Case IH forging ahead with ‘Farming 4.0'…but what is it?

Jim Breen for Agriland:  Case IH has publicly committed to aiding the development of digital agriculture by working with others in the industry to help farmers overcome barriers of adoption to new technologies.

At a recent workshop on digitising European farming equipment – organised by EURACTIV, an independent international media network specialising in European policies – the vice president for Case IH Europe, Africa and Middle East, Thierry Panadero, spoke about how digital farming represents the natural development of what the precision farming era has begun.

“While precision farming has enabled farmers to more easily gather data, digital farming is now allowing them to develop the application of that data and make their businesses – and the whole industry of farming and food production – more targeted and efficient,” said Panadero.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
