BRUSSELS, Belgium (Jan. 3, 2014) — Trelleborg Wheel Systems S.p.A. received the “Silver Ears 2013” innovation award recently for its ProgressiveTraction technology.

The award, presented at the Agribex 2013 agricultural exhibition in Brussels, recognizes the most innovative and ground-breaking machines and technologies across the agricultural industry, Trelleborg said. The organizers of the exhibition present the awards annually, based on the results of stringent assessments carried out in the months preceding the exhibition.

Piero Mancinelli, R&D director, agricultural and forestry tires at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, called receiving the award an “exceptional achievement” and “testament to Trelleborg’s commitment to continually developing innovative solutions that improve the efficiency, productivity and sustainability of future farming.”

The ProgressiveTraction tire is designed to improve farming efficiency thanks to a double lug tread design. Operating on the soil at different times, the double lug progressively releases higher traction when required. The double lug also provides the tire with better floatation capability, ensuring an even pressure distribution over the extra wide footprint.
