Sustainability focus improves health in farming

Being a modern farmer, skills within animal welfare, process planning and handling, and business case optimisation is required. Sustainable production with healthy livestock and minimal loss must align with augmented efficiency. Electric actuator solutions help:

  • Reduce loss during feeding or when handling grain
  • Improve health in stables for animals and personnel
  • Increase efficiency with flexible actuator control solutions

Animal welfare, optimal interior climate, precise feeding automation and safe grain handling link to profitable business models in modern farming. Handling livestock as well as grain today, however, calls for flexible and reliable control systems. Customised actuator solutions provide safe opening of grain doors and elevators in grain handling facilities as well as perfect ventilation and climate controls in livestock buildings.

Reduce loss of grain and forage
To stay ahead in the market, farmers need to minimise loss and get the most out of the resources available. Electric actuators play a central part in dusty environments around grain handling facilities. Mounted in elevators and diverter valves they help perfect commodities and minimise waste. The same goes for feeding automation where farmers need to be able to optimise feed flow and quantities regularly.

Perfect conditions inside the stable
Like humans, livestock need optimal conditions to thrive. LINAK actuator solutions integrate smoothly with almost all stable ventilation and climate control systems, opening inlet valves and ventilation dampers and adjusting cover lifts. Tested to work in harsh conditions, electric actuators work unaffected by dust, moist and even splashing water and still provide the farmer with feedback and alarms in case of power cuts.

Optimise efficiency with flexible solutions
Electric actuators not only use less energy – they also require very little or no maintenance at all during their lifetime. This helps reduce costs, minimise downtime and improve production. Feedback from the actuator helps maintain optimal positioning and finally, the flexibility of LINAK solutions make them easy to customise to any use or application a modern farmer needs.
