Aus­tralian agri­cul­tural ma­chin­ery man­u­fac­turer Tr­u­fab Global (Grain King) has come sec­ond in this year’s Swedish Steel Prize. Held at a cer­e­mony in Stock­holm in May, Tr­u­fab and its Nyrex chaser bin fell just short to the Ital­ian Strato­sphere 3.0 rear-tip­ping semi-trailer by Man­tella.

Tr­u­fab (Grain King) CEO Colin Jor­gensen, who at­tended the event, says he was hon­oured by the recognition of the Nyrex chaser bin.

“The Swedish Steel Awards are in­cred­i­bly pres­ti­gious and be­ing recog­nised by them is a real hon­our,” he says.

The ver­dict from the Swedish Steel Prize judges was that the Nyrex bin utilised high-strength steel that chal­lenged tra­di­tional de­sign by us­ing mod­ern ma­te­ri­als to cre­ate the high­est lev­els of per­for­mance. It was also recog­nised for the re­duc­tion in weight through the use of Strenx per­for­mance steel, which Tr­u­fab (Grain King) says makes the Nyrex bin stronger, lighter, safer and longer last­ing.

The Nyrex chaser bins use a Strenx prod­uct that is 25 per cent lighter than steel plate and pro­vides a longer life than con­ven­tional bins. The durable Strenx steel also al­lows the bins to be made in a range of sizes and are be­ing tar­geted at farm­ers look­ing for a chaser bin that will al­low them to har­vest grain more ef­fi­ciently.

The new Nyrex chaser bins fea­ture a mod­u­lar de­sign us­ing al­most no weld­ing. In­stead, the assem­bly process uses laser tech­nol­ogy in a bolted con­struc­tion that avoids any dis­tor­tion and rip­pling of the steel plate from weld­ing, cre­at­ing sav­ings in time and en­ergy.

The West Aus­tralian fam­ily-run busi­ness was es­tab­lished in 1962, work­ing with struc­tural steel. Over the years the com­pany has tran­si­tioned into grain-han­dling equip­ment.

“Our use of cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy, high-qual­ity ma­te­ri­als and skilled labour means we are pro­vid­ing cus­tomers with in­no­va­tive and in­tel­li­gent so­lu­tions to in­crease their pro­duc­tiv­ity and ef­fi­ciency,” Jor­gensen says.
