Case IH scoops a big pool of awards with seven of their agricultural innovations named as outstanding in the annual AE50 Awards
The awards honour the year’s most innovative designs in engineering products and systems for the food and agricultural industries are run by The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).
The prestigious awards, conferred by a panel of international engineering experts, are chosen on the basis of their impact on advanced engineering for the food and agricultural industries.
The 50 best products from around the globe are named on the final list. For 2020 recipients the awards will be presented at the virtual ASABE Agricultural Equipment Technology Conference (AETC) to be held in February 2021.
The Case IH award winning innovations all hail from the brand’s successful Customer Driven Product Design process. The process has proved to be key in helping farmers increase productivity, profitability and safety while at the same time reducing cost and labour.
Among the Case IH award winners is the AFS Connect™ Steiger® series, the brand’s largest and most powerful tractor range, offering the latest technology in data management systems to enable operators to adjust, monitor and transfer data as they want.
The redesigned, ergonomic cab with built-in telecommunications connectivity also enables remote display viewing for faster servicing and more efficient support.
The MultiControl Armrest design in the current Steiger and Magnum series tractors was also recognised with a separate AE50 award.
The Case IH LB436 HD large square baler (due for release in Australia in 2021) took out one of the awards, helping producers achieve maximum bale density and high-quality bales through a newly-designed bale chamber.
This model offers 22% greater bale density over the LB434XL model it replaces with an average bale weight of 500kg in bale dimensions of 120 x 90cm.
The 2.35m pick-up runs at 48 strokes/min and can produce on average 80 bales an hour, more than 40 tonnes an hour. You will need minimum power of 185kW (250hp) at the PTO to achieve this feat.
Case IH Axial-Flow® 250 series combines have also been recognised, the sieve pressure visualisation helping maximise cleaning system performance by equipping the operator with the feedback needed to save grain and make some important harvesting parameter adjustments.
