EMILY - V-CUT (2019) - 2 stars
The Twine/Netting Cutting Door
The patented V-Cut system helps to extract netting and twine
on all the turbine straw spreaders in Emily’s Sigma range. This
innovation enables the mechanical cutting of bindings from
any round or square bales for the easy extraction of twine and
netting by the user.
The cutting of the bindings by two hydraulically controlled
blades means that farmers no longer have to go inside the
straw spreader and can extract twine/netting with no physical
effort. The cutting system is controlled by an external control
mounted on the side of the straw spreader. This control has
one function for cutting bindings and another for opening/
closing the door. Users no longer need to use manual cutting
tools, such as cutters or knives, or to climb back into the cab,
ensuring greater safety and convenience. The V-Cut system
saves farmers considerable time as no manual action is
required. The farmer just needs to retrieve the twine (or netting)
after cutting. Twine/netting extraction is far easier thanks to
the cutting position (underneath the bale).
The V-Cut is completely built into the straw spreader’s door
to preserve the machine’s compactness and for optimum
protection of the system.
Point of view of the jury: improves working conditions
Award-winner testimony : The straw blower SIGMA has been presented at SPACE 2010, we offered only one model then. The Innov’Space award gave to SIGMA an optimal visibility for its launch.
Since 9 years, numerous options have been added and new models have been launched.
In 2019, the Twine/Netting Cutting Door V-cut also received an Innov’Space award. Today, the straw blower SIGMA range counts 16 models and we are honored to be part of the TOP 100 of Innov’Space. Innov’Space is a key moment, essential each year, which highlights the research and innovation made by the companies. It is also the engine of motivation for all the teams of a company.
