Camso focuses on traction, durability with MPT 732
A new Camso tyre has been introduced for the agro-industrial market. The Camso MPT 732 is a multi-purpose cross-ply tyre developed to meet the requirements of end users in Europe and other markets in the EMEA region. Camso says the MPT 732 has been “engineered for exceptional traction, stability and durability under a variety of conditions.”
Discussing the MPT 732’s characteristics, Lander Nijs, Product Manager Tires, EMEA – Construction, at Camso, says “newer tread compounds and features such as void guards, which increase puncture and impact resistance, have improved tyre durability and tread life.” He adds: “These features come as a result of a recent study we carried out which showed that most off-the-road tyres on the market fail prematurely, so customers don’t get their full value. At Camso, our focus is on durability to ensure tyres reach their natural end of life.”
Available in eight different sizes, the MPT 732 multi-purpose tyre is designed for machinery such as compact wheel loaders, telehandlers and backhoe loaders. These machines typically work under a variety of surface conditions, from clearing snow to excavation to farm work, and each condition demands traction, stability, durability, and ride quality from tyres installed on equipment. To achieve this, the MPT 732 features these specific tyre technologies:
• Extra thick void guard to provide additional protection for enhanced durability: this area, located between the tread lugs, is where the vast majority of punctures and cuts occur.
• Impact guard to increase sidewall and rim flange protection.
• Wraparound stepped tread design to maximise tread cleanout, essential for traction when working in muddy or soft conditions.
• Heavy-duty sidewall for enhanced sidewall and rim flange protection, further reducing impact damage, flat tyres and shortened tyre life.
Camso’s MPT line-up uses the latest technologies in cross-ply, radial and solid tyres, to cover almost all compact construction and agricultural machines on the market. “Our challenge is always to offer the right solution for the application,” Nijs said. “The MPT 732 really meets all of our customer requirements, not just for today, but their needs for tomorrow as well.”
The MPT 732 is now available at Camso dealers throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and will soon be available in the Asia Pacific region as well.
