A panel of experts from the Fork Lift Truck Association have put forward the clever technology for its prestigious innovation award. The CSEasy, launched little over a year ago, is the first tyre of its kind to be fitted with a torque wrench and no need for a mounting press.

Jill Rodgers, marketing manager for industrial tyres at Continental, commented: “With an adapter between the tyre and rim, the CSEasy eliminates any mounting press, accessory components and rim pool previously required. It also dramatically reduces costly vehicle downtime that has previously come when changing an industrial tyre. It is a market-leading product that we are very proud of. We are really looking forward to the awards evening and seeing how we compete with the best innovations from across the industry.”   

The winners of the coveted ‘Archies’ will be announced at the Awards dinner in Birmingham on Feb. 9, 2008. The ‘Archie’ trophy is modelled on Archimedes, acknowledged as the father of modern engineering. Winners are voted for by readers of the materials handling press and Fork Lift Truck Association members. Other categories include Safety, Environment, Ergonomics and Design Achievement.
