One of two SIMA Gold Medal recipients, Trelleborg launched its VIP (variable inflation
pressure) tire system, capable of automatically increasing and reducing pressure based on
load weight. The system, initially tested in Fendt combines, features a compressor and
enclosed sensing control unit in the axle that adjusts tire inflation to reduce compaction by
about 10% and increase crop yield by about 5%, according to Lorenzo Ciferri, marketing
director for Trelleborg. The system is still in the prototype stage and being field-tested on
wheat, Ciferri says.
