Pronar Wheels as AGCO’s Partner at Agritech 2021!
In 2020, Pronar Wheels, as one of few suppliers of the AGCO group, was invited to participate in the 2nd edition of Agritech Supplier Summit 2021 as a partner of the event. The Summit was meant to happen in March 2021 but it was postponed to September as a result of uncertain situation connected to COVID-19 in Europe.
Advanced Welding Automation
Not so long ago, in one of our factories, we launched a high-performance double-wire welding system using MIG and MAG methods. It is called TPSi TWIN Push. Its concept was created at the Pronar Wheels Development Office and was implemented by a team of experienced engineers. It is the first such technologically advanced welding system in Poland and one of the few in the world.
President of the Republic of Poland in Pronar
On June 8, at our newly opened Pronar Exhibition Center in Siemiatycze, we hosted the President of the Republic of Poland, Andrzej Duda. The president summarizing his visit stated that our company is the undisputed “top of the top” in terms of development and technological progress.
What does the Pronar Wheels Development Office do?
The Development Office has existed from the very beginning of Pronar Wheels’ operation. It coordinates all activities related to the production of wheels. The most important of them include the design of products, equipment, production lines and devices for the production of rims and the development of manufacturing technologies.
Prima aprilis – Production of racing wheels
Last year, in our factory in Narewka, we launched an automated production line which allowed us the production of completely new types of disc wheels and the expansion of our offer with completely new wheels and designs. Our new acquisition allowed us to implement the plans that we had been preparing for many years. After months of testing, we can finally announce that we have started the official production of wheels for Formula 1 racing cars.
New hydraulic presses and manipulator
Year 2020 was a period of intensive development of Pronar Wheels, because we not only expanded the offer of our products, but also raised their quality to a much higher level. Last year, our factories were enriched with new devices that allowed us to increase production and introduce completely new solutions to our offer.
Top Agrar’s contest
Polish department of Top Agrar magazine initiated a contest in which the main prize is their new purchase, Ursus 1204 de luxe. But before the legendary tractor will go to the luckiest contestant, the machine will go though the renovation process in which not only the organizers of the contest are involved but also range of companies with Pronar Wheels among them.
The welding technologies
Welding is a process of critical importance for users of agricultural, municipal and recycling machinery. The choice of technology, welding methods and the resulting welds translate into, among others, on the strength or corrosion resistance of the machines themselves, because a properly made welded joint should not differ in strength parameters from the basic material being joined.
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Jan Krzysztof Ardanowski visited the Pronar factory in Narew on Friday. Visit of the government’s representative was an opportunity to meet Pronar CEO – Sergiusz Martyniuk and the employees of the company from Podlasie.
Pronar Wheels quality control
The high quality of Pronar wheels has made them applicable, among others in trailers, construction, industrial, forestry and military machinery. We make them in a unique cold processing technology. It is the high quality of production, confirmed by certificates, that made the world’s largest producers of agricultural machinery and tyres interested in Pronar wheels .
Research and Development Center
The search for innovative solutions and technologies is one of the conditions for the development of enterprises. However, it should not be an end in itself, since the most important thing is to be able to use the results of the research work in the economic circumstances and benefitting from it. The ability to adapt research and development activities to market requirements makes the company competitive and its services and products unique.
We plan employee trainings
Each year we conduct trainings in Pronar more and more often. Most of them concern newly recruited employees or transferred to a position with a completely different specificity than the previous ones. Last year, Pronar employees most often raised their qualifications in the field of electrohydraulics, service maintenance, casting defects and methods of preventing them, as well as operating cranes and forklifts. First of all, the main goal of these trainings is quick and effective preparation for new tasks as part of the duties arising from the given job. As a result, the efficiency, commitment and self-confidence of employees who are not afraid of making some mistakes while performing new tasks increases. The people who train them are Pronar employees with extensive professional experience and ability to share their knowledge.
MES software – faster product implementation
Implementation of innovative technologies, including more and more advanced programs such as from the CAE group (ANSYS and LS-DYNA), contributes to the successful and continuous development of Pronar. These programs help to detect weak points in the design of machines earlier. Without this new software it was only possible to locate it after a series of tests during operating hours. This, in turn, prevents possible damage to the structure already at the design stage. It also shortens the time of implementation of the product into serial production.
