With the constantly growing world population, the demand for food is also continuing to grow. There are already over 7 billion people living on our planet today, and this number is continuing to increase.
According to a new study, twice the amount of maize, rice, wheat and soy produced today will have to be harvested by 2050, and the resulting increase in agricultural surface processing will in turn cause the proportion of extremely large agricultural machinery and harvesting equipment to grow as well. Multiple annual harvests are also placing new demands on technology: The current topic: quicker, more powerful, more efficient machinery with longer service lives.
ttv recognised this requirement in good time, and is contributing to longer service life and optimised service quality with a range of innovative products. The best example of this is the ttv cassette seal, which is made from advanced materials to ensure an extra-long service life thanks to increased wear and abrasion-resistance. But the ttv engineers have also made sure that they are easy to exchange. "Thanks to the optimised seal design, it is now possible for even the most secluded farming operation in Siberia to exchange the seals on the job", says Harald Nitzschke with a grin.
