Technology Spotlight: AGCO Connect

The foundation of Fuse smart farming is AGCO Connect, the machine-focused telemetry solution that connects a farm’s fleet, turning valuable agriculture and machine data into improved uptime and efficiency across the farm operation and throughout the crop cycle. AGCO has committed itself to fully connect all fleets, beginning in 2019, where customers can track and optimize individual machine and fleet performance. AGCO Connect provides not only the value of telemetry to the machine pool, but also creates the strong, broad foundation onto which other smart farming solutions can be built.

There have been many situations where AGCO Connect has helped me operate my business, but in my opinion, GPS location data is the most important. I have several fields in an area about 40 kilometers away, and when I send my employee out to a field, I cannot be sure where they are later that day. With the help of AGCO Connect, I can quickly check where they are and how they are progressing.”

Advancing Agronomy with SmartFirmer from Precision Planting

SmartFirmer puts eyes inside every furrow with a seed-firmer sensor that measures organic matter, moisture, residue and temperature. Farmers can now optimize hybrid selection, population, depth, fertility and row cleaners in real time—sensing their soil on the fly to ensure proper, consistent germination. Precision Planting specializes in the agronomic aspects of plant growth, developing precision-farming solutions that ultimately lead to better yields compared to conventional methods under the same conditions.

Digitalization of Manufacturing

The digital transformation of AGCO manufacturing continues worldwide. Lean enterprise philosophy drives core understanding of our business processes and value streams, allowing AGCO to identify and successfully integrate digital tools such as wearables, robotics, IoT, factory visualization and shop-floor integrated feedback loops with recordable and sustained results. AGCO plants around the world are implementing pilots and production-level use of cobots, hybrid laser weld robots, automated guided vehicles, 3D printing, augmented reality/virtual reality, machine sensors, exoskeletons, human sensor technology, and more.

Industry 4.0

Our global plants are rapidly becoming centers of excellence and showcases for Industry 4.0 manufacturing technology and processes. Global assembly lines have been modernized, with automated systems of welding, industrial painting equipment based on nanotechnology, and advanced measurement for quality control. People, processes, machines and products are able to make decisions based on real-time information.

Industry 4.0

Smart Manufacturing Gaining Ground

Using lean principles and augmented reality, AGCO has initiated a new era of how our machines are made. As new technology is introduced, we encourage our employees to problem solve in their areas, using their expertise and creativity to ensure potential gains in efficiency are captured. For example, the use of augmented reality technology has provided great value in assembly and quality processes where easy and quick access to hands-free instructions is needed. Now AGCO is piloting this technology in areas such as welding and paint preparation.
