NKT display with tractor and construction tyres at The Tire Cologne 2024

The leading Off-Highway tyre manufacturer is about to present a selection of its top tyres, confirming the company’s commitment to innovation and sustainable policies.

BKT to Showcase Innovations and Sustainability

BKT will have a particularly significant and striking presence at this new edition of The Tire Cologne, the international tyre trade show that provides a comprehensive overview of the entire sector. The show will open its doors June 4-6. This prestigious event is the ideal setting to delve into BKT’s best tyre offerings for the agricultural, agro-industrial, earthmoving, industrial, and construction sectors.

BKT, a leading multinational Off-Highway tyre company with widely acknowledged expertise in these areas, will attend this major event to present the latest innovations in the tyre industry and reaffirm its commitment to sustainability and the premium quality of its products.

Among the top products on display at BKT’s booth B030-C039, visitors will be able to view the new POWERTRAILER SR 331, a tyre that has been specifically designed for trailers and tankers and is ideal for both field and road operations. This All-Steel radial tyre is a versatile, advanced, all-around solution intended for farmers and operators needing high performance and reliability in transport and operations on diverse terrains. POWERTRAILER SR 331 ensures exceptional grip on asphalt and remarkable traction on farmland. In addition, its All-Steel construction provides high load-carrying capacity and offers superior stability for the casing, making it extremely strong and durable.

Introducing AGRIMAXFACTOR: BKT’s New 70 Series Tractor Tyre for Superior Comfort and Performance

A unique space is reserved for AGRIMAXFACTOR, the all-new 70 series for tractors, which is ideal for transport and tillage. This tyre boasts an improved tread design with longer lugs and a modified lug angle orientation in the rolling direction to ensure better readability. The reduced lug angle leads to less rolling resistance. In contrast, the 5-percent increase in the ground contact area significantly reduces the noise in the cab, resulting in greater operator comfort. The robust polyester carcass provides outstanding lateral stability and faster steering response, even at high speed or in heavy-duty service.

Moreover, wet braking results are excellent. In a nutshell, AGRIMAXFACTOR offers great handling, extraordinary ride comfort, and outstanding durability, meeting the needs of increasingly heavier machinery, including electric vehicles with heavier battery packs. The exclusive sidewall with the “E-READY” logo highlights BKT’s commitment to electric mobility.

Next to AGRIMAXFACTOR, BKT is exhibiting AGRIMAX V-FLECTO, the tyre awarded DLG’s prestigious test quality certificate in the modules “Resources Protection” and “User Friendliness.”

This tyre is ideal for soil tillage and transport applications, offering reduced soil compaction and excellent self-cleaning properties. Thanks to the VF technology, AGRIMAX V-FLECTO can carry heavy loads with lower inflation pressure compared to standard or IF tyres while maintaining high speeds. It is also distinguished by the Narrow Rim Option (NRO), which allows the tyre to be mounted on standard rims.

Discover BKT’s New Forestry Tyres: FORESTLAND and FORESTMAX

The Tire Cologne 2024 is also an opportunity to discover BKT’s latest two innovations in forestry: FORESTLAND and FORESTMAX. The former is a tyre characterized by great cut resistance and excellent traction on soft terrain. Thanks to its unique tread design and robust construction, it is perfect for the most demanding forestry and agricultural operations. FORESTMAX, on the other hand, has been specifically designed for tractors employed in forestry applications since it provides extraordinary strength and traction even on rough terrains.

Not only are agriculture and forestry represented in the tyre world, but also port operations, construction and earthmoving. BKT grasps the opportunity of the stage at The Tire Cologne to showcase PORTMAX PM 90, a radial tyre for industrial handling that features a special tread compound providing exceptional heat resistance and a longer tyre life-cycle, and FL 695, which is specifically designed for trailers in construction and agricultural transport activities and can carry heavy loads while maintaining stability in all operating conditions. On the earthmoving side, not to be missed the EARTHMAX tyre range with one of its flagship products, namely EARTHMAX SR 45 M. This all-steel radial tyre is perfect for rigid dump trucks employed in muddy environments, as it provides optimal strength and excellent traction even in the most extreme operating conditions.

Join BKT at The Tire Cologne 2024: Innovation and Expert Insight

These tyres will be on display in a 357-meter exhibition area, centrally located within Hall 6.1, designed to let visitors immerse themselves in an experience fully dedicated to innovation in the tyre industry. For three days, the BKT booth B030-C039 will thus be a meeting point where visitors can discover the most advanced technical solutions and talk directly to the BKT experts.

Rajiv Poddar, Joint Managing Director of BKT, “The Tire Cologne 2024 is a key strategic platform and a unique opportunity to present our latest innovations in the tyre industry to a specialized B2B audience. BKT aims to demonstrate how the innovative technologies they are implementing can meet the specific needs of a wide range of industry professionals. From distributors and retailers to manufacturers and farmers, they’re committed to offering targeted solutions. Customization and attention to specific needs have always been at the core of BKT’s strategy, designed to support each customer on their journey to more sustainable and technologically advanced mobility.”

BKT’s participation in The Tire Cologne 2024 strengthens its commitment to advancing the Off-Highway tyre industry by offering innovative solutions that significantly improve productivity. BKT looks towards the future with determination, ready to shape an industry that is ever more focused on sustainability and performance.
