How Tech Helps Create the Perfect Tractor Attachment

As the hype around how AI grows, here at JF Hudson we have long put technology to good use for customers. Our Compact Front Boxes and tractor attachments are created with the help of innovative technology to design farmers products better, faster, and more cost-effectively.


SOLIDWORKS Design To Manufacture


I use SOLIDWORKS software to create products capable of tackling tasks required by farmers and agricultural contractors. It is an ideal agricultural engineering design solution given its specialist tools to simulate complex machinery made up of any parts while ensuring it can cope with the demands asked of it.


Traditional Design To Manufacturing Systems Can Waste Time, Effort and Money


Agricultural machinery can be expensive given the number of parts and assembly involved. Using Computer Aided Design (CAD) you save time and money from the very start of the process. CAD reduces reliance on prototypes as you can virtually test your designs before anything physical has been created. The SOLIDWORKS simulations clearly display any weak areas that could cause issues, you can then adjust the design to increase a product's efficiency and reliability. All this before any steel has been cut.


The short video below shows how these factors are taken into consideration during the process of designing the Wrap & Twine attachment and one of our Crop Rollers. Here I am using SOLIDWORKS to produce a design that has the strength to carry 12 rolls of bale wrap.


Being an agricultural engineer I love the functionality of CAD and computer aided manufacturing (CAM). Along with using it to produce out standard range of Compact Front Boxes and Crop Rollers, it allows us to offer customers a bespoke 3D design and build service. If you have an idea for a tailormade Compact Front Box or tractor attachment, get in touch and we will be happy to make it a reality for you.
