Claas has started its lead up to Agritechnica 2019 well, claiming three Silver Innovation medals.

The awards were for technologies found on the Lexion 6000/5000 ‘straw walker’ combine harvesters and the new Jaguar 900 and 800 series forage harvesters.

The first silver medal was for the new CEMOS Auto Performance system which is a combined engine output/forward speed control on forage harvesters.

Claas Harvest Centre product specialist Luke Wheeler says the CEMOS Auto Performance is a welcomed addition to the new Jaguar range.

"Claas is recognised as a world leader in machine optimisation systems and now this proven technology has been applied to its forage harvesting platforms."

The CEMOS Auto Performance system automatically regulates engine power and driving speed according to harvesting conditions, and as loads increase so does engine power, while forward speed is reduced.

"Conversely, engine power is reduced automatically if the load decreases," Wheeler says. "The goal is to avoid abrupt load changes whilst maintaining a relatively constant engine speed – this results in an even crop flow, higher operational reliability and lower fuel consumption–plus it makes life so much easier for the operator."

The second award was for the new CEMOS Auto Chopping system.

"This system continuously determines moisture content and straw throughput before automatically adjusting the positions of the counter knife and friction base in the chopper to best suit the current conditions," Claas Harvest Centre product manager Steve Reeves says.

"Using the CEBIS terminal, the driver simply specifies whether they want the highest chaff quality or the highest efficiency.

"This technology can reduce fuel consumption by 10 per cent."

The third medal was awarded to the APS Synflow Walker, an all-new threshing unit that Claas says sets "new standards for threshing and separation performance".

This all-new threshing unit features a 450mm pre-accelerator drum, a 755mm threshing drum and an additional 600 mm separator drum," Reeves says.
"The large drum diameters create low contact angles that, together with the synchronisation of the drum speeds, enable a straight, gentle and fuel-saving crop flow.

"This innovation means CLAAS can now offer high-performance twin-rotor and straw walker harvesting platform to the Australian market," he adds.

The three innovations will be available on machines delivered in late 2020. Stay tuned for more regarding these three innovations as we cover the upcoming events at Agritechnica 2019.
