Humans have strived for new, innovative technology since the dawn of civilization, particularly in how we obtain our food. But we’ve come along way since the inventions of the wheel and cotton gin.
Technology is accelerating at an unprecedented rate, and the agricultural industry is reaping the benefits. Inventions are becoming more and more advanced and practical.
In this increasingly high tech world, here are some ways agriculture companies are employing heavy machinery.
Heavy Machinery and Technology
In the agricultural industry, the implementation of software into farm equipment is perhaps most notable. Equipment such as yield monitors, GPS systems, and seed monitors are making farmers’ lives easier by providing precise assessments.
One of the top recent advances in heavy machinery is a technology innovation that highly improves grain yield. Two large liners take turns inflating and deflating and gently push leftover grain into a conveyor trough. The process enhances the cleanout process to 99% and eliminates the risk of auger entanglement.
Not only does it improve crop yield, but it also eliminates the hassle of cleaning the machine’s bin floor.
After the process is complete, the device shuts itself off, saving even more time.
Farmers’ challenges with these new technologies stem from different companies not interfacing with one another. Once these technologies synchronize, however, it will be an exciting time to be a farmer.
The improvement of industrial brakes is another sign of the many advancements to heavy farming machinery. The agriculture industry is about efficiency and durability. Cost-effective disc brakes that last longer and have improved durability help farmers enjoy longer periods of low maintenance on their machinery.
These brakes are reliable and affordable, improving the dependability and durability of farmers’ heavy equipment.
Farming machinery comes with the unfortunate risk of blockage. Containers, belts, and shoots are all prone to blockage. Industrial vibrators reduce the chances of blockage by continually shaking material. This ongoing shaking alters the flow enough to minimize obstructions, and reduce material build-up if blockages do occur.
Industrial Vibrators have a wide range of applications that make them extremely valuable to the agricultural industry. Improving their design, and tailoring specific vibrators to specific applications is an ongoing process. But, thanks to the design improvements, farmers are enjoying more peace of mind than ever.
Custom Machining and Fabrication
Because technology is advancing so quickly, farmers are able to get specialized attention for their specific needs. Processes such as laser cutting, water-jetting, bonding, riveting, and other services can now produce a customized assembly.
Companies are simply designing products that suit the farmer’s individual needs more than ever.
The Agricultural Industry is Heavier than Ever
Farmers have always used heavy machinery. That’s not what’s changing quickly in the agriculture industry. What is changing, however, is the quality of the machinery farmers are using.
Today, more than ever, the agricultural industry relies on science and industry for its improvement. Advancements such as those made in the field of industrial brakes are cutting down on farmers’ maintenance costs. Software devices such as yield monitors improve farmers’ accuracy. And customization is offering high tech solutions to heavy machinery that simply didn’t exist prior.
We live in an exciting technological time full of industry and highly mechanized processes. It’s essential to look for which of those processes you can potentially benefit from.
