This case study delves into the dynamic partnership between Coolamon, a well-established agricultural equipment manufacturer, and Quantech Design, highlighting Quantech's pivotal role in crafting the award-winning Spreader Chaser Bin—an innovative combination of two essential agricultural machines.
The challenge was to craft a hybrid agricultural machine that could efficiently perform two crucial tasks: spreading fertilizers and managing grain loads during harvest. Coolamon had created a tight deadline with a customer expecting delivery of their new machine before it had even been designed. The initial design phase required a thorough approach to fulfill these dual purposes while minimising any possible issues.
Quantech Design and Coolamon embarked on a comprehensive design and development process, reimagining the Spreader Chaser Bin as a combination of the chaser bin and spreader, from the ground up. The methodology involved the following stages:
Quantech Design's pioneering approach in merging the chaser bin and spreader functionalities resulted in a Spreader Chaser Bin with many beneficial attributes such as:
Quantech Design's groundbreaking initial design of the Spreader Chaser Bin, combining the functionalities of a chaser bin and spreader, revolutionized agricultural machinery. This innovative amalgamation delivered unparalleled versatility, safety, and efficiency for modern farmers. The final result was exceptional enough to win the prestigious Machine of the Year award at the Henty Field Days show in 2019, which was great recognition for the effort and innovation involved.
This case study underscores the significance of collaboration between Coolamon, an agricultural equipment manufacturer, and Quantech Design, a visionary design and engineering firm, in crafting a groundbreaking, multifunctional agricultural solution. It exemplifies the power of creative partnership and the potential for transformative innovations.
Quantech Design's instrumental role in the initial design of Coolamon's award-winning Spreader Chaser Bin, a fusion of the chaser bin and spreader, epitomizes the capacity for collaborative innovation to usher in paradigm shifts in the agricultural sector. This case study serves as an inspiring example for companies seeking to reimagine agricultural equipment by embracing strategic partnerships and visionary design integration from the outset.
