KUHN Group receives two awards at the EIMA

The KUHN Group has received two awards at the international agricultural machinery exhibition EIMA which will take place in Bologna in Italy from the 12th to the 16th November.

Indeed, the special jury, working under the authority of the Feder Unacoma (National Federation of agricultural machinery manufacturers) has awarded the highest distinction “Novità Tecnica”/”Technical Innovation” to two innovations presented at the exhibition by KUHN:
    • The TWINPACT plunger system of the LSB 1290 iD (intelligent-DENSITY) press, designed to produce bales with up to 25 % more density than conventional square bales. This higher density increases logistical efficiency and facilitates crop handling. The TWINPACT plunger is divided into an upper and lower part, which impact on the bale in two steps. This process avoids load peaks on the machine and results in a load comparable to the one exerted on the driveline of a conventional 120x90 (4x3) press model. This system allows working with tractors of similar size to those used with the 120x90 press. It also contributes to optimizing the power consumption.
    • The automatic fertilizer spreader adjustment AXMAT not only allows measuring the transverse distribution as soon as the user so wishes and at any time but also, in case of poor distribution, allows correcting automatically the settings within seconds during spreading without having to leave the tractor. Moreover, this system ensures perfect transverse distribution should the grain size change or for imported fertilizer of unknown origin. The device never comes into contact with the fertilizer, the sensor being placed underneath the spreading layer hence it is not subject to wear. It contributes to securing the real-time spreading work and perfectly meets requirements of precision farming.

For further information on these two innovations, visit KUHN at the EIMA between the 12 and the 16 November, Hall no.14 - stand B1 or check out the KUHN site dedicated to this exhibition at www.eima.kuhn.com .
