Agriculture and livestock are known to be one of the first and biggest industrial fields. Growing global population and poor nutritional resources raise needs for agricultural mechanization systems that have more efficient and technological applications.
It is possible to enhance efficiency by performing more activities in a unit of time thanks to the popularization of mechanization systems in agricultural activities. Not only the rise in labor costs but also the time limitation of agricultural activities cause rigid and efficient machine systems to be manufactured. Driving systems with tractor pto (PTO – Power take off) shafts and electric motors are mostly used as power sources in agricultural mechanization.
High power is needed for harvest and after-harvest mechanization in the field of agriculture and horticulture, especially for long-distance horizontal and vertical conveyors, storage silos, product screening, classification, and grinding applications; therefore, driving systems are needed to meet those demands.
Feed mixer drives are commonly used for cattle and ovine feeding mechanisms. Designed with horizontal, vertical, or inclined options, feed mixer, and distributor systems can be operated with tractors or in a fixed form. In addition, large facilities mostly prefer TMR (total mixed ration) systems. In these systems, different types of feed and feed additives produced at industrial scales are carried from silos to feed mixing units through conveyors. After the mincing and mixing stages, feeds are carried to distribution wagons through belt conveyors, thus reaching animals. Livestock facilities need powerful gear unit solutions in both feeding mechanization and fertilizer strip and separation applications against variable challenges.
With its PYK – PYK PL series with tractor PTO driving an electric motor, PGR Drive Technologies meets almost all needs of fixed feed preparation systems.
Poultry industry is one of the most important fields of livestock sector in which intense production is carried out in a unit area. Feeding mechanization has an important role in poultry industry in which all activities should be carried out sensitively and systematically.
With its PX – PPC series, PGR Drive Technologies offers comfort to the poultry industry.
PYK series products that have wide reduction ratio and high resistance against heavy and variable loads in horizontal, vertical and inclined feed mixing systems provide optimum solutions in TMR systems for cattle and small cattle livestock facilities.
Developed for feeding systems of poultry farms, PX/PPC series are preferred thanks to their silent and trouble-free operations and lightweight structures.
