June 2012: New Dual Excavator Tyre Design
As expected, Alliance Tyre Group was present at this year Reifen exhibition. The company has presented many of its products, among which, probably the most significant is the new and quite innovative dual excavator tyre which comes with a revolutionary design.
The new Alliance Tyre Group dual excavator tyre, the 528 Dual Master, resolves the problem of small stones becoming locked between the double tyres present in excavator equipment.
The way the company tackled the problem was by using a distinctive sidewall structure that enables the tyres to come in close contact and therefore eliminate the problem of small stones entering the area.
The traditional solution to this problem was to place a rubber spacer among the tyres. The problem with this solution was that it’s not completely flawless, small stones still entering the space between the tyres, causing small punctures.
The 528 Dual Master is the first tyre of this type that does not need the rubber spacer and that completely eliminates the problem of possible punctures from small stones.
The 528 Dual Master from Alliance Tyre Group shows the company’s constant strive for innovation. The tyre is available in the 380/80R 22.5 size and offers, besides this new and innovating feature, improved tyre life and machine response, decreased fuel consumption, improved overall ride and improved stability.
