Dedicated port AGV tire launched by Michelin

Michelin has launched the Michelin X AGVEV, which it says is the first tire specifically designed for automatic guided vehicles (AGV) operating in ports, and the first time a port tire has been ‘EV’ marked.

The company says the new offering’s main features include a damage-resistant design and slick tread pattern, with the tire construction optimized for high loads. The compound is also formulated for low rolling resistance and the carcass includes a patch to facilitate fitting of a Michelin TPMS.
