Auto Tie Balers

Waste Equipment’s line of Auto-Tie Balers features our exclusive tying system.

 

auto-tie-horizontal-bale.jpg

Waste Equipment's Auto-Tie Horizontal Baler uses highly efficient gear twisters, which eliminates pigtails. This accounts for more than 10% reduction in wire consumption and related costs. The gear twisters and inserter needles are hydraulically driven and the wire is dispensed directly from our unique box holders. Hydraulic wire positioners precisely align the wires for pick-up by the inserter needles, making our model the most reliable on the market.

 

Our auto-tie balers are designed for high productivity and ease of use with advanced electronics, such as the Allen-Bradley MicroLogix 1500 PLC and Maestro® color touch-screen operator interface. From this interface, the operator can control a variety of baler functions such as auto and manual modes, bale settings, system pressure, bale length, and perform computerized diagnostics. The main panel box features IEC controls.

Closed End Horizontal Balers

Closed-End Balers typically process a wide variety of material. Waste Equipment's Closed-End balers are available in a variety of different models with the largest model processing up to 20 tons of OCC in a typical day’s shift.

closed-end-horizontal-baler-red.jpg

Closed-End Horizontal Balers are ideal for multi-material processing. The ram packs the material in the compaction chamber and the bale is ejected through the end. The gate operates hydraulically. Closed-End Horizontal Balers are mid-sized, closed-end balers that process a wide variety of material and can produce up to 20 tons of OCC in a typical day's shift. Several models are available with bale sizes from 30" x 42" x 72" to 48" x 42" x 72", charge box opening lengths from 30" to 50", motors with 20 and 30 horsepower, and 7-inch and 8-inch cylinder bores.

Side Eject Horizontal Balers

Side Eject Horizontal Balers are designed for applications requiring multi-material capability, and medium throughput capacity where space is limited.

atlas_et_list.jpg

The Side-Eject Horizontal Baler ejects the bale perpendicular to the baler utilizing the patented Bale Server Island. The server island fully ejects the bale and positions it to be easily picked up by a forklift or pallet jack.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Increased product value by eliminating contamination between bales as the operator changes materials being processed

  • Maximum bale weights with our Bale-Made Indicator, which signals the bale is finished. No time-consuming "flagpole" or manual measuring device to compromise bale quality

  • Our exclusive front bale tie-off system allows the operator to quickly direct tie wires around the bale from the front of the baler. This eliminates the need to go behind the baler and loosen hanging wires that drag as a bale is made

  • Eliminates spillage commonly found with conventional balers. No need to double handle materials being processed

  • Remove each bale from the bale chamber quickly and easily with the patented Side-eject feature and Bale Server island. Unlike conventional balers that require an operator and forklift to free the bale from the end of the bale chamber, Waste Equipment's Side-Eject design provides consistent and complete bale ejection every time

Seamless Push Button Operation

  • Pressure is relieved from the bale in three directions to achieve positive and complete bale ejection from the chamber

  • This advanced method of bale ejection begins by activating the "Home" button, which causes the platen to retract to a pre-set location, relieving the end force on the bale. The operator then opens the chamber door, which relieves side force and automatically unlocks the hinged upper section of the chamber to relieve vertical force on the bale

  • With pressure on the bale effectively relieved from all directions, a hydraulic-powered server island located on the floor of the bale chamber quickly and completely pushes the bale out of the chamber. The server island functions as a pallet, eliminating costly construction of permanent guide islands. After the bale is removed with a forklift or pallet jack, the server island is retracted, saving valuable space

  • Install the Side-Eject Horizontal Baler against a wall or in a tight space. Minimal floor space is needed for operation due to the unique front baler tie-off feature and side-eject design.
