Throughout time, agriculture has remained a staple in economies all over the world. Like any industry, the agricultural sector has been no stranger to industrialization and developing revolutionary technologies to streamline operations and scale to accommodate growing population demand. What once took days of human labor, now only takes hours with the help of new technology and machinery.
However, this increased efficiency brings unique challenges. More machines means more opportunities for machine and spindle failure, which subsequently result in costly downtime. It is important for those in the agricultural industry to employ regular spindle maintenance and repair schedules while introducing groundbreaking technology to their processes.
Agricultural demand shares a direct relationship with the global population. After growing by over 76 million in 2017, the world’s population is currently 7.6 billion and continuing to grow with staggering speed. With more mouths to feed and the agricultural industry responsible for supplying all the necessary crops, it’s no surprise that the industry has transformed and introduced new technology to streamline processes and improve efficiency.
Advancements in robotics and automated machines have revolutionized the agricultural sector. In many cases, the technological developments have introduced new devices and reduced the number of labor hours required by farmers. An example of this new tech can be seen in the growing popularity of lighter, automated tractors, and machines that improve performance, precision, and efficiency.
Increased demand, and reliance on new machines and technology, means the financial impact of machine failure and downtime also increases. In a time-sensitive industry like agriculture, operational halts leave fields unharvested and unfertilized, directly impacting the bottom line.
Much of this downtime can be reduced, if not prevented, by employing proper spindle maintenance and repair. Contact the knowledgeable professionals at GTI Spindle Technology to learn how agricultural spindle repair and maintenance services can benefit your operations.
