Silver medal for grain cleaning machinery

Better grain cleaning has won a silver medal for innovation at the Agritechnica machinery in Germany for German manufacturer Ambros Schmelzer and Son.

Zig-zag grain movement through the cleaner allows air to flow through it from all sides, for more intensive cleaning. Piezo sensor technology is used to lower losses to below 0.05% in this concentric zig-zag separator. ¦ Prompt and accurate weighing of the crop being harvested — or of the organic manure or mineral fertiliser being spread — has won an innovation silver medal winner for German manufacturer Fliegl.

The weighing system allows weighing in the field, for example, as grain is emptied from the harvester into the trailer. It records all weights.

The system allows legally secured billing, is universally compatible, relieves workload for the operator, and has other functions such as determining spreading rate.

¦ It is linked to the ISOBUS control and communications system for agricultural or forestry tractors and implements, which is also central to the Agritechnica silver medal winning IsoMatch In-demo and IsoMatch Simulator from Kverneland.

They allow demonstration of attached machinery, for example, so that a driver can become familiar with the workings of machines, but without actually having the machine on the tractor.

This allows the full potential of agricultural machinery and equipment to be exploited, through mounted implement training away from the field.

The new equipment is ideal for user training, or dealer demonstration to potential machinery customers, increasing understanding of the machine, and saving time.
