Har­vest­ing machines – hid­den inno­va­tions made of rub­ber and plastic

The effi­cien­cy and reli­a­bil­i­ty of har­vest­ing machines form the basis for a good har­vest. The focus is increas­ing­ly on effi­cien­cy and envi­ron­men­tal com­pat­i­bil­i­ty. Inno­va­tions in har­vest­ing machines are not always vis­i­ble at first glance, but they are direct­ly evi­dent when they are used in the field. We sup­ply key com­po­nents and assem­blies that are used by lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of agri­cul­tur­al machin­ery in com­bine har­vesters or mow­ers as orig­i­nal equipment:


We achieve real inno­va­tions in these agri­cul­tur­al machin­ery com­po­nents in the inter­nal­ly installed machine parts through mate­r­i­al exper­tise and spe­cif­ic pro­duc­tion knowl­edge in the field of plas­tics and rub­ber. Because only the right mix­ture of mate­ri­als and spe­cial­ly adapt­ed pro­cess­ing in pro­duc­tion guar­an­tee the resis­tance of the com­po­nents and more com­plex assem­blies to chem­i­cal influ­ences from the crop.

At the same time, they ensure reli­able use under var­i­ous cli­mat­ic con­di­tions. The com­bi­na­tion of light­weight plas­tic with elas­tic rub­ber cre­ates inno­v­a­tive com­po­nents that com­bine stiff­ness, notch tough­ness and elas­tic­i­ty in a sen­si­ble way and fit per­fect­ly for every application.

Mold­ed rub­ber parts and plas­tic solu­tions are increas­ing­ly replac­ing the heavy and inflex­i­ble steel parts in machines. By work­ing direct­ly with the man­u­fac­tur­ers of har­vest­ing machines and tak­ing on tasks in pro­to­type devel­op­ment, we know the require­ments of the agri­cul­tur­al indus­try. This is how the devel­op­ment part­ner­ship with the JÄGER Group cre­ates real advan­tages for you!


Prod­uct devel­op­ment for har­vest­ing machines

A farmer needs har­vest­ing machines that work reli­ably, gen­tly and effi­cient­ly in the short time win­dows of the har­vest­ing sea­son on his soil and with his crop. This is why we devel­op assem­blies and com­po­nents for agri­cul­tur­al machin­ery with com­po­nents made of rub­ber and plas­tic. Their dura­bil­i­ty and flex­i­bil­i­ty enable them to be used when need­ed. The crop must be har­vest­ed quick­ly and processed and trans­port­ed gently.

The assem­blies we devel­op for har­vest­ing machines con­tribute to the reli­a­bil­i­ty of the machines through their spe­cial abra­sion resis­tance dur­ing oper­a­tion. Togeth­er with you, we devel­op indi­vid­ual pro­to­types that are tai­lored to your spe­cif­ic require­ments. Our test pro­ce­dures sim­u­late the use of the prod­ucts and thus reduce the need for field tests. This also saves valu­able devel­op­ment time when devel­op­ing new har­vest­ing machines.


Light­weight com­po­nents are par­tic­u­lar­ly in demand in agri­cul­tur­al tech­nol­o­gy. By devel­op­ing the light­weight idler, we cre­ate a real advan­tage and can thus save sev­er­al kilo­grams of weight on beet har­vesters. Find out about oth­er advan­tages in our case study!


Inte­grat­ed indi­vid­ual devel­op­ment for a long prod­uct life cycle of agri­cul­tur­al machinery

In our sup­ply chain man­age­ment, the indi­vid­ual ser­vice mod­ules com­ple­ment each oth­er to form a com­plete pack­age tai­lored to our cus­tomers’ needs: cus­tomer-spe­cif­ic con­sult­ing and ear­ly inte­gra­tion into our cus­tomers’ devel­op­ment teams is the basis for indi­vid­ual solu­tions for har­vest­ing machines. With effi­cient project man­age­ment, we make use of all pos­si­bil­i­ties for process opti­miza­tion. Our sup­pli­ers are also intel­li­gent­ly inte­grat­ed from the out­set with a high degree of trans­paren­cy and cost con­trol. In this way we cre­ate real added val­ue for all par­ties involved!

When devel­op­ing new or fur­ther devel­op­ing har­vest­ing machines, we focus not only on the prod­uct itself, but also on the process­es for its man­u­fac­ture, use, main­te­nance and recy­cling. This also sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduces the time required for re-pro­cure­ment and assem­bly of our sup­plied assemblies.

Togeth­er with you, we devel­op and test new rub­ber and plas­tic com­po­nents for the har­vesters based on the exist­ing require­ments. Our many years of expe­ri­ence con­tribute to the tar­get­ed expan­sion of the manufacturer’s com­pe­tence in sub-areas. Devel­op­ment times are reduced by con­stant avail­abil­i­ty and the use of our own mate­r­i­al analy­ses, test bench­es and pro­duc­tion solutions.
