Fairing for forage harvester BIG X
ACCENTFORM has been commissioned by Bernard Krone GmbH & Co. KG for the high-performance forage harvester of the Big X 480-630 series. The organically shaped body segment in the typical Krone green-beige colour gives the agricultural machine an unmistakable appearance and ensures visual recognition on the market.
Overview of Big X body parts, manufactured by ACCENTFORM:
- Front protection, three-part
- Side protection, three-part
- Side flap, two-part
The GRP surfaces up to a size of 2.0 x 3.5m can be produced extremely economically in quantities of over 250 units per year using the conventional RTM process. With the help of the photo gallery and our video, you can easily follow the individual production steps from cutting the glass fibre mat, RTM injection and assembly of the components to delivery of the GRP cladding.
The RTM process (Resin Transfer Moulding) at ACCENTFORM offers the advantage of a finely divided work content due to the designed production structure.
This makes it possible to quickly and safely train employees in the individual production steps. This ensures process-reliable production and high flexibility in the output quantity.
After the trimming necessary for the process – which at ACCENTFORM is carried out by a robot – reinforcing and adaptation parts are glued to the inside of the body parts.
To ensure a permanent and secure adhesive bond, the KTL-coated metal parts are bonded using a 2K MMA adhesive.
