What Cimbria’s turnkey plants have in common is that they meet the individual requirements that our customers have. A good comparison could be that of LEGO toys, which combine in countless ways. It is the same with Cimbria machines, which create unique turnkey solutions.
Based on the industry’s biggest and broadest product range, the optimum, customised solutions are developed in close collaboration between our customers and us. Indeed, if there is one particular area in which surpasses all others, then it is full flexibility.
As a member of the AGCO group, Cimbria is part of an agroindustrial company that includes Massey Ferguson, Valmet and GSI. GSI operates in several areas with equipment and complete plants for poultry, pig-breeding and grain storage, as well as being the world’s biggest producer of round steel silos. These are now incorporated into the company’s product range.
Cimbria and GSI make up the world’s largest supplier of equipment, complete solutions and technologies to the industrial grain and seed business. Production of equipment takes place at more than 20 locations all over the world. This includes a sales and service presence that has global reach and enables comprehensive professional insight into the local requirements that are applicable in each individual market.
One of the latest in the line of production locations is found in Biatorbagy, an industrial estate outside Budapest (Hungary). In 2014 the first part of the factory was opened, before being extended in 2017 so that it now covers more than 25 000 m2. It is at this facility that silos for the markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa are now produced.
Along with a conscious choice of sub-suppliers of, for example, steel and bolts, a new and high-tech production facility ensures the highest quality and uniformity in the physical product. However, when it comes to a product such as silos, correct design and configuration are just as important. Local conditions have to be taken into account, whether this involves the impact of wind, snow, earthquakes or similar. Such calculations are extremely complex – and at GSI are performed in a uniquely developed software application called HiStruct.
HiStruct performs complete optimisation, calculation and design of each individual silo and steel structure and automatically prepares configuration and production drawings, calculation reports, material lists, FEM analyses, as well as generating the 3D models that are used in complete layout drawings.
