With harvesters and tractors, CLAAS is one of the world’s leading agricultural technology companies. In cooperation with Fried, a new cabin roof will be used in the field at the beginning of 2022. Fried reveals the secret of success: The functions have been expanded, cost-saving potentials implemented and weight optimisation has been carried out in the new generation of roof modules.
From work lights and GPS sensors to air conditioning systems, a variety of electrical components are integrated into the CLAAS roof. Manufacturing a product of this size and complexity is precision work. This requires a lot of expert knowledge as well as equivalent production facilities, which should be suitable for the production of 4 m² plastic parts. CLAAS found a specialist for cabin roof production in the company Fried Kunststofftechnik. With an injection mould weighing over 50 tons, the module has been in production on the two largest injection moulding machines at Fried’s Urbach factory for over 14 years. Fried was able to convince with years of on time delivery and is now receiving the follow-up order from CLAAS.
