Agricultural Technology

Kendrion is a manufacturer of electromagnetic components for agricultural technology which are used in particular for agricultural and milking machines.

Electromagnetic actuators fulfill different jobs in farming implements. In harvesters, they are responsible to lock the shift knob in parking positions as well as serve as interlock of the knife and drum brake. In the round baler technology the solenoid starts the cutting process of the wrapping net while it actuates the flap as feed stopp in the pressing process of the square baler. Another field of application is in the tramlining control of seeding machines. Solenoids switch of the seeding process in the tramlines where seeding isn't needed.

Extreme requirements to surface protection in aggressive environments, to the tightness of the magnetic system and to its service life are just a few of the challenges our electromagnetic solutions can handle.

In order to meet these high requirements Kendrion offers special solenoid solutions for agriculture technology. Special materials and processes for surface treatment have been used to meet the particular environmental requirements. Bellows and other concepts to enhance tightness additionally protect the interior of the solenoid from soiling, thus increasing its service life.
