Technological innovation for the agriculture weed control industry
Programme: Mechanical engineering / Industrial economy
Course: MT2554 Value Innovation
Corporate partner: Lyckegård
Challenge: The objective of the project was to analyze the agriculture weed control machine CombCut made by Lyckegård Group AB and find an innovative refinement of the CombCut.
Solution: The solution improves the coupling function of the rotating axises that controls the brushes which removes the cut of weeds from the knives.
Impact: The user friendliness for the farmers improves. It makes transportation between the fields easier.
Prototypes: yes, the coupling uses a female and male connection in the shape of a cone.
