Camso develops special tractor track protection system

LinkedIn +

Camso has unveiled an innovative new technology called Smart Track, designed to help improve the durability of tractor tracks using an embedded temperature sensor.

If the track reaches a certain temperature level, the sensor sends a signal to the tractor, ensuring that speed is readily adjusted in order to ensure protection.

“With higher roading speeds and fields farther away from each other, farmers are looking to operate at maximum transport efficiency. Our integrated solution allows for optimal machine speed while avoiding heat build-up, which can cause premature track damage,” said Martin Lunkenbein, service and aftermarket sales executive director for agriculture at Camso.

“The market is heading toward more specialized applications, toward larger, heavier and faster machines, and toward greater productivity. We offer the broadest range of tracks in the industry and keep expanding our range to meet the needs of the market. New technology releases such as Smart Tracks demonstrate our commitment to develop solutions that advance a farmer’s operation in terms of efficiency, and productivity.”
