Fielding-TEST IN WEIFANG

Last week one of many more tests for our high-density-baler-machines took place. We were in Xiangzhou Town, which belongs to Zhucheng in Weifang (Shandong Province, China), a few kilometers southwest of Qingdao, where our production is based. Wheat straw was tested. The conditions are comparable in no way to Germany; In China, there are very different climatic zones. From the type of straw or the length to the degree of humidity, it is important to find out how far our machines have to be utilized, adjusted or modified. Therefore German standards are limited; A machine for the Chinese market, must be able to do more, endure more. We thank our team Arne Krüger (Production Manager), Zhang Qixian (Team Leader), Lucy Xin (Translator), Julia Su (Sales Manager), Yu Guangming & Diao Xiaowei (Workers). We also thank Maschinenfabrik Stolpen and their employees Thomas Bergmann (construction) & Stefan Jacobi (construction).
