Trelleborg TLC Plus from Trelleborg Wheel Systems took home the prize in the Young Industry Disruptor category.
TLC Plus from Trelleborg Wheel Systems is an advanced sensor-based check-up system that measures tyre pressure. It was initially presented at the EIMA show in Bologna in November 2018, followed by the SIMA show in Paris in February 2019. TLC Plus presents an innovative solution of measuring the tractor’s tyre pressure in real-time, and then comparing it with the optimal target pressure suggested by the TLC Plus App.
Lorenzo Ciferri, VP Marketing & Communications at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, has commented on the victory: “Our digital transformation process started some years ago based on our strategy of delivering innovative tools to customers to optimize their farming operations, improve the efficiencies of their machines and guarantee a sustainable development for agriculture. This award is a recognition of the fantastic team effort which started almost one year ago, with a dedicated internal group focused on delivering a solution with state-of-the-art technology.”
He added: “Adopting the right tyre pressure can reduce farming variable costs by over 20%. This is because this lowers fuel consumption, while increasing traction power and crop yields, protecting and enhancing the modern farming business. All of these benefits were highly appreciated by the jury.”
