FAIRLAWN, Ohio (April 25, 2012) — Trelleborg Wheel Systems Americas Inc. has released the Trelleborg Load Calculator (TLC) app, a tool for tablets, smartphones and PCs that determines tire loads and pressures,.
The app is a professional tool designed to be used by farmers, contractors and specialized tire and machinery dealers, allowing them to calculate a tractor's load per axle in order to determine optimal tire pressure in specific conditions, Trelleborg said. It is available in English, French and Spanish for download from the Apple store or from the company's website.
“This is the first app launched by Trelleborg for the agricultural industry,” said Lorenzo Ciferri, marketing director for Trelleborg's Agri & Forestry tires business unit. “TLC represents a strategic milestone in our new approach to serving farmers with mobile professional tools to boost a farm's productivity while reducing operating costs.”
Versions of the app in a variety of other languages as well as one that uses American measurements will be released soon, Trelleborg said.
