ACM launches horizontal mill size balers
26 November 2004, News release from ACM plc
ACM has further strengthened its comprehensive range of waste management equipment with the introduction of three new horizontal mill size balers.
The three new balers, the HC2-50-25, HC-70 and ML-65 are fully automatic baling presses that have been specially designed to produce high-density bales from a variety of materials. They operate at between 2 to 40 m.t/hour.
Barry Bolton, Chairman, said: "Each baler incorporates the latest technology to guarantee the maximum efficiency and return on investment."
"The benefit of the horizontal set-up is that the machine can be fed continuously as it does not have to be fed manually, unlike vertical mill size balers. This is particularly useful for high volume waste producers."
As well as supplying the equipment ACM will also guide customers through the design stage, to final installation and commissioning. Computer Aided Design (CAD) software is used to tailor the system to customer requirements, including conveyor and pneumatic feed systems.
The new horizontal balers also incorporate the latest state of the art control technology, with a programmable automaton facility that guarantees maximum performance with the minimum consumption of power.
Each has a hermetically sealed automatic tying system to ensure bale integrity and total reliability in the most adverse working conditions. They also incorporate a fully adjustable shear assembly and a magazines opener for newspapers and other materials without crushing.
Other options available include, full modem diagnostics, oil cooler, 'Densitronic' bale control, rufflers and bottle piercing tool.
Barry said: "The build quality of the machines is exceptional. The hydraulic unit has been developed to ISO9001 standards by one of the leading manufactures in the world and utilises the highest quality components available."
"The presses themselves are solid and offer great robustness. They have hydraulic powered gear train mechanisms for durability and low service reasons, are simple to use and allow work to be carried out in complete safety."
Each model has its own strengths. The HC2-50-25 comes with a full shear facility. The HC-70 is a high density model with fully pressurised bale tunnel and shear assembly. The ML-65 is designed for use on UBC's and metal swarfs, ideal for inclusion.
