AGCO production hub in Breganze and new Fendt combine harvesters
A coating system among the most advanced in the world, consisting of 13 suspended lines, 14 tanks, 39 pumps, 10 ovens and a powder coating booth, capable of withstanding a tight pace of work (10 combines per day). A robotized high-tech system for the welding of cutting platforms, a new centre of prototypes and a new area dedicated to shipments. Again, an engineering department connected with other counterparts of the Group worldwide and arranged according to a modular division of labor (with each department specialized in the development of specific forms and ready to share knowledge on a global level); the AgriDome, a visitor centre covering an area of 1,550 m². These are the numbers of the European Harvesting Operations of Breganze (Vicenza), where AGCO brands of combine harvesters are created and take form. Acquired three years ago, in just 36 months the North American production hub has managed to become a strategic reference point for the entire Group, a centre of excellence where cutting edge technologies are being developed for this sector of the market". The recent investments made in Breganze underline a strong commitment to the quality by AGCO – said Francesco Quaranta, Vice President and General Manager of Global Combines Harvesting – and over the last 36 months we have brought new products to market and elevated the quality of our manufacturing processes". These innovations concern closely the Italian market in which debut, starting from the 2014-15 season, the Fendt combines represented at EIMA International by the model Ibrida 9490 X (the flagship of the new X series) with undercarriage and Power Flow with 10.70 m bar; the 5275 C PLI and 6275 L MCS models with Free Flow 6.00 m bar.
Of course, during the Bolognese exhibition, the spotlights will be also on the Laverda combine harvester and in particular on the AL Quattro Evo with Free Flow 6.00 m bar. In other words, a period of great changes for agricultural mechanics and is just in our country that AGCO prepares the new challenges of the near future.
