An actuator LA36 built into the new generation of balers from Kverneland

The flexible solution for balers

Decades of experience with designing machines go into building every Kverneland baler that must perform impeccably all over the world. The latest generation of Kverneland balers gives you the assurance of unrivalled performance and an ability to cope with a wide variety of crop types.

The innovative design of FastBale provides high versatility, with the possibility to work in a variety of different modes, according to varying crop types and end user requirements. With its unique features, FastBale offers a truly flexible solution to all of your baling and wrapping requirements, while simultaneously increasing operator comfort and productivity.

The main objective in Kverneland Ravenna was to combine reliability and versatility to deliver more value with an efficient integrated baling system. The new series of balers are equipped with linear actuators from LINAK. The LA36, specifically, is one of the most solid and powerful LINAK actuators, designed to operate under extreme conditions. It is a maintenance-free product with a long lifetime and a high IP degree.

This high-quality actuator offers a very strong alternative to hydraulic solutions and other electric actuators. Achieving exact inputs is only possible using suitable and quality components. “The LINAK actuator LA36 fully meets these requirements”, states Mr. Valerio Casadei, Electronic Engineer in Kverneland Group Ravenna. And, “LINAK offers a high level of customisation, such as stroke length, special cables and connectors for easy interface with our control system, and furthermore LA36 comes as standard with a non-rotating piston rod eye".

"When partnering with LINAK® you get more than just a tough product in your hands, but also a team of engineers and technicians that have vast application and product expertise at your disposal”, continued Mr. Casadei.

The new generation of balers come with the new patented Kverneland PowerBind net wrap system. Thanks to the linear actuator LA36, the net is fed directly into the bale chamber by an injection arm in a flat movement angle to keep the net tight at all times, providing accurate and extremely reliable net injection.

Furthermore the net is constantly retained by the injection arm and when the bale is 90% complete the injection arm moves forward, ready for the net injection.

This adds to the reliability and productivity of the system as no time is spent picking up the net. Once the bale is completed the injection arm instantly places the net into the bale chamber.

Reliability and versatility combined in the new series of balers from Kverneland.

When the net is injected, the brake moves down onto the net roll adding tension to the net. During the net injection the feeder arm moves back to its waiting position and once the bale is wrapped the knife is activated, cutting the net.

The LA36 provides easy maintenance, control and fast installation with a wide range of customisable settings and feedback that will help tailor the movement solution to the specific application. A smart system that does not compromise on quality or lifetime.
