Perforated sheet metal for agricultural machinery

Effective ventilation and simultaneous protection against insects, dirt, dust and other foreign bodies – this is what can be achieved by using perforated sheet metal in agriculture. Machines and engines are shielded against soil and plant parts. Yet the perforated sheet metal also allows enough air through to prevent thermal effects and ensure smooth operation of the agricultural machine.

Design

Not only does the use of perforated sheet metal protect engines and machinery, but it also allows for customised surface structures – adapted to every agricultural machine. A homogeneous design can be achieved through the use of different materials, perforated shapes and forms. In addition, the robust properties of the perforated sheet metal ensure a long service life for the machines. It increases resilience to the demanding working conditions in agriculture.

Function

Perforated sheet metal enables effective ventilation and cooling of the machine parts through optimised air passage. It succeeds in preventing overheating and in using full power in an energy-efficient way. At the same time, it protects the engines and other components against foreign bodies such as dirt, dust and insects, which extends the service life of the machines and reduces the need for maintenance. Particles cannot enter the engine compartment or damage the agricultural machine in any other way. What should the perforated sheet metal for your agricultural machine look like?

engine-ventilation-with-perforated-metal
Fendt Vario800 Traktor

Engine ventilation cover Fendt Traktor types 800 and 900 Vario

Material: Perforated steel sheet 1.0 mm, powder-coated
Perforation pattern: Hexagonal perforations (also known as honeycomb), 64 % free area


Design and function:

  • Perforated sheet with conical beading to achieve the typical Fendt design
  • High air permeability guarantees optimal induction of cooling air for the engine compartment
  • Stable and robust shaping of the engine guard protects the interior from impact from stones, plant residues, etc.
Perforated sheet INEOS Grenadier

Individual protection and ventilation grilles for the Grenadier

Material: Steel, KTL + powder coated, perforated sheet 1.0 mm
Perforation pattern: Hexagonal perforations (HV 6 - 6,7), 80% free area


Design and function:

  • Optimized for air flow for engine cooling
  • Design development to get more air into the engine area (from 74% to 80%)
  • Durable protection of the engine from mechanical impact
  • At the front of the vehicle and below the bumper
  • Polyurethane foam frame prevents metal on metal friction and therefore corrosion 
  • Easy installation thanks to clip connections
  • Challenge: Ratio of hole size (6 mm), material thickness (1.0 mm) and margin width (0.7 mm), the fine 0.7 mm margins must not break during production
