The shearing forces directly calculated from the shearing strains
In order to reduce this shearing strain
to a minimum, Konig developed the TwinSat which has two satellite multi-roller heads arranged one above the other.
Thanks to this processing technique the TwinSat achieves a dough free from shearing strain
produced by pressure in snow when its layers are laterally shifted in relation to one another.
