Stellana launches Optima system
Stellana, Inc., a moulded polyurethane wheel manufacturer recently introduced its Optima line of polyurethane tyres for the material handling industry, which apparently differ from press-on bands. “Standard press-on tyres come with costly trip charges, press-on charges, and downtime expenses. The Optima Tire System eliminates these costs: simply bolt the tyre onto your lift truck and you are up and running again,” said Stellana’s sales and marketing manager, Michael Scoon.
“The cost savings from the elimination of downtime alone will pay for this tyre many times over. When you factor in the increase productivity of your fleet, and it’s easy to see how The Optima Tire System will revolutionize your plant performance.”
According to the company, the Optima Tire System improves load carrying capacity by an average 60 per cent.
