Lely Astronaut A3 Next, a new generation of milking robot
Sunday, April 12, 2009Description :
Three and a half years after the launch of the Lely Astronaut A3, Lely is now launching a brand new automated milking system: the Lely Astronaut A3 Next. With this new robot, Lely manages to exceed the limits reached by the Lely Astronaut A3.

Visually, the new Lely Astronaut A3 Next milking robot is distinguished by its brand new design. But, all is not in appearance. Cleaning and maintenance are still facilitated and the use of durable materials will ensure an exceptional lifetime of the product and an unrivaled resale value on the market.

The Lely Astronaut A3 Next also benefits from developments in the T4C robot management system (Time For Cows) incorporating dynamic milking and feeding concepts. To do this, Lely takes into account the individual response of each cow (its milk production) according to the doses of concentrate distributed and the intervals between each milking. In addition to a direct impact on the health of the herd, the costs of the concentrates decrease, thus optimizing the use of the robot.

On this brand new model, Lely has placed the milk quality control sensors in the Astronaut's arm as close to the udder as possible to obtain even more quickly and accurately information on the presence and flow of milk Of the trafficking in progress. The system of quality control of milk and cell counts neighborhood by district in real time has also evolved. On the other hand, the milk separation system M4Use can now be installed at the place chosen by the breeder.

The thousands of breeders already equipped with Lely Astronaut A3 milking robot will be pleased to know that the Lely Astronaut A3 Next robot at the cutting edge of technology is compatible with their current equipment.

Aart van't Land, Vice President Dairy Equipments of Lely Industries, says: "As robotic milking inventors, Lely is constantly exploring new avenues to continue bringing breeders from around the world the best of technology. Each of our developments must benefit the breeder both financially and socially. The Lely Astronaut A3 Next consumes far less energy and water than its competitors. Moreover, Lely is alone in the market, offering breeders maintenance contracts that allow them to choose a real all-inclusive contract and without "unpleasant surprises". Its cost is indeed based on the number of bills made, and the breeder pays the fair price. The use of high quality materials and the choice of limiting the number of moving parts, guarantee a very long life and a resale value much more important to the Lely Astronaut A3 Next. Focusing on energy savings, today we are launching the world's first environmentally friendly robot. A Lely Astronaut milking robot is an important investment, and it is not only necessary to take into account the initial cost but to integrate the costs associated with its use years after years! And if you take these criteria into consideration, the choice is self-imposed! "

Seventeen years ago, Lely, the inventor of robotic milking, launched the first Astronaut. Today, with the release of the latest Lely Astronaut A3 Next, Lely proves again its ability to take into account the needs of breeders to further enrich the concept of milking automated. The Lely Astronaut Next will be available mid-2009.
