At the Agraria show in Wels – one of the largest farming shows in Austria – Pöttinger won the “Agrarfuchs” award in Gold award. This prize for innovation was presented to the AEROSEM for its unique concept offering a combination of pneumatic drilling and precision seeding.
The new generation of pneumatic seed drills – AEROSEM 1002 – has been completely revised by Pöttinger to deliver unique technology and the highest level of flexibility. Using the latest developments such as Precision Combi Seeding (PCS) and Intelligent Distributor System (IDS), these pneumatic seed drills enter a completely new league. Both systems have already won Silver Medals at Agritechnica, among other international awards. The AEROSEM was also named “Machine of the Year 2014″. Now a golden “fox” has been added to the line-up.
Unique concept in one machine
Precision Combi Seeding System PCS – Individual seed drilling technology integrated into a pneumatic seed drill With the new development of the AEROSEM pneumatic seed drill, Pöttinger have designed a unique capability, integrating individual seed drilling technology into a standard pneumatic seed drill. The advantages of both worlds have been united in one machine that is especially suitable for drilling maize and sunflowers. The drill is fitted with up to 10 individual seed elements for a row spacing of 37.5 cm or 75 cm (and 12.5 cm on the AEROSEM ADD). Application specific fertilisation is also built into this machine. Using the standard metering system with a distributor head add on, fertilizer can be applied between the seed rows. Grass seed can also be drilled simultaneously, combined with individual seed drilling, to provide optimum erosion protection. Another step into the future!
Unique patented IDS intelligent distribution system
IDS is a unique system worldwide that guarantees a consistent flow of seed to
each row, saving seed material usage. The unique, completely new IDS
distribution system meets all the specifications demanded by the market. It is
based on an electrical metering drive controlled by a POWER CONTROL
terminal or the tractor’s ISOBUS system. The distributor head offers the full
range of tramline widths, track widths, special tramline modes, dual tramline
systems and half width switching to the left or right. The seed flow is reduced
automatically for tramlines and half rail switching. All outlets are controlled by a BUS system.
Because any of the above parameters can be applied, the machine offers ultimate flexibility for every situation and requirement. That is top-class customer proximity. The new AEROSEM offers convenience as well as pure precision for every arable farming professional.
