Plastics for the Agricultural Industry

Farmers need high-performance and low-maintenance agricultural machines to work their fields. No matter if in sowing, mowing or harvesting: A farmer must be able to rely on his machines at all times. The increasingly large and heavy agricultural machines also increase the risk of soil compaction with all its negative effects on flora and fauna. Therefore, light-weight, high-performance components are needed for construction of agricultural machines. We offer plastics specifically developed for such requirements. They are light-weight yet resilient and at the same time corrosion-resistant. This improves efficiency and service life of your machines. Renowned manufacturers of agricultural and forestry machines around the world rely on our materials.

Your advantages

  • Low density contributes to weight reduction and thus to fuel-efficiency of your agricultural machines
  • Long-lived thanks to high wear-resilience
  • Low-maintenance
  • UV resilience permits permanent outdoor use

Typical areas of application

  • Harvesting machines
  • Soil processing
  • Harvesting technology
  • Green land
  • Forest technology

Product examples

Moldboards

Robalon moldboards are about seven times lighter than conventional steel moldboards. This saves up to 180 kilos of weight in a 5 share plough. This will reduce fuel consumption by tractors by up to 14 percent according the official test result of the Austrian Federal Institute of Education and Research, BLT Wieselburg.

Grain lifters for harvesting technique

The service lives of Robalon grain lifters are up to three times higher than those of steel designs thanks to their high wear-resilience. With their low weight, they permit more than 50% weight saving at the same time, thus contributing to fuel efficiency of your machines.

Skid plates for threshers

Skid plates for thresher front attachments made of Robalon are very light-weight, with a long service life thanks to their high resilience. They are offered in self-supported and non-self-supported versions. More information about our offer for the agriculture industry are on the website of our subsidiary Röchling Leripa Papertech

Arrange technical advice

The performance and reliability of materials for agricultural technology are influenced by a variety of factors. These criteria need to be considered in order to make the right choice. Examples

  • Mechanical stress
  • Requirements to weight
  • Outer influences such as UV radiation and weather
  • Contact with lubricants
  • Construction conditions, dimensions and tolerances
