EXPOFOREST 2018

A LOGGER’S BEST FRIEND IS NOW EVEN MORE ECONOMICAL, COMFORTABLE AND PRODUCTIVE

Ponsse offers the broadest range of products in the market for cut-to-length logging. Totally 18 machines including loose harvester heads are introduced at the Expoforest 2018 exhibition at the Ponsse stand together with Ponsse dealer Timber Forest.

Ponsse has already been offering the most modern and extensive selection of forest machines and harvester heads. In addition to forest machines, Ponsse’s strength has long been the customer-oriented and productivity-improving information and control systems for forest machines.  

Even more economical operation in 2018 thanks to many renewals

In addition to continuous improvement, Ponsse unveils many new developments at the beginning of 2018. These include new features that improve fuel economy, efficiency, usability, quality and serviceability.

Ponsse manufactures a large part of the components used in the machines itself, and for the information and control system, the whole production chain is controlled by Ponsse. Combined with good cooperation with customers and the most modern forest machine factory to be completed in 2018, this enables upgrading the already great model series to an ever better one.

THE NEW POWERFUL K121 CRANE FOR PONSSE ELEPHANT AND ELEPHANTKING

The new K121 crane for PONSSE Elephant and ElephantKing forwarders is introduced at the Expoforest 2018 for the public at the first time. The PONSSE K121 has 8m or 10m (26 ft or 33ft) reach and exceptional slewing torque and lifting moment.

LOWER FUEL CONSUMPTION AND INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY 

Ponsse has made changes to other models to improve the fuel economy of the machines. The hydraulic system of harvesters has been developed further, clearly decreasing fuel consumption, heat generation in the hydraulics and pressure losses. In the renewed hydraulic system, piping and connection blocks have been changed to ensure better flow, bringing a clear improvement to the operation and efficiency of hydraulics. The new hydraulic system has been extensively field-tested in different countries, and the results are promising: fuel consumption has been clearly lower in field tests. In addition, it has been possible to lower the pressures of the harvester head feed without affecting work speed.

LOWER FUEL CONSUMPTION

Another important innovation are the new control computers, or modules, for the forest machine information system developed and manufactured by Ponsse. The new modules can process up to 100 times more information and 100 times faster than the equipment of the previous generation. More efficient information processing enables more precise and efficient crane and loader handling, providing the operator with a comfortable feel and increasing productivity. The new modules also enable upgrading the machine to the latest information system version long into the future. 

MODERN TOOLS FOR CUSTOMERS – EFFICIENCY, PRODUCTIVITY AND INFORMATION

PONSSE Manager ENG

PONSSE Manager is a modern machine management and information transfer system that forest machine entrepreneurs can use to see the machines’ location, productivity figures and fuel consumption and, for instance, to plan and order the transfer of machines from one logging site to another. Ponsse Manager is a part of the Opti system. It can also be retrofitted into machines already in use under certain conditions. Ponsse Manager can be used from nearly anywhere with the help of a smartphone, tablet or computer.

THE VR TRAINING AND EXCAVATOR SIMULATOR

PONSSE Simulator with 360VR goggels

Ponsse offers a virtual reality (VR) training and Excavator simulator. VR headsets can be added to all PONSSE Full simulator models as optional equipment. VR headsets raise the simulator experience to a whole new level: they help the operator to perceive the environment and machine functions much better than in conventional simulators. The solution uses HTC Vive headsets and sensors to display images correctly. As a result, operators feel like they are actually in the forest and the driving experience feels more real – the environment can be explored by simply turning the head. By better perceiving distances and dimensions, it is also easier to train with the crane. The Full simulator can also be used without any headsets as before by simply switching it to the regular simulator mode through the user interface.

PONSSE SERVICE APPLICATION

With the new mobile application your able to select easily PONSSE Service products like forest machine accessories. In addition, the selectors inside the application help you to find the right product quicker. The contents of the app will be expanded this year.

The app can be downloaded to Android from Google play and iOS systems from App store. The app also works in offline mode. 

MAJOR INVESTMENTS IN QUALITY AND THE FUTURE        

In addition to R&D investments, Ponsse invests heavily in the development of its production and network. A record number of forest machines was produced at Ponsse's Vieremä factory last year. Currently, the factory is undergoing a significant expansion, as a result of which the factory area will expand from 2.7 hectares to four hectares. The aim of this expansion and machine investments is to improve quality and flexibility alongside increased productivity and occupational safety. However, Ponsse invests in more than just its production.

Last year, the new service centres were opened in Uruguay, France and UK. The new service centres ensures modern facilities for PONSSE Service.
