Automating the Sulky Fertilizer Spreader

LINAK actuators play a large role in many precision farming applications .

Slide controls must be exactly automated to accurately spread fertilizer.

With Econov, the time for opening and closing the shutter slide on the field boundary side of the X40 or X50 centrifugal fertilizer control can be regulated automatically. Width optimization can occur in real time.

No more manual control: time for precision

For this purpose, the machine is connected to a latest generation tracking device, as well as a GPS antenna to locate it in the field.

LINAK and Sulky F&E have succeeded through close collaboration in automating all the control processes involved with the fertilizer spreaders. These processes use multiple integrated LINAK electric actuators and a connection technique developed by Sulky.

Actuators adapted to the working environment control intake opening and closing as well as the distribution of fertilizer.  The latter is automatically adjusted for driving speed and spreading width.

The Sulky X40 and X50 spreaders are part of a series that incorporates a Tribord 3Di system on the right spreading disk for remote controlled boundary fertilization. A LINAK actuator shifts the distribution points for the fertilizer to a special shovel for fertilizing along boundaries.

The precision and simplicity of control of the Sulky Spreader and the reliable and accurate LINAK actuator are combined for the perfect fertilizer spreader solution.
