How many combine harvester fingers does a farmer replace in a harvest season?
Answer: enough to always want to carry a few on the field and then a small stock on the farm.
Combine harvester fingers belong to one of the most wearing parts on a combine harvester. The fingers - or knife guards as they are called in some regions - play an important role in holding the cereal in place while also having a shearing function. Much is demanded of this crucial part located on the cutterbar.
Combine harvester fingers must therefore be reliable while in operation on field. This realiability starts on the manufacting site where it comes into being. Simplified: The high-grade metal is transformed into the shape specified by the customer using specialist equipment and robust quality control.
Moller International is manufacturing combine harvester fingers at its TÜV certified facility with high quality equipment and processes including a range of cutting technologies.
Our combine harvester fingers are designed and manufactured according to international standards as specified from each of our individual OEM costumer.
We use high-end equipment including the following that we video-shot just the other day in factory:
- Precision forging hammer that provides a homogenous and very strong steel structure.
- Mechanical clipping press cut off all the flash around the combine harvester finger.
- Punching press that ensures holes have the for perfect fit to the combine harvester.
- Hydraulic Power Press that coins the combine harvester fingers so that the needed very narrow tolerances are maintained.
We also color powder paint the fingers. All colors and painting technologies are available in order to exactly match customer specifications.
We look forward to seeing you at the Agritechnica 2022 at our stand in the Systems&Components area.
