIP’ i.e. with an asym­met­ric hitch to avoid hav­ing to add flanges.

The Maglift Premium has in­stead been de­signed for forklifts used for the tough­est op­er­a­tions and comes with an ex­tra deep tread to guar­an­tee a long life cy­cle. The de­sign of the tread is both ro­bust and ag­gres­sive, en­abling op­er­a­tors to count on ex­cel­lent steer­ing con­trol and great for­ward and lat­eral trac­tion. The cen­tral groov­ing of the tread en­sures low rolling re­sis­tance. The tyre is avail­able in both stan­dard and ‘LIP’ ver­sions.

Be­sides the two new mod­els, new sizes are planned for th­ese forklifts, in­clud­ing the non-mark­ing com­pound which leaves no trace.

The non-mark­ing ver­sion of the Maglift en­sures that floor­ing is left per­fectly clean. It is specif­i­cally suited to lo­gis­ti­cal and pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties in the food and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal sec­tors the where max­i­mum hy­giene is nec­es­sary, but where all the other key char­ac­ter­is­tics of Maglift are also needed.
