Research & development

research_etesia_main_1

Designing a new product is an act of creation and commitment and a gamble on the future for any company. For the Elmar Wolf group, R&D is a continuous obsession. That is why Etesia can be summed up in two words – small in size, but a leader in terms of innovation.etesia_research_side

 

The Research, Development and Test Centre are shared by Outils WOLF and Etesia, which devote 5% of their turnover and 10% of their workforce to it.

 

Etesia has 10 engineers and technicians totally dedicated to innovation and high performance in professional ride-on mowers. The Design department has 17 CAD workstations using CATIA V5.

 

Technical data are managed with PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) software. The finite-element design software allows virtual simulations to compare and validate parts or components, even complete systems, before making up prototypes. The centre’s prototyping shop is fully integrated and has all of the machine tools necessary to make the functional models defined by the design department.

 

All testing, both standardised and specific, to guarantee the safety and functionality of products is carried out in-house.

 

3000 hours of practical testing and 30,000 hours of other tests are carried out each year by the centre’s staff.

 

And its efforts are rewarded, with over 50 significant patents filed by the centre since 1958, illustrating the group’s commitment to setting new standards in the fields of comfort, safety and efficiency. Etesia was awarded the regional innovation prize in 2009.

Safety & standards

etesia_safety_top_3

 

Safety and quality at the heart of the Etesia concept

 

Your safety is not to be comprised!

 

Etesia ride-on mowers are designed to offer optimum safety to users – the machine stops completely if there is no driver (seat presence contactors), the blades stop in three seconds and are protected from impacts by two shearing bolts etc.

 

Strict compliance with standards

 

Safety: Of course, all of our machines meet the applicable safety standards, particularly in the area of blade stopping, as required by the Machinery etesia_safety_side_3directive of January 1997.

 

Noise: Thanks to the extra powerful suction effect of the cutting chassis, Etesia ride-on mowers do not need conventional turbines and thus generate less noise (88 dbA acoustic pressure level from the driver’s seat according to Directive 86/188/EEC) sparing your own ears and those of others!

 

Certifications

 

Quality and customer service are top priorities for Etesia. That is why Etesia has enjoyed continuous ISO certification since 1994 – ISO 9002 in December 1994, ISO 9001 version 2000 in November 2002 and lastly ISO 9001 version 2008 in November 2009.

 

etesia_reliability_1

A simple and reliable engineering design for proven ruggedness and efficiency

 

etesia_reliability_1

Transmission solutions with maximum efficiency

 

The mower is driven by hydraulic motors in each wheel (Hydro 124D) or by a transaxle and chains (Hydro 100). That choice made by ETESIA avoids the loss of power and reduces stresses due to machine mass.

The electromagnetic clutch with brake on our ride-on models prevents impacts when the blades start and stop.

 

Electromagnetic clutch

Blade transmission using a double-sided notched belt (Hydro 100) or a cardan and two angle transmissions (Hydro 124 D) for accurate blade indexing. Transmission using a standard single belt (Bahia) makes maintenance easier.

The transmission is protected by shear bolts on the blades.

 

Hydraulic motor transmission

etesia_reliability_2

 

Tested and proven strength and quality

 

From the time that they are designed, all our machines undergo extreme durability and strength tests. A whole series of test benches run on a 24/7 basis and test the main functions of the machine – engines, driving of cutters, hydraulics etc.

 

Record ease of accessibility of main mechanical components

 

Easy access to the cutting system, which can be removed in less than 5 min from the Hydro 100 and in a matter of seconds from the Hydro 124 D, so that the blades can be changed or sharpened very easily in the field .
Access to all the functional parts of the machine – engine, cutting deck etc. – in record time and with no tools.
Folding cutting deck (patented)

 

Proven Ruggedness

 

The cutting deck is a single 1-cm thick aluminium casting (Hydro 100) or a Mastershock deck (Hydro 124 D). The use of this component in the field of mowing is an exclusive feature from ETESIA.

Etesia and sustainable development

 

Environmental protection and a commitment to sustainable development have always been among our key concerns, even before they became the latest buzzwords. That is why at Etesia, we have developed our own philosophy called Bio Concept.

 

It is reflected in the fact that environmental protection is addressed in all areas of the company and at every stage in the life of our equipment.

 

logo_bio_concept

For example, all our waste undergoes selective sorting, 90% of it internally, with the use of separate skips for steel, aluminium, cardboard, wood, accumulators and batteries.

 

The choice of manufacturing materials and processes also takes account of their environmental impact.

 

Bio Concept also covers different projects to develop new cleaner engines. That is how Etesia has been able to release three exclusive products in two years: the first ride-on mower in the world to run entirely on PVO (pure vegetable oil, a bio-fuel), the first ride-on mower in Europe running on LPG (25% less CO, 21% less CO2) and the first ride-on mower in the world to run entirely on electricity (zero pollutant, zero noise).

 

Etesia’s vision of the future of its market is one where business and environmental protection are ultimately reconciled.

 

Etesia’s commitment is taking concrete form with its new green engines and also through the versatility of the range, making it possible to apply several mowing techniques and thus enabling differential management.
