Maxam Tire has expanded the size range of its Agrixtra 70 and 65 agricultural tyres. The brand said the new sizes would help deliver options for more varied farm applications in global markets. Maxam is adding seven new sizes to the Agrixtra 70 series and two new sizes to the Agrixtra 65 range.
Maxam Tire has brought its EcoPoint3 technology to the material handling sector with the introduction of the MS600 press-on solid tyre. The Sailun Group specialty tyre business considers the use of this new rubber compounding technology a transformative step that provides an “unrivalled solution” for users of forklift tyres.
The Maxam Agrixtra range of agricultural tyres has been approved for original fitment on select New Holland T5, T6, and T7 SWB and LWB tractors around the world. “The homologation, approval, and commercialisation of our radial agricultural tyres is a significant step in the evolution of the Maxam brand as a long-term supplier to CNH Industrial and New Holland Agriculture,” says Kevin Buckley Maxam OE sales director Europe. The Sailun Group brand added that the approval represents a “major milestone” for the brand and its agricultural tyre series, which was introduced in 2014.
Maxam Tire has expanded its MS915 series of tyres for modern telehandlers and graders. The all-new 370/75-28 and 400/75-28 sizes were developed for demanding conditions where high-traction is required. Maxam has manufactured the MS915 to offer a rugged and long-lasting solution for challenging construction applications.
Maxam Tire North America has made its MS503 L5 tyre available in 875/65R29. The OTR and industrial tyre specialist says it is the only L5 aggressive high-traction tread pattern tyre in the industry available in this size.
Maxam Tire Latin America (LATAM) will acquire and control the full equity interest in the LATAM Joint Venture (JV) on 31 October 2021. The 2015 JV was previously in place with Gustavo Lima and Marco Zigni and structured to expand the Maxam brand in the region via strategic partnership.
Maxam has added the new 27.00R49 MS412 to its open pit mining, quarry and OTR programme. The tyre is designed to meet the demanding conditions in mine sites globally. The mining tyre specialist’s engineering team has designed the MS412 with a high lug-to-void ratio for improved wear and impact protection, providing mine sites increased protection and wear on haulage tyres. Maxam engineers have also placed stone ejectors strategically to increase protection against stone drilling, a cause of premature tyre removal. Its tread grooves increase traction in a variety of haul roads conditions. To enable high speed operation with minimum heat build-up, Maxam adds that it has optimised the MS412’s base compound.
Maxam Tire has expanded its construction tyre portfolio with an all-new telehandler tyre produced in the company’s recently-inaugurated solid tyre factory in Vietnam. It’s called the Maxam MS709, and Maxam says it has engineered the tyre to “provide the industry with a rugged and long-lasting solution for demanding construction applications.”
Speciality tyre manufacturer Maxam Tire has opened a new advanced and automated solid tyre production facility. It said the new facility represents “a major commitment to the speciality solid tyre segment.” Maxam added that the plant is “strategically aligned to better serve today’s market demands through compound advancement and automated technology.” Sources within the Sailun Group told Tyres & Accessories that the factory is located in Vietnam.
Caterpillar Inc has approved the Maxam MS302 L3 tyre for use on specific Cat medium wheel loaders in size 23.5R25. The tyre is currently available as a factory fitment option on Cat 950GC, 950L, 950M, 962L, and 962M in certain regions. Additional Maxam MS302 tyre sizes have also been validated and approved for future factory fitment on additional Cat medium wheel loaders.
