First plastic strapper on two-ram baler

International Baler’s new plastic strapper unit is the first successfully integrated plastic strapper on a two-ram baler, according to the company. This technology is ideal for non-ferrous, cardboard and other material with lower memory. Benefits include increased safety, as there is no danger fro

m snapping, cut wires or sharp metal edges, and there are no rust issues.   For many applications, plastic straps are non-contaminating, which eliminates the need to remove steel wires from certain baled materials. These strappers can handle a variety of banding materials of different sizes, gauges and thickness, and units are designed with removable modules for ease of maintenance and quick repair, significantly reducing downtime due to strapper failure.

Why invest money in an intelligent MRF (4.0)?

Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.

When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
