KUHN was recently awarded an AE50 award from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).
An AE50 award was given to the patented I-DENSE system found on KUHN VB 7100 Series round balers, deeming this technology one of the year’s most innovative designs in engineering products for the food and agriculture industries. KUHN I-DENSE technology will be featured in the January/February 2021 special issue of ASABE’s magazine Resource: Engineering & Technology for a Sustainable World. For more details visit www.asabe.org/AE50.
The KUHN I-DENSE system is an intelligent density system, which independently controls the baler’s density settings based on crop conditions and moisture levels. I-DENSE pairs a twin tensioning arm system with measurements from a moisture sensor to automatically adapt the baling pressure according to different crops and crop conditions, without intervention from the driver.
Companies from around the world submit entries to the annual AE50 competition and up to 50 of the best products are chosen by a panel of international engineering experts. The judges select innovative products that will best advance engineering for the food and agriculture industries.
