New development the fertilizer tank truck AT4103

Ploeger was searching for an addition tot heir current agricultural machinery program. This has become the fertilizer tank truck AT4103 with a steerable point wheel fitted with a Torriani slewing ring bearing. This self –driven machine is suitable for spreading liquid fertilizer, dry fertilizer, digestate, vine rod, mineral fertilizers and plaster.

That is how the fertilizer tank truck has been designed. For controlling the machine the solution was a rotatable point wheel. For a correct and reliable selection of the slewing ring bearing for such applications, ATB Automation already has many years of experience. Therefore, in collaboration with Ploeger, we opted for the quality of a Torriani slewing ring bearing.

The many years of cooperation between Ronald Wouters (engineering manager application) of Ploeger and ATB Automation, gave us the opportunity to contribute with a careful selection of a suitable slewing ring bearing of Torriani to contribute to the new development of the ferrtilizer tank truck. Ploeger’s trust in ATB Automation has once again led to a successful project.
