Even more power for your harvest

The perfect feeding by the header is the basis for high performance. Due to the active transport the grain is always optimally supplied to the threshing unit.

Now the PREMIUM FLOW is even better

The completely new PREMIUM FLOW 700PF generation is setting new directions in harvesting performance.

With the new 700PF high-performance belt conveyor header, we have made the superior concept of active in-line feeding even better. The PremiumFlow now features even more performance, even less maintenance and even higher reliability.

With the active crop flow on the conveyor belts and the huge auger, the new headers convince with perfect and even feeding of your combine under all conditions. And it only takes 3 minutes to change over from grain to rapeseed harvest.

See for yourself. From 12 to 18 November 2017 at Agritechnica in Hanover. Hall 13 Stand C26.

Katja's Harvest Tour | USA 2017

In the upcoming months, we will be accompanying a German young talent as she embarks across the US for her harvest tour.

Before the great adventure, Katja explained, “I am from the beautiful Schrozberg in the south of Germany where my parents run a custom harvesting business.” The 20-year-old completed her apprenticeship at custom harvester Landtechnisches Lohnunternehmen Frank Scholz. After her graduation last summer, Katja moved to the US and admits: “Now I have fulfilled my dream of being in the land of unlimited possibilities.”

Katja is telling us what to expect in the upcoming months: „ The custom harvester Green Acres Enterprises has its home base at Elk City, OK. Every year they start with the wheat harvest here in Oklahoma, in the south of the country. Then they follow the harvest northwards to the Canadian border in North Dakota. Because of this we will be traveling a lot in the upcoming months"

Research Transfer Prize from IHK Heilbronn-Franken conferred

On April 3, 2017, Chamber of Industry and Commerce IHK Heilbronn-Franken held its sixth “IHK Research Transfer Prize” awards ceremony. Three outstanding cooperation projects merging science and business were chosen to receive the prestigious award.

The gold award was given to Zürn i-Flow project, a result of cooperation between Rolf Zürn, Zürn Harvesting GmbH & Co.KG, Schöntal and Steffen Wöbcke, Institute for Natural Product Technology at the Dresden University of Technology. Under this project, an intelligent and automated cutting platform for combines was developed wherein all components can inter-communicate and adapt to the individual conditions and needs of the harvested materials.

Kirsten Hirschmann, Managing Partner of Hirschmann Laborgeräte GmbH & Co. KG, vice president of the IHK Heilbronn-Franken and jury member, congratulated the project partners on their success. He also highlighted the intensive cooperation between project partners and the innovation of self-optimizing technologies, as they relate to the theme of knowledge-transfer. The resulting intelligent control allows between 10-15% of additional power.

To encourage cooperation between research institutes and companies, IHK offers special “Research Transfer Prize” to 3 successful projects each year. All submitted projects are evaluated on the basis of their innovation level, transfer of knowledge, application potential and economic impact potential.
