THE EVOLUTION OF THE MAIZE HEADER!
The design of the new DIAMANT is revolutionary and highly innovative in its class. Increasingly lightweight yet stronger than ever, with fine-tuned mechanics and revamped design, it offers unprecedented standards in terms of operation and production performance.
LIGHTWEIGHT FRAME, HEAVYWEIGHT TECHNOLOGY
Taking inspiration from the shape of the levers which guide the struts as they fold – somewhat similar to the shape of a horseshoe, our designers christened the frame “HS series”. A system of levers which minimises the oil needed for inversion by the harvester, even with more than 8 rows.
But how can light weight equal strength?
The DIAMANT frame is proof that this is possible. It is designed to make the structure light yet solid, perfectly sized to accommodate large flip-up headers. It can, of course, be used in conjunction with combine harvesters of any kind, and the working angle can be adjusted to meet individual requirements.
Thanĸs to the adjustment system for worĸing position, the header is always at the correct angle to the ground.
AN EXCLUSIVE AND HIGHLY PRODUCTIV E DESIGN
The new extra-robust polymer hoods mark another breakthrough in the story of CAPELLO headers. The sinuous design encourages smooth crop flow in any working conditions, making harvesting quick and easy and exceeding all expectations.
All hoods can be removed in a few easy steps without the need for spanners or other tools – just the hands – making the header quick and convenient to clean.
The hood can be dismantled without special tools, maĸing maintenance of the header convenient and easy.
EXCELLENT VISIBILITY ON THE ROAD WITH THE MACHINE FOLDED
With DIAMANT, even on-road travel is a pleasure.
One of the essential features of CAPELLO headers – which has always been a common denominator in their evolution – is their superior compactness on the road: a distinguishing trait that makes for even easier handling and improved visibility from the cab.
DIAMANT’s beating heart is the row unit: a concentrate of technology that encapsulates decades of experience in the field all over the world.
The dynamics of harvesting have been broken down and analysed step by step and each element has been painstakingly designed down to the smallest detail.
The cast aluminium casing is lighter but stronger, while lubrication is optimised and constant: state-of-the-art transmission technology.
With the new chain tensioner, bearings are protected with lifetime lubrication.
The special torque damper, created by Capello, ensures protection of the drive shafts by limiting the torque, even in the most extreme conditions.
DESIGNED WITH INTEGRAL STALK CHOPPER
DIAMANT was created with an advanced horizontal stalk chopper. Capello, whose thirty years’ experience makes it a pioneer in the use of the horizontal stalk chopper, has further refined this technology, resulting in a cut that is closer to the ground and of unparalleled quality.
Furthermore, its new position – on the left as the harvester moves forward – eliminates the irritating problems of ventilation and radiator clogging caused by the vortex of dust generated by the rotors.
DIAMANT is also available without the stalk chopper, which can be retrofitted simply when required, without the need for specialist assistance.
As with all CAPELLO headers, DIAMANT offers the option of disabling the rotor when it is not required (in which case the rotor is locked to avoid clogging during harvesting).
The new fast two-blade stalĸ chopper is even more efficient, with minimal residue on the stalĸ. It can be disabled, in which case the rotor is locĸed.
The rotor is balanced, and protected by die-forged steel screws.
A HARVESTING SYSTEM THAT CATERS PERFECTLY FOR EVERY NEED: KNIFE ROLLER AND NEW-GENERATION HELICAL MONOLITHIC ROLLER..
The helical monolithic roller is a brand-new feature. It provides secure, continuous hold throughout the harvesting process: the plant is guided constantly and can never slip. It is interchangeable with the knife roller.
Positioning of the stalĸ chopper avoids dust penetrating the combine filters.
SYNCHRONISM AND PRECISION
Cutting precision is unbeatable thanks to the simultaneous synchronised movement of the deck plates, and the row is always positioned in the exact centre.
Plant snapping through to ear removal is guided perfectly perpendicular to the ground, minimising crop loss, improving cleaning and thus also boosting the harvester’s potential yield, especially when dealing with laid maize crops; it is the operator who draws on his experience to regulate the harvesting process by calculating the best deck plate gap for optimum results.
The gearbox is made from an aluminium alloy which undergoes a special treatment to maximise its toughness and durability.
Inside, the steel gears dictate with utter precision the timing and ratios which have always distinguished the strong personality of CAPELLO headers: clean, constant and fast harvesting. The drive system has also been completely revamped: shafts have all been made larger, to ensure that headers are equipped to give ever-improving performance.
Drive chains are totally isolated from the outside, constantly lubricated during operation and always precisely tensioned thanks to the rocker chain tensioner, whose contribution varies depending on requirements, supporting the chain correctly even when the movement is reversed. The gearbox transmitting motion to the intake auger, also in aluminium, incorporates a sealed oilimmersed floating torque limiter, which keeps the system constantly cleaned and lubricated.
The chain is always correctly tensioned thanĸs to the new active-recovery device.
Nothing is left to chance, not even the paintwork: all CAPELLO products are coated to the strictest ISO standards in electrostatic powder coating systems and pass the strictest testing.
Product quality is guaranteed by a company brand recognized worldwide for the reliability and performance of its products.
