Since agricultural machines are practically always outdoors, the chains used in them are directly exposed to harsh conditions such as dust, dirt, cold and damp. Moreover, after long idle periods in the winter their reliability is repeatedly put to the test. To ensure their consistently high quality and reliability under such extremes, iwis comprehensively tests its agricultural machinery chains in production site laboratories, field test stands and other simulations.
During the harvest season flexible production and intelligent stock-keeping strategies ensure that spares are readily available for fast delivery. With the iwis agrisystems agricultural machinery centre in the German town of Sontra, the iwis Group has all the resources to meet the special requirements of the agriculture industry. Together with machine manufacturers, iwis agrisystems develops and implements tailored drive solutions.
iwis produces chains and systems for almost all common agricultural machines throughout the world. With an expanding global network of service centres, dealerships and agencies, agricultural machine manufacturers everywhere can take advantage of iwis’ range of solutions and services. In 2011 iwis has opened another new subsidiary in Brazil’s state of Rio Grande do Sul, making its know-how, services, and products available in that region.
Chains and systems for agricultural machinery are part of the iwis group’s full product line of drive and conveyor chains, which also includes precision and high-performance roller chains, conveyor chains, maintenance-free and corrosion-resistant chains, power and free conveyor chains, special-purpose conveyor chains, flyer chains, flat-top chains and modular belts as well as timing drives for the automotive industry.
