Machinex posts record year for baler sales
During the last twelve months, Machinex had a record year for baler sales, with eight single-ram and twelve two-ram high capacity balers commissioned throughout Canada and the United States. Since the company started to design and manufacture balers, 43 single-ram and 35 two-ram balers were sold, adding up to a total of 78 balers.
Machinex started manufacturing high capacity single ram balers in 2003, which added value to turnkey systems and allowed the company to improve its self-sufficiency as a supplier, all while having a machine that aligns with the company's standards. In 2012, due to growing customer demand for high capacity II ram balers, Machinex installed its first II ram baler in a customer's facility.
Designed to meet the multi-purpose needs of recyclers, the Machinex baler series maximizes density while reducing operating costs. The pre-fill device increases main ram cycle speed in both forward and reverse modes. The device also features a significant reduction in energy consumption and reduces wear on motors and pumps.
Machinex is also recognized for its high capacity single ram baler with patented Preflap & Shear technology, a double compaction that produces high density, stable and homogeneous bales. 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 give operational benefits and costs reduction to MRF.
"One of our clients in St Louis considered four other major II ram baler manufacturers as a part of their buying process. They selected the Machinex baler because we had the lowest cost of ownership over a 10-year period when considering baling capacity and annual maintenance," said Rusty Angel, Eastern Region Sales Manager in the United States.
