Introducing a new machine to the market is a complicated and tedious process. Testing the prototype is one of the key stages. This helps eliminate any problems and improve the machine before it reaches the customer. In Pronar we attach great importance to this and it is why the new MBA 4512g compost windrow turner undergone testing in real working conditions. We trusted people who work on such machines on a daily basis.

The testing of the MBA 4512g compost windrow turner was supervised by experienced specialists of the Implementation Department and the PRONAR Research and Development Centre. Their task was to create the best machine designed to meet the challenges posed by users and capable of performing reliably in all operating conditions.

First, the prototype has undergone internal tests. During the testing, data on the machine’s operation was meticulously collected – not only from electronic systems, but also from operator. As a result, it was possible to optimize not only the operation of installed components, but also to refine ergonomics and operational safety. Each piece of information is thoroughly analysed and, if impact on the prototype’s operation is considered significant, construction modifications are introduced.

After a series of internal tests, we passed the machine to our partner. There, with the participation of experienced employees, the reversing machine worked in its natural environment under variable load.

The opinion of users who work with the machine daily is extremely valuable and allows us to match it even better to the market needs. Any adjustments to the machine settings that may be required in the course of field testing are made by a team of designers, who also oversee the tests at this stage.

Both internal and field testing phases produce a wealth of information that allows our engineers to design a fully refined machine that is ready for sale. This information is also very useful in the development of subsequent models and facilitates the introduction of improvements and additional accessories when the machine is already on the market.

Successful testing phases ensure that future machine users will enjoy long machine life and 100% confidence during operation.
