Revo­lu­tio­na­ry stan­dards 
in del­im­bing

A world’s first – starting 2019

adva­li­gno is pre­sen­ting a sys­tem for the mecha­ni­cal del­im­bing of live trees to pro­du­ce high-gra­de wood, which real­ly must be cal­led revo­lu­tio­na­ry. Final tests are run­ning, in 2019 we will start sales…
Pre­vious­ly, for del­im­bing in heights above five meters, only tools and methods that requi­re com­plex and stre­nuous manu­al work with a lot of per­son­nel were used. Now the adva­li­gno Patas, named after one of the fas­test mon­keys, is offe­ring a solu­ti­on which is desi­gned to rede­fi­ne tim­ber stand manage­ment world­wi­de.

Forestry experts, who alrea­dy expe­ri­en­ced the Patas in action came to the end »The selec­tion of the future crop trees must be com­ple­te­ly ret­hought as soon as this machi­ne is avail­ab­le!« With cost reduc­tions of more than 70%, con­si­der­a­b­ly more trees can be delim­bed than, as usu­al, only every seventh to tenth. Forest owners will be able to dra­ma­ti­cal­ly increa­se the value and yield of their forestry by gro­wing branch-free tim­ber. Ser­vice pro­vi­ders are given a tool to car­ry out their work much more effi­ci­ent­ly and more gent­ly for the work­force as well as for natu­re. So, in the future it will be cal­led more and more often: »High-gra­de wood ins­tead of fire­wood!«

Especially developped for the careful delimbing of larch, pine and eucalyptus plantations

Simp­le fac­ts and figu­res are giving pro­of of the company’s self-con­fi­den­ti­al­ly clai­med quan­tum leap in the field of del­im­bing hig­her trees: For the time being, fores­ters and ser­vice pro­vi­ders were glad to finish four trees or may­be six per hour by pie­ce­work. Using the Patas will enab­le them to do 40 up to 50 trees an hour. While usual­ly no one would take the effort to con­ti­nue del­im­bing much hig­her than eight meters, the adva­li­gno machi­ne allows for a ran­ge bet­ween 12 and 15 meters with the easiest pos­si­ble ope­ra­ti­on. When you see the machi­ne at work, you imme­dia­te­ly under­stand how this immense advan­ta­ge in effi­ci­en­cy is achie­ved: the Patas will go up the tree for a com­ple­te del­im­bing pro­cess in near­ly incredi­ble eight to ten seconds – and back down again!

The tech­no­lo­gy, which is pro­tec­ted by inter­na­tio­nal patents, is based on a cut­ting head which reaches the necessa­ry speed via hydrau­li­cal­ly dri­ven rub­ber belts that gua­ran­tee mini­mum bark pres­su­re and maxi­mum grip. Wea­ther-inde­pen­dent and in the who­le year, pre­cise­ly desi­gned bla­des sepa­ra­te all bran­ches clean­ly and safe­ly from the tree. The ent­i­re sys­tem con­sists of two modu­les: a dri­ve unit for the con­nec­tion to stan­dar­di­zed small trac­tors, as well as the alrea­dy men­tio­ned cut­ting unit, which then works on the tree.

What others say about us

Papers and magazines

The inno­va­ti­ve pro­duct was crea­ted on the basis of a fami­ly business’s own initia­ti­ve

As he had been active in the field del­im­bing for deca­des, Ernst Jor­dan many years ago loo­ked for ways to get the pro­cess done mecha­ni­cal­ly, wit­hout doing any harm to the tree and above all to the sen­si­ti­ve cam­bi­um. Many ways were tried and rejec­ted, until final­ly the machi­ne emer­ged, which could ensu­re the desi­red per­for­mance even in per­ma­nent tests. With the pro­to­ty­pes deve­lo­ped by the Jor­dan fami­ly, some 200,000 trees have alrea­dy been delim­bed. In the mean­ti­me, the ent­i­re fami­ly has alrea­dy been enga­ged in the second genera­ti­on and has now foun­ded adva­li­gno GmbH with com­ple­men­ta­ry part­ners. In the long term, fur­ther deve­lop­ments, adap­ted to the most diver­se needs of tree spe­ci­es and geo­gra­phic regi­ons, shall ensu­re the suc­cess of the adva­li­gno pro­duc­ts.

3. Data collection on our website


Some of our web pages use coo­kies. Coo­kies do not harm your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain any viru­ses. Coo­kies help make our web­site more user-fri­end­ly, effi­ci­ent, and secu­re. Coo­kies are small text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter and saved by your brow­ser.

Most of the coo­kies we use are so-cal­led „ses­si­on coo­kies.” They are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after your visit. Other coo­kies remain in your device’s memo­ry until you dele­te them. The­se coo­kies make it pos­si­ble to reco­gni­ze your brow­ser when you next visit the site.

You can con­fi­gu­re your brow­ser to inform you about the use of coo­kies so that you can deci­de on a case-by-case basis whe­ther to accept or reject a coo­kie. Alter­na­tively, your brow­ser can be con­fi­gu­red to auto­ma­ti­cal­ly accept coo­kies under cer­tain con­di­ti­ons or to always reject them, or to auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­te coo­kies when clo­sing your brow­ser. Dis­ab­ling coo­kies may limit the func­tio­n­a­li­ty of this web­site.

Coo­kies which are necessa­ry to allow elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons or to pro­vi­de cer­tain func­tions you wish to use (such as the shop­ping cart) are stored pur­suant to Art. 6 para­graph 1, let­ter f of DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the sto­rage of coo­kies to ensu­re an opti­mi­zed ser­vice pro­vi­ded free of tech­ni­cal errors. If other coo­kies (such as tho­se used to ana­ly­ze your sur­fing beha­vi­or) are also stored, they will be trea­ted sepa­r­ate­ly in this pri­va­cy poli­cy.

Server log files

The web­site pro­vi­der auto­ma­ti­cal­ly collec­ts and stores infor­ma­ti­on that your brow­ser auto­ma­ti­cal­ly trans­mits to us in „ser­ver log files”. The­se are:

  • Brow­ser type and brow­ser ver­si­on
  • Ope­ra­ting sys­tem used
  • Refer­rer URL
  • Host name of the acces­sing com­pu­ter
  • Time of the ser­ver request
  • IP address

The­se data will not be com­bi­ned with data from other sources.

The basis for data pro­ces­sing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows the pro­ces­sing of data to ful­fill a con­tract or for mea­su­res preli­mi­na­ry to a con­tract.

Only in excep­tio­nal cases is the full IP address sent to a Goog­le ser­ver in the US and shor­ten­ed the­re. Goog­le will use this infor­ma­ti­on on behalf of the ope­ra­tor of this web­site to eva­lua­te your use of the web­site, to com­pi­le reports on web­site activi­ty, and to pro­vi­de other ser­vices regar­ding web­site activi­ty and Inter­net usa­ge for the web­site ope­ra­tor. The IP address trans­mit­ted by your brow­ser as part of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics will not be mer­ged with any other data held by Goog­le.

Brow­ser plugin

You can pre­vent the­se coo­kies being stored by selec­ting the appro­pria­te set­tings in your brow­ser. Howe­ver, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full func­tio­n­a­li­ty of this web­site. You can also pre­vent the data gene­ra­ted by coo­kies about your use of the web­site (incl. your IP address) from being pas­sed to Goog­le, and the pro­ces­sing of the­se data by Goog­le, by down­loa­ding and instal­ling the brow­ser plugin avail­ab­le at the fol­lo­wing link:
