Agricultural machinery industry

As a leading system supplier for fastening and assembly technology and as an international service provider, Böllhoff is a recognised partner of the agricultural machinery industry.

Characteristics

Over the past years, agriculture has become increasingly important. As a result of the current discussions on environmental aspects, apart from the classical role as a food supplier, this sector is now as well regarded as an important energy supplier.

However, the increasing demand also results in new challenges. Ever shorter product cycles, the use of new, lightweight and environment-friendly materials and an ever changing division of labour require innovative capacity and a high degree of flexibility.

Supply chain

Join us in developing the perfect supply chain for you!

Agriculture has repeatedly overtaken itself. Now, the conditions of an up-to-date food production have to be met. This is why the degree of technologisation is of decisive importance. The times when modern agriculture was a handicraft business are long gone - today it is rather an industry business. Requirements for production are accordingly high.

A long supply chain of many different components including a rise in value with every step requires efficient partners. As a full-range and system supplier, Böllhoff offers products and services for every part of the agricultural machinery supply chain.

Applications

John Deere Werke Mannheim - Mechanical solution for screw-locking

HELICOIL® lock nuts

HELICOIL® locknuts with integrated HELICOIL® screwlock allow repeated and quick assembly and disassembly of the steering wheel in agricultural machinery for repair and maintenance. Thanks to reduced clamping torque distribution, a precise preload-force is achieved if an even tightening torque is applied. At the same time does the clamping effect inhibit accidental loosening of the joint.

CASE NEW HOLLAND

Blind rivet nuts

Agricultural machines are exposed to strong vibrations. RIVKLE® blind rivet nuts are a well-proven solution to fasten a highly stable thread on thin-walled sheet metals, without cutting a thread or rework a thread. Coated sheet casings stay undamaged.

SAME DEUTZ-FAHR

ECOSIT®

At regular intervals, the numerous unloading points in the customer’s production are supplied with the most different DIN parts, parts as per drawing, fastening technologies of our own production as well as with other C-parts. Thanks to the ECOSIT® procurement system, logistic and administrative processes could be significantly reduced.

CLAAS

UNIQUICK® Vario with automatic feed system

For fully automatic screwing of conveyor chains for all series of combine harvesters, CLAAS employs the UNIQUICK® Vario screw system by Böllhoff. This stationary screw system is equipped with an automatic screw feed system in multi-spindle design. Per conveyor plate, two fasteners are simultaneously screwed. At CLAAS, the entire assembly process benefits from the reduction in assembly times and costs, from a wear-free operation thanks to maintenance-free guides and drag chains, from the high process reliability ensured by the automatic feed system, from controlled screwing and from the completeness check system.
