AGRICULTURAL MACHINERY EMBRACES TECHNOLOGY
Agricultural machinery is becoming increasingly technological. Touchscreens which enable fast, intuitive control of machines, and satellite control systems for machinery and other types of equipment, are working alongside the solid power of tractors, harvesters and telescopic handlers.
E Deutz-Fahr, a brand-name of the Same Deutz-Fahr Group, based in Treviglio (Bergamo), is characterised by its particular focus on technology.
The “precision farming” products designed and manufactured by Deutz-Fahr include such devices as a screen in the tractor-cab which incorporates all the essential functions of the machine.
The latest in this family of products, the iMonitor2, uses a touchscreen that ensures rapid and intuitive commands, and is integrated with the Agrosky satellite guidance system.
The i-Monitor2 is the most innovative, simple and intuitive advance in the development of the multi-media interface, specifically designed to programme and manage the many functions on board the tractor and planned down to the finest detail to answer the need for complete control. In addition, thanks to its versatile design, it can be personalised to suit every individual machine on which it is installed, adapting to its particular features to maximise productivity and efficiency.
Another technological wonder is Agrosky, an advanced precision farming device developed by Deutz-Fahr for the satellite control of tractors and implements.
It uses a cutting-edge system to connect to satellite receivers, enabling automatic guidance of the machine. The operating method is highly sophisticated while also very simple.
Using satellite mapping, the system identifies the ideal course to follow and automatically guides the tractor, directly manoeuvring the steering-wheel.
This allows the operator to concentrate totally on directing the work and controlling the equipment. The Agrosky range of products have been designed to increase efficiency, boost productivity, reduce costs, save water resources, protect the environment and, most importantly, improve the management of the farming business. The system makes use of 80 satellites and the signals have to be corrected in such a way as to make them completely reliable for precision farming.
This feature is known as “differential correction” and not all the correction signals are available in every region of the world.
The Same Deutz-Fahr Group is one of the world’s main manufacturers of tractors, combines, diesel engines and agricultural machinery. It distributes its products under the brand-names of Deutz-Fahr, Same, Lamborghini Trattori, Hürlimann, Grégoire and Lamborghini Green Pro. The company’s main headquarters are at Treviglio, in northern Italy: the place in which the business was founded in 1927 by two brothers, Francesco and Eugenio Cassani.
The activities of manufacturing, sales, after-sales service, and spare parts distribution are shared amongst 7 production sites (in Europe and Asia), 13 commercial branches (in Europe, Asia and North America), a joint venture in China, 141 importers, and more than 3000 dealerships worldwide.
