aggregation, hybrid technology, machine and tractor fleet, wear resistance, performance indicators
Mechanisms of agricultural engineering have their characteristics due to the following reasons: high requirements for wear resistance and fatigue strength of the working surfaces of parts that experience heavy loads, relatively large size and weight of manufactured machines, predominantly small-scale and serial nature of production, etc. Under the conditions of ageing and wear of machine and tractor fleet, the repeated rise in the cost of machinery, spare parts, and lack of funds, the technical equipment of agricultural production must be solved by developing new and improving existing production and repair processes. When manufacturing agricultural machinery and mechanisms, it is necessary to use modern technology, equipment, and materials. A vital task is the development and application of hybrid technologies and hybrid equipment for the production of machines and mechanisms, as well as spare parts for the machine and tractor fleet. The paper presents options for applying the principle of aggregation. This will allow for the creation of machine tool systems where different types of machining can be combined on a single platform, which reduces the time for intermediate and auxiliary operations, the range of available equipment, maintenance and repair costs, etc., being especially important for small enterprises, repair shops, small businesses that produce agricultural machinery and mechanisms.
