Modern-day agriculture has become more machine-intensive as farms get bigger to meet the surging demand for food and feed from a growing population. At the same time, many farmers around the world are struggling to meet the challenges of rising energy costs, land and water shortages, and environmental concerns.
This is putting pressure on farming equipment manufacturers, too. But fortunately, heavy and often unsafe machinery is starting to be replaced by new designs that specify lighter weight materials that don’t compromise on durability or strength. So how can companies like Agro-Masz deliver bigger yet more environmentally friendly, lighter machinery?
“With Strenx® tubes, we can produce stronger and lighter parts and equipment while maintaining all the necessary parameters. So as a producer, we can use less raw material. But what the customer gets is a lighter product that doesn’t break down as often and lets them keep costs down during everyday use. This is possible thanks to Strenx® structural tube steel in the frames of our plows,” says Paweł Nowak, owner of Agro-Masz.
