LEADING European manufacturer of spreading, spraying, seeding and cultivation equipment, AMAZONE, will be awarded three silver medals for innovation at this year’s Agritechnica.
The medal tally includes recognition for the company’s ‘SwingStop pro’ spray boom guidance system, which incorporates new ‘pulse width frequency modulation’ nozzle system.
Boomed-mounted sensors and electronics calculate the relative speed of each individual nozzle in real time and automatically adjust the spray output in milliseconds.
The system compensates any changes caused by the horizontal movements of the boom, resulting in unprecedented application accuracy across the entire working width of the sprayer.
Another smart innovation is the AMAZONE ‘SmartService 4.0’, which allows field technicians to ‘livestream’ their working environment to factory-based AMAZONE service specialists using smartphones, tablets or data glasses.
