International Baler Corp. (IBC) has begun production of their new ATX Auto-Tie baler series, a high-volume, "European style" baler for MRF and MSW applications. IBC is the first manufacturer to offer this class of machine in the USA. Built entirely in their plant in Jacksonville, Florida, IBC offers US customers a domestic alternative to the high cost and extended lead time of overseas shipping, parts, and service.
Designed for high-production applications, the ATX auto-tie baler is ideal for single and dual stream recycling facilities, large fiber processors, and municipalities where speed is a necessity. The ATX is capable of processing over 60,000 cubic feet of material per hour, with throughputs up to 50 tons per hour. The ATX handles this massive load thanks to its triple-motor 225 horsepower flooded suction power unit and a robust roller platen that rides easily inside the chamber on solid steel ball-bearing rollers. A powerful 10" (5,000 PSI) main bore cylinder allows the ATX to achieve optimal bale density, while a jam-clear stamper minimizes down time.
IBC has also designed the ATX with longevity in mind. A solid-plate, keyed construction frame provides robust support for years of use under the high pressure achieved by heavy duty hydraulics. The fully-lined chamber features replaceable AR-450 liners to eliminate the traditional wear of a non-lined chamber, even as the roller platen reduces friction throughout the stroke. Bolt-in liners reduce the down time associated with conventional plug-welded liners during replacement.
IBC says they plan to bring the ATX Auto-Tie baler to market at a competitive price point and lead time.
In recent years, we have seen a trend of replacing separation screens with ballistic separators. We love ballistic separators as much as the next guy, but believe they have their place. How to know where that place is?
