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.

“These digital technologies can help farmers to farm more sustainably, through systems such as AccuTurn, which automates headland turns and so minimises trafficked soil areas.  Full Article:

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
