CLAAS of America

Get a behind the scenes look at the CLAAS North American Headquarters where hundreds of LEXICON combines are assembled each year. You can tour this facility on Friday afternoon.

The CLAAS assembly facility focuses on safety, efficiency, quality and ergonomics using work platforms designed specific to the machine. With the exponential growth of the machine, the tools used to build on the machine have also had to grow. Attendees of the tour will see specialized seat lifts in cabs, a track stretcher and feederhouse lift and learn how CLAAS uses consolidated commissioning to address the complexity of the bill of materials for unique machines with a minimal footprint. The test booth runs each machine to ensure top of the line quality with notes and modifications communicated within teams for accountability and improvements.
