Waikato Centrus - Rotary Systems
Centrus composite rotary platforms offer superior deck strength. They are about 80% lighter and 5x stronger than traditional concrete alternatives. The deck sections are formed in a multi layer laminated process that includes Kevlar, a material offering five times the strength of concrete. The result is a superior strength deck and a platform that is 80% lighter than traditional concrete alternatives - meaning overall reduced wear and tear and lower maintenance costs. The drive gear will last longer and the surface finish will remain steadfast for years to come.
Made in a controlled environment Centrus composite rotary platforms integrate perfectly with a Waikato Milking System and incorporate a range of unique features. Integration is critical to the success of a rotary project; Centrus does this better than any other platform design.
Every bracket and every detail has been carefully considered ensuring optimum performance. The steelwork is hot dip galvanised, considerably adding to the integrity of the product and greatly extending its life.
Operator safety is well taken care of and for convenience a second operator console can be installed at cups off. Emergency stops can be activated from anywhere around the platform. Cow comfort is enhanced with the addition of specially formulated and replaceable rubber mats inserted into every bail. The mats are soft to stand on so they protect the cows’ hooves during milking and promote a quieter milking environment.
A professional and modern approach to platform engineering has produced a world class product and the biggest breakthrough in design for over two decades.
