Sustainability focus improves health in farming

Modern farming requires knowledge of animal welfare, process planning and handling, and business case optimisation. Sustainable production with healthy livestock and minimal loss must align with augmented efficiency. Electric actuator solutions help:

  • Reduce loss during feeding or when handling grain
  • Improve health in stables for animals and staff alike
  • Increase efficiency with flexible actuator control solutions

Animal welfare, optimal interior climate, precise feeding automation and safe grain handling link to profitable business models in modern farming. However, livestock and grain handling now demand flexible and reliable control systems. Customised actuator solutions provide safe opening of grain doors and elevators in grain handling facilities as well as perfect ventilation and climate controls in livestock buildings.

Reduce grain and forage losses
To stay ahead in the market, farmers need to minimise loss and get the most out of available resources. Electric actuators play a central part in the dusty environments of grain handling facilities. Installed in lifts and diverter valves, they help perfect commodities and minimise waste. The same applies to feeding automation, where farmers need to be able to optimise feed flow and quantities on a regular basis.

Perfect conditions inside stables
Like humans, livestock need optimal conditions in order to thrive. LINAK actuator solutions integrate smoothly with almost all stable ventilation and climate control systems, opening inlet valves and ventilation dampers and adjusting cover lifts. Tested to work in harsh conditions, electric actuators are unaffected by dust, moisture and even water splashes, and still provide the farmer with feedback and alarms in the event of power cuts.

Optimise efficiency with flexible solutions
Electric actuators not only use less energy, they also require very little or no maintenance at all during their service life. This helps reduce costs, minimise downtime and improve production. Feedback from the actuator helps maintain optimal positioning and the flexibility of LINAK solutions makes them easy to customise for any use or application a modern farmer may need.
