Hutchinson Industries Displayed Money Saving Solutions at MINExpo: Tire Saver Shields and Mobile Crane Wheels

Hutchinson Industries, Inc. exhibited at the MINExpo International Trade Show in Las Vegas Nevada, September 13 — 15, 2021. 

Hutchinson Industries Inc. is the premier manufacturer of engineered mobility solutions for wheeled and tracked combat, security, off-road, and commercial/industrial vehicles. As the number one supplier of wheels to the U.S. military, Hutchinson is pleased to offer the same type of technology to the mobile crane and mining industry.  

Mobile Crane Wheels

The Hutchinson 2pc bolt-together lightweight aluminum wheel can save up to 60% of the weight of a comparable steel wheel, without compromising strength. As emission standards continue to increase, so will the need for aluminum mobile crane wheels.

Hutchinson Mobile Crane Wheel Benefits;

  • Reduced gross vehicle weight and operating costs due to lower “un-sprung” weight
  • Potential of reduced exhaust emissions and improved fuel savings
  • Reduce assembly and disassembly time
  • Deflation Safety System (DSS), a valuable safety upgrade for multi-piece bolt-together wheels; adds a layer of protection and prevents accidents when disassembling a wheel

 Sidewall Protection For Your Tires

The Hutchinson Tire Saver Shield™ provides “Military Tough” protection to the highly stressed sidewalls of industrial vehicle tires and ensures the continued operation of equipment in the most difficult conditions. 

Tire Saver Shield™ is made of heavy-duty reinforced material, resistant to tearing and perforation. It creates a barrier between the tire sidewall and damaging terrains such as curbs, rocks, metal objects, rebar, and other harmful debris. The use of the Tire Saver Shield™ prevents sharp objects from destroying the tire sidewall.

Benefits of using Hutchinson’s Tire Saver Shield™ 

  • Shields the tire sidewall against penetration and other ground induced crack initiation
  • Aligns with the sidewall profile at different tire pressures
  • Made of non-combustible material
  • Maintains tire operating temperatures at normal levels
  • The best alternative to tire chains
  • Fits on all kinds of rim designs
  • Easy mounting and dismounting

Hutchinson’s Tire Saver Shield™ consists of extreme duty, reinforced elastomeric material. The composition of Tire Saver Shield™ ensures maximum crack and penetration resistance, especially in sharp-edged, rocky environments, thus providing effective protection of the sidewall. The installation of Tire Saver Shield allows OTR tires, to fully utilize the permissible tread wear limit.

Turnkey Solutions

Vehicle builders have special needs when it comes to adapting their platform to customer demands. Hutchinson can propose a turnkey solution, from concept to production, to accommodate special demand regardless of the potential production quantities. 

As your one-stop wheel solution, Hutchinson can:

  • Develop a concept
  • Optimize the design
  • Produce prototypes
  • Validate and certify the product to any standard requested
  • Deliver production
