Machinex Expands its Baler Range

The Machinex Group has introduced its two ram high capacity baler series to the American market.

Designed to meet the multi-purpose needs of recyclers, the new baler series maximizes density while reducing operating costs, the provider is convinced. “The unique pre-fill device increases main ram cycle speed in both forward and reverse modes. This device not only allows the balers to meet and exceed the throughput of competitive equipment, but also results in a significant reduction in energy consumption.”

According to Machinex, other exclusive design features include bolt-on liners for ease of maintenance, a single-plate frame construction to provide maximum structural stability, and many other options that would give operational benefits to managers of materials recovery facilities (MRF). The manufacturer has installed several two ram balers in Canada and the United Kingdom, but the first one in the United States.

Machinex is currently developing a machine designed for the waste to energy industry that will handle refuse derived fuel (RDF) baling. As reported, the first machines will incorporate plastic strapping and bale wrapping as part of the RDF solution. These balers will be installed by the end of summer 2016 in the United Kingdom.
