BKT, the Indian manufacturer of giant OTR tires is preparing extensively for BAUMA 2016. BAUMA is one of the leading trade shows in the world with regard to machinery and equipment for the construction and mining industries. HBKT will have an advertising presence not only at the entrance to the show, but also in the passages between the halls. Just like at the last edition of the show, which was held in 2013, the company will be announcing its presence through customization of the rickshaws that will be provided to the trade show visitors for easy mobility within the large open-air exhibition area. Another eye-catching feature will be the company’s new giant tire, Earthmax SR 45 Plus, which will tower over all visitors with an imposing height of 2.70 meters at the entrance to the show.
The BKT booth (Hall A6, Stand 225), will showcase the company’s Earthmax range with a display of six different models in the spotlight. The Earthmax SR 41 (size 29.5 R 25), is an All Steel radial tire for articulated dumpers while Earthmax SR 47 (size 24.00 R 35) is highly cut-resistant and is specially designed for rigid dumpers functioning in the harshest environment. The Earthmax SR 53 (size 23.5 R 25) is a strong and durable tire that is the perfect fit for loaders and dozers in quarries and mining applications, while Earthmax SR 22 (size 20.5 R 25) is a tough tire for loaders and motor graders that has been customized for use in extreme winter conditions.
The new tire on the block is Earthmax SR 31 (size 23.5 R 25), an All Steel tire comprising multiple layers of steel belts to provide high levels of stability, strength, cut and heat resistance when used in loaders, dozers and articulated dumpers. The tire that is expected to be the cynosure of all eyes at the fair, based on its sheer size, is the Earthmax SR 45 Plus (size 27.00 R 49) with its diameter of 2.70 meters. This giant radial tire has been engineered for rigid dumpers and is ideal for long-haul operations. The strong All Steel casing structure stands for extraordinary stability as well as enhanced cut-and-chip resistance. It comes with an innovative tread design to give it outstanding self-cleaning properties and to minimize vibrations and noise.
When it comes to on- and off-the-road cranes, BKT will highlight the AIROMAX AM 27 (size 445/95 R 25) that can be used at high speeds while providing the best riding comfort and high levels of heat resistance.
Other tires that BKT will be presenting at the fair include those for the logistics sector, from the PORTMAX and LIFTMAX ranges. These include the PORTMAX PM 90 (size 18.00 R 25), a multi-layer steel-belted radial tire for reach stackers, with an All Steel structure for optimal distribution of loads, and a low rolling resistance for fuel economy. The PORTMAX PM 93 (size 16.00 R 25) tire for straddle carriers in ports offers users a high load capacity thanks to its All Steel structure and multi-layer steel belts. The brand new LIFTMAX LM 81 (size 7.50 R 25) tire for forklifts offers multiple advantages including an extremely resistant casing, low rolling resistance, high stability even at high speeds, and low operating costs.
Through its participation in the BAUMA fair, BKT will be able to emphasize its growing presence in the offroad tire segment for applications ranging from the mining industry to construction and port applications.
