Fully Automatic Press for Paper & Co.

The German manufacturer HSM GmbH + Co. KG has added the fully automatic channel baling press HSM VK 6215 to its product portfolio.

According to the provider, this press model is particularly suitable for professional waste management or larger industrial applications – with high throughput capacity. With a pressing force of 620 kN (kilonewton), the HSM VK 6215 is suitable for a wide range of materials such as cardboard, paper and film, as well as PET bottles. Thanks to the large filling opening of 1500 x 970 millimeters, bulky material is also no problem for the channel baling press, HSM emphasized.

The bottom of the compaction chamber, as well as the bottom and side panels of the baling chamber, are made of high wear-resistant steel. Depending on the material, the highly compressed bales reach a weight of up to 550 kilograms, have a bale mass of 1100 x 750 x max. 1200 millimeters and are held together by a fully automatic, five-fold wire strapping. “The optimal bale sizes and bale weights guarantee efficient use of the truck,” the South German manufacturer assures. “The optimally coordinated software for the respective material types guarantees a high bale quality – even with frequent material changes”. The HSM VK 6215 with a frequency-controlled drive is available as an option. This drive “makes a significant contribution to environmental protection and efficiency, making it possible to save up to 40 percent of energy costs compared to conventional drive technology – with the same performance”, the company underlined.
