Key technologies, innovative product solutions and full service – Continental is the strong partner for agriculture. The technology company supplies modern components and systems for high-tech installations and agricultural machines from one source. The range of products extends from comprehensive instrumentation and camera solutions, through sensors and conveyor belt technology, and goes on to exhaust gas treatment. At the Agritechnica trade fair from November 10 to 14 in Hanover, Continental will exhibit its comprehensive portfolio for the fields of efficiency, environment and connected solutions in Hall 16, Stand G05, including high-tech solutions from rubber and plastic from ContiTech.
From sowing, through harvest and on to transport and storage: the comprehensive range of conveyor belt technology from Continental makes work easier throughout the whole agricultural process chain. Rubber tracks, which have been added to the product range since acquiring Veyance Technologies in January 2015, will be among the items displayed at Agritechnica. They offer a secure grip on soft yielding ground to heavy tractor units or combine harvesters, including those with drive powers above 500 hp. Banded V-belts with high breaking load and wide V-belts for variomatic and variator drives are used to transmit high powers under heavy load.
Tractor and combine harvester components can safely be lifted, driven and controlled with the new high-pressure hydraulic hose. The hose is extremely resistant to abrasion, flexible, and suitable for tight installation situations. An electrically conductive fuel hose protects the vehicle against self-ignition from flying sparks by preventing buildup of static charge. A pneumatic spring for the seat will also be seen, improving the ergonomics for the driver.
Further highlights from Continental include a fully programmable 12.1-inch display for more efficient working and compact, economical system solutions for low emissions.
