Australia is well known for having some of the toughest conditions on the planet so it’s fortunate that fast-growing global manufacturer Techking has developed some of the world’s toughest tyres.
Established in 2005 in Qingdao, China, Techking is a leading global manufacturer of high-performance, heavy-vehicle tyres designed for mining and construction sites, quarries and highways.
Focused on research, design, quality control and customer service, Techking has developed the best solutions to all the tough working conditions that Australian businesses encounter.
Techking designs, manufactures distributes and provides close, ongoing monitoring and evaluation to assist customers with high-quality truck tyres, and earthmover and industrial tyres, for on road and off-road vehicles.
Now distributing a wide range of on-road and off-road tyres to more than 160 countries and regions, the company is continuing to expand rapidly, reaching almost every corner of the world.
Since launching its Australian operations in Brisbane in 2019, the Techking’s innovative products are already playing a key role in some of the country’s largest coal and iron mines.
With warehouses in Brisbane and Perth, an upcoming expansion to Sydney shortly and plans for Melbourne, Techking and is ideally positioned to assist operators in the country’s two most resource-rich states as well as the entire country.
Research that pushes the boundaries
Techking tyres have been developed for longevity and performance with higher load capacities for commercial truck and bus, earthmover and industrial vehicles.
Since the state-of-the-art Techking Research and Development Centre was established in Qingdao in 2008, the company has successfully applied for 101 patents delivering an array of new innovations to the tyre industry.
While on-road truck tyres, such as those found on big rigs or heavy machinery, are designed for asphalt surfaces, this is a world away from the conditions in underground mines and quarries.
Built to endure a wide variety of applications, some off-road (OTR) tyres must not only be able to withstand extreme temperatures but safely navigate slippery and muddy terrain.
With a focus on innovative tyre design, research and development, quality control and tyre management, Techking works closely with its partners to deliver maximum efficiency for each project.
Through a suite of environment, safety and health strategies, Techking is committed to reducing environmental harm during production by developing innovative techniques to reduce carbon emissions and fuel consumption.
Techking has serviced heavy equipment manufacturers such as Terex Crane & ADT, Doosan ADT, Liebherr Loader, Oshkosh Airport fire fighter, JCB Loader, Atlas Copco LHD, Sandvik LHD, Dynapac paver. It also supplies tyres to world class mining and construction companies such as Rio Tinto, Arcelor Mittal, Lafarge, and Anglo American.
Pictured above are Techking’s 35/65R33 ETNT 4 Star tyres fitted to an Atlas Copco MT6020 underground dump truck at the King of the Hills gold mine at Leonora, Western Australia.
Proving extremely successful in initial trials, the tyre has been designed to carry heavy loads and maintain excellent traction under severe work conditions. Careful design of the tyre offers extra sidewall protection, heat release and self-cleaning between the lugs.
