- Model 84 - Composite Rotary Platforms System



Centrus composite rotary platforms offer superior deck strength. They are around 90% lighter and five times stronger than traditional concrete alternatives. The Centrus 84 composite rotary platform is the largest platform designed and manufactured by Waikato Milking Systems following on from the success of the Centrus 54 and 60 bail platforms. Using technology developed specifically for this project and the most modern composite materials available, the unique Centrus 84 provides the size, strength and durability required by a global market where very large herds and 24/7 milking are common place.

The deck sections of the Centrus 84 are formed in a multi-layer laminated process that includes Kevlar a material used in the construction of aircraft. The result is a superior strength deck and a platform that has seven times the structural capacity of a concrete platform in the circumference and 29 times the structural capacity in the radial direction. Each Centrus 84 deck segment is a fully integrated and self-contained structure engineered to include the mounting system needed to attach to the steel “I” beam. When bonded together, with a unique high strength adhesive, the deck connects directly to the “I” beam avoiding the need for a steel platform substructure. The rotation of the Centrus 84 composite rotary platform is supported by Waikato Milking System’s new revolutionary self-aligning Pivot Roller.
