Van Halteren Defence is one of the leading suppliers of running wheels for military tracked vehicles. Since the start of this activity, we have supplied many different wheels to a large number of countries and vehicle manufacturers.
Today, Van Halteren is an expert partner in the field of running wheels for various vehicle manufacturers. In recent years, we have supplied the wheels for many newly introduced vehicle systems.
We have introduced improved wheels for tracked vehicles that have been operational for some time. In doing so, we always try to achieve an optimum between life-cycle costs, strength and weight.
At present, we have a number of proven concepts of lighter wheels that are suitable for higher vehicle weights. This is in response to the trend of increasingly heavy tracked vehicles.
We currently supply wheels for various tracked vehicles, including howitzers, infantry fighting vehicles, tanks, recovery vehicles, combat engineer vehicles and other applications. We have partnerships with rubber companies in various countries.
Besides supplying new wheels, we also focus on repairing used running wheels in order to extend their service life and reduce life-cycle costs. The repair process is very efficient and does not have a negative impact on operational availability.
