Tente Rollen-GmbH is a family-run company with over 25 subsidiaries and around 1,500 employees at six production sites throughout the world. Since it was founded in 1923, it has been constantly reinventing both the wheel and the castor, enabling it to offer these two everyday items in numerous variations, often adapted to specific customer requirements. The company is a global market leader in the medical sector with its patented centrally lockable castors for hospital and nursing beds and hospital furniture. Besides premiering a host of new products and materials for a variety of different applications, Tente is also at CeMAT 2018 to showcase new solutions for trade and industry customers.
The exhibits in Hannover include the patented ergonomic e-drive starting aid for order-picking and transportation carts that helps users move heavy loads up to 500 kilograms effortlessly and without physical strain. Tente customers will also have access to a greatly enhanced product range, thanks to new rubber grades such as Elastech conductive, Elastech antistatic and Elastech plus, which boast optimized rolling and swivel resistance. The Elastech plus product family is also ideal for use with the e-drive starting aid, as the low starting resistance helps conserve the batteries.
The new Ultratech series, based on a high-performance polyurethane and also on show in Hannover, ensures scientifically tested higher speeds, lower wear and greater cost-efficiency. A specially designed version for outdoor use and wet conditions is also available. The service life of the high-performance polyurethane in the Ultratech series is twice as long as standard polyurethane.
