Kampag Named as Swedish Steel Prize 2019 Finalist

Industry & Regulatory News, Events, EMEA, Americas, APAC

Brazilian agricultural machinery supplier Kampag has been nominated as a finalist for the Swedish Steel Prize 2019 after developing a harvester feeder application to reduce wastage from soya bean farming.


The new feeder which has been named "Axial" as it optimises material flow from its axle, utilises blades manufactured from abrasion resistant, high-tensile steel which are set in a spiral configuration to maximise soya bean collection volumes and ensure continuous flow.


Kampag is nominated for its High Performance Feeder Modulus, a unique solution for soy axial grain harvesters that allows for increased yields through the gentler handling of the harvested crop.


Kampag managing director, Vanderlei Kamphorst, explains:

“In traditional feeders, we noticed that the components responsible for moving the soybeans between the entry of the machine and the axial rotor had a design that would obstruct the natural and continuous flow. They generated interruptions, which would damage the beans. So, we tried to create the new design of the modulus, changing the shape of the blades that are responsible for feeding the machine."
