Farm Implements by GenZ

Equipment Development and Engineering

GenZ Technology is a company that builds farm implements and produces next-generation agriculture equipment for spraying strawberry fields and vineyards. Their innovative sprayer systems takes a decade’s old process and make it safer, more efficient and help save farmers money by reducing waste.

When GenZ approached SGW Designworks for help with equipment design and engineering, they had built a handful of working prototypes. But the system needed to be redesigned to reduce production cost and to improve specific functionality – including addressing specific vulnerabilities in the product design, defining a better folding mechanisms, and optimizing airflow through the spray system.

Design for Manufacture, Product Improvement

As part of the equipment engineering effort, SGW Designworks used Finite Element Analysis for GenZ Technology to help identify possible problem areas. Specific substructures were redesigned for improved strength and resistance to breakage in the field. The entire design was also revised to improve manufacture-ability and reduce production cost. Analysis of pneumatic and hydraulic systems on-board the system also identified areas to improve efficiency and reliability.

Product Prototypes Leading to Product Launch

GenZ’s first strawberry sprayers are seeing use in the field by customers and the company continues to develop new agriculture equipment addressing pesticide drift issues and operator safety concerns.
