The drive system reconceived – CLAAS POWER SYSTEMS (CPS) is all about the perfect interplay of all individual drive system components.

CPS – the team

A concept is built on a foundation of shared ideas, and that is why we formed our CLAAS POWER SYSTEMS team. CPS is about concerted efforts to optimise our products’ drive systems, involving experts from various divisions of the company. “New approaches and projects rest on a foundation of shared expert knowledge within a company”, states Bernd Kleffmann, Corporate R&D. “We network our knowledge in order to generate new, practice-oriented solutions.” All our drive system experts contribute their knowledge, issues and expertise to a shared development process.

Meet the team

Henning Rabe, CPS Market Development:

“Kraftintelligenz is what guides us. At CLAAS, power generation, power conversion and power exploitation share a common limelight. CLAAS POWER SYSTEMS means that the people in our organisation are devoted to understanding the interplay of all of our drive technologies.”

Ansgar Koenen, CPS Tractors:

“To us, emissions standards are not simply an issue confined to a debate focused on fuel savings and engine efficiencies – at CLAAS, our thoughts are very much of a system-wide solution. We believe that every manufacturer on the market should view the drive train and drive unit as a single entity.”

Bernd Kleffmann, CPS Technologies:

“Emissions legislation is the latest challenge facing our company. Our aim is to convert all of our products, both in Europe and in the United States, within the set periods.”

Thomas Böck, CPS Systems:

“In addition to the engine system, it is essential that our machines’ hydraulics, drive technology and electronic systems are all purposefully developed to comply with customer requirements the world over and satisfy legally prescribed schedules. This warrants the holistic approach taken within the CPS team.”

Thomas Gerling, CPS Products:

“When we seek to optimise our agricultural machinery, our core competency is that we view our product as a single system. Our aim is to continuously reduce fuel consumption per threshed tonne of crop over the coming years.”

Kai Brandhofe, CPS Engine Development:

“There is no such thing as a perfect off-the-shelf system. We search for and locate the most suitable components for each product. When a customer chooses a product, the technology comes with it.”

Dr. Joachim Stiegemann, CPS Products:

“Nitrogen oxides will be cut by a further 50 percent in agricultural machinery when the next phase in the schedule of emissions standards rolls in. Soot particles will be reduced by 90 percent. To do so, we have both SCR and EGR technology in our arsenal.”

Roland Pollmeyer, CPS Purchasing:

“The market is awash with options, especially when it comes to engines. We are open to a wide range of solutions, although we put each and every one to the test. This is because, as far as we are concerned, only the very best will do.”
