International technology company Continental is further expanding its industrial-related business. Technologies for construction, aggregate and material handling machines and vehicles will come increasingly into focus, especially in the North American industry markets, says the company.
“Digitalization is also one of the trends in the transforming construction world. Precisely in this efficiency-driven business the question arises of how to gain the most benefit. We intensively listen to our customers because it is extremely important for us to add mutual value,” said Hans-Jürgen Duensing, member of the Continental executive board. He added that CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 in Las Vegas has given the company an excellent opportunity to build up and further strengthen beneficial relationships with its customers. With its solutions, Continental contributes to safe, efficient, clean and comfortable mobility.
In Central Hall 3, booth No. C32986, Continental displays tailor-made solutions including products, systems and services specifically designed for the construction and aggregate industries to meet its customers’ individual needs from a single source. The portfolio of products that is on display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG includes earthmover and construction tires, conveyor belting, rubber tracks, industrial hoses, power train belts, vibration control systems, advanced multi-purpose instrumentation and displays, 360-degree camera systems and control units as well as a variety of services. With six tires showcased including the ContiEarth range as well as the brand-new TeleMaster, Continental says it recognized the needs of the earthmoving and construction industry and expanded its comprehensive specialty tire portfolio.
Offering a wide variety of instrumentation solutions that range from the single dial-type gauge to the fully programmable 12-inch terminal, Continental follows the trend toward connected vehicles, making vehicle operators lives easier by displaying information clearly. The display and terminal solutions improve everyday working life on the construction site, Continental says.
An on-board telematics unit transmits data from and to the vehicle, allowing Continental to support more efficient work. For machinery leasing, data about the duration and place of use can be stored for billing purposes.
