The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) have included two technologies from New Holland Agriculture in their annual AE50 Awards. The awards honour the year’s most innovative designs in engineering products or systems for the food and agriculture industries.
New Holland Agriculture, a global agricultural machinery brand of CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI/MI: CNHI), have been included in the 2019 edition of the AE50 Awards. Companies from around the world submit entries to the annual competition, of which 50 of the best products are judged by a panel of international engineering experts as having the most impact in advancing engineering for the food and agriculture industries.
New Holland Agriculture has two innovations named to the top 50. The IntelliSense™ pro-active and automatic combine setting system, available on New Holland’s CR Revelation combine harvester, takes automation to a new level to address the challenge of maintaining maximum throughput while keeping losses and damaged grain to a minimum. Enabling the combine to react every 20 seconds by selecting the best action out of 280 million possibilities, it relies on cutting edge technology that includes the first ever cleaning shoe load sensor coupled with the next generation Grain Cam™ and electrically adjustable rotor vanes. An industry first, this ground-breaking feature delivers significant advantages to the customers’ productivity: increased daily output, reduced grain loss and improved grain quality. It also introduces important benefits for the operator: fewer decisions to take, enhanced comfort and driver confidence, less fatigue and a simple user interface.
The Intelligent Trailer Braking System is an innovative feature that automatically controls pneumatic trailer brakes. Developed for New Holland’s T7 Auto Command™ and T6 Auto Command tractors, the system delivers stability under braking with a trailer, particularly on low friction surfaces, resulting in greater safety by reducing the risk of a jack-knife. It ensures the deceleration rate of the tractor and its trailer are aligned when the tractor’s speed is reduced using its Continuously Variable Transmission alone.
