Hawk Engineering has teamed up with Avery Weigh-Tronix, Digi-Star(Topcon), and Agrimatics, all renowned businesses in agricultural weighing equipment in North America to bring this technology to the Australian market. We have engineered a range of retrofit kits to adapt this technology to fit most makes and models of feed mixers. The basic principle is to isolate & support the mixer body on scales or better known as load cells. For more information on how it works.
Feed mixer scales are now more than just a basic set of scales, they can now provide farmers with vital information & records of feed rations. The Agrimatics “Libra TMR” Indicator for example provides a revolutionary design that delivers a smart and simple way to build and manage your rations, pens, and feed groups. The Agrimatics “Libra TMR” boasts the following features.
Simplified Ration Management – Precisely track each ingredient in the mixer and what has been fed to each pen in a feed group.
Resize – Automatically adjust a ration’s batch size based on any loaded ingredient.
Mixer Timer – Set a custom timer after each ingredient and after the entire ration has been loaded.
Weighback – Track feed refusal by loading it back into the mixer as part of the next ration, accounting for each ingredient.
Feedings – Divide rations into multiple feedings per day (Ex. Morning 50%, Evening 50%).
Unlimited Remote Displays – View and tare live weights from multiple mobile devices within 400 feet of the mixer.
Feed Adjustment – Adjust the lb/head for a specific pen in a feed group without having to create a new ration.
Dry Matter/As Fed – Set the app to build and feed rations on a dry-matter or wet-weight basis.
Bunk Reading – Enter an amount from a specific pen to subtract from the next load, to account for feed refusal.
Data Sharing – Share TMR data through email and open with standard spreadsheet software. Cloud support through Agrimatics Aero coming soon!
UNIVERSAL LOAD CELL KIT
This kit suspends the chassis/bin above the axle or axles and the chassis/body is then mounted back onto the axle or axles through 2 or 4 universal load cells, this configuration is then also coupled with a tow hitch that also includes a load cell sensor to isolate the mixer chassis/body on the 3 or 5 point weighing system.
