Around four years ago, Camso had a ‘lightbulb’ moment – it realised a patent it had been sitting on for years could solve the problem of static build-up in non-marking tyres. It began work on a product that would address this and released the Solideal PON 775 NMAS in 2017. UK and European users were introduced to Camso’s NMAS (non-marking anti-static) concept earlier this year with the introduction of a resilient-style forklift tyre. For those unfamiliar with its anti-static solution, Camso has now issued a ‘white paper’ document that sheds light on how NMAS products work.
It was the threat of a spark that sparked an ingenious solution. During an on-site customer visit some three years ago, a team from Camso observed a problem plaguing the materials handling industry – and realised they already possessed a potential solution. This solution is now on the market, and Camso considers it a game-changer.
Camso has unveiled the first patented anti-static forklift tyre designed to resolve the important safety issue of static electricity generated by non-marking tyres. The company will showcase its new Solideal PON 775 NMAS (Non-Marking Anti-Static) press-on tyre at the CeMat show later this month.
