Why more and more forklifts are using solid tires

- Oct 17, 2017-

As the main components of tyre forklift, support the full weight of the vehicle, forklift bearing force and torque load, and pass the other direction, the use of forklift solid tire than using hollow tires, what are the reasons that the forklift use of solid tires?

1, solid tires have excellent safety performance, is conducive to improving work efficiency

Solid tire carcass was composed of rubber, so it greatly ensures the tire puncture resistance, elimination of industrial vehicles in poor working conditions or in the bearing in the operation process of tire puncture risk. The solid tire has the characteristics of small load shape and good operation stability. Because of its resistance to puncture and tear, no need for inflation, solid tires can replace pneumatic tires in low speed and high efficiency vehicles.

2. Leading formula planning and skills

Solid tyres have a history of more than half a century and are rich in experience. In the rubber formula planning progress using the maximum performance of tire, especially base glue full selection of imported high rigidity and low heat glue, tire in the operation of the heating and temperature rising to a minimum, and then the solid tire temperature rise caused due to swell, slip ring, burst and other serious questions; the formula and reduce the planned rolling resistance of tire. Through the national construction machinery quality supervision and inspection base inspection, solid tire rolling resistance coefficient and pneumatic tire appropriate, so deal with the use of solid tires brought about by increasing fuel consumption doubt;

3, to prevent tire burst, showing out of control dangerous situation, promote safe production

Compared with pneumatic tires, solid tires have the advantages of high safety, piercing resistance, tear resistance, wear resistance and long service life, and are the ideal replacement products of pneumatic tires in industrial vehicles. With the development of industrial vehicles and the improvement of solid tire production skills, this kind of tire has been used more and more widely.

Solid tire selection of leading three stage structure planning, three kinds of rubber materials to ensure the overall performance of the tire. Base ring of rubber and steel with high strength, high rigidity, which can ensure the tire stiffness, but also to ensure that the fastening of tire and rim, so it eliminates slip ring doubt solid tire; center of rubber with high flexibility, can be useful to absorb vehicle operation sensation, to prevent damage to vehicle; thickening of the tread layer, ensure tire tearing and abrasion resistance, improved solid tire service life.
