rubber crawler track impresses

The technology company Continental was honoured with a total of eight prizes for its innovative products at the recent German Innovation Awards. The Trackman XP rubber crawler track impressed the panel with its innovative properties and user benefits.
Special anti-vibration technology combined with optimised tread design reduces vibrations by as much as 70 percent compared with conventional tracks, therefore enhancing ride comfort, particularly for applications with a high tractive force. Special additional technological properties result in a longer overall service life. Armorlug technology makes the tracks last up to 23 percent longer than comparable lugs, for example.
Rubber crawler tracks with integrated sensor technology also feature among the company’s future technological innovations. This technology measures and monitors the temperature of the carcass when the vehicle is in operation. Targeted monitoring helps operators of agricultural vehicles, for example, to improve the service life and efficiency of the components and to avoid breakdown costs.
