Underscoring its innovation leadership in material handling in agricultural engineering KELTEC, today showcased its array of innovative solutions at the World Dairy Expo in Madison, WI. The company, based in Kilmallock, County Limerick, Ireland, has proven its technologies to be robust, reliable and high performing in demanding environments and varying conditions.
Commenting on its presence at WDE, Thomas Sheedy of KELTEC Engineering said, "The North America dairy market is as progressive as it is compelling. We believe our offerings bring unique value and enable farming professionals to manage bales more efficiently and effectively than with any competitive solution."
The KELTEC Self Loading Bale Transporter, available in an 8 or 10-pack size, offers safe and efficient transport of bales. Its rugged design is ideal for long life and trouble-free use. The 10-pack can transport 72 bales per hour on a one kilometer trip, whole the 8-pack moves 60.
KELTEC's Bale Slice removes plastic and netting, while also splitting the bale on the feed passage or into round feeders. Because of its innovative design, where the blade cuts the bale from the bottom to the top, the bale stays off the wrap when it falls. The wrapping is forced upwards into its long clamps ensuring a strong grip on the plastic every time. The machinery uses hydraulic sequencing to operate the plastic grip and only requires one spool valve to operate the cutting jaw.
KELTEC's high level in the field of customized design and manufacturing can be found in numerous projects around the globe in multiple industries, including horticulture and cattle farming.
