Bridgestone Americas is exhibiting its integrated portfolio of off-the-road (OTR) products, technologies and services at the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association Aggregates Academy and Expo (AGG1) and World of Asphalt 2019 Show and Conference, from February 12 to 14 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The company is located at booth #31089. It is showcasing the benefits of using products backed by integrated technologies to drive increased productivity for customers.
“Customers are looking for a competitive advantage and need partners who go beyond the standard product offering, and instead deliver service solutions that make their business, and ultimately mobility, more efficient,” explains Rob Seibert, Executive Director, OTR Sales, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations (BATO). “Technology is changing the way we all do business, and AGG1 provides Bridgestone with a great opportunity to engage with our aggregates and construction customers to demonstrate the value of tools—such as tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) and data management platforms—to help site owners anticipate, and even avoid, unplanned downtime. For example, at AGG1 we will be showcasing the Bridgestone PressureStat system, which provides instantaneous tire pressure and temperature data as well as wireless, in-cab systems updates. In addition, we’ll demonstrate how it integrates with the Bridgestone TreadStat system to help forecast future needs and build efficiencies for our customers.”
Bridgestone will present the following products at its booth:
- PressureStat Tire Pressure Monitoring System: PressureStat offers quick access to important tire pressure and temperature data for OTR tires in the construction, quarry, underground hard rock and port industries. Additionally, it allows customers to manage tire pressure accurately in real time. This helps in maximizing efficiency and lowering the risk of unplanned downtime. The system was first launched at AGG1 2018.
- TreadStat Tire and Rim Management Platform–Owners and operators can monitor, optimize and report on their tires from anywhere in the world using the TreadStat tire and rim management platform. TreadStat uses a customizable dashboard to turn tire and rim related data into actionable insights to help avoid tire-related downtime.
- Quarry Segment Products–Bridgestone’s quarry customers move about 1,000 tons per second on average. They need to move it safely and efficiently. Bridgestone has designed OTR tires specifically for the quarry customer. The tires feature innovative tread patterns and a reinforced design to reduce sidewall damage. These features help to keep drivers and equipment moving, while meeting the harsh job site demands.
