AMAZONE & KRONE - COMBI PACK (1998)
Baler with inline wrapping
The Combi Pack is a baler which integrates the inline wrapping. Therefore the operations of pressing and wrapping occur both simultaneously and fully automatically. A sole operating man and one tractor are only needed for 2 operations. Thus, it results time saving and drastic reducing of costs. The pre-stretching rate of the wrapping film and the number of wraps are pre-selected (2 up to 8 wraps and 50 up to 70 % stretching). The bale tying, the tail gate opening, the bale transfer from the baler on the wrapping table, the wrapping itself, the smooth off-loading of the wrapped bale on the field, all the functions of the machine are automatically manned, started and controlled through a bord computer and hydraulic commands. On the other hand, manutention is considerably reduced and the bales therefore preserve their shape and a flawless holding allowing a perfect quality of waterproof wrapping in order to preserve the food-values.
Point of view of the jury: a major step for the wrapping, a considerable saving in time
