Benefits Of Using A Baler For Your Business
There are many well documented reasons for using a recycling baler in your business operations. Recycling commodities such as cardboard, aluminum, paper, non-ferrous metals, and plastics helps to reduce waste hauling, increase space, minimize your carbon footprint, improve safety and appearance, and provide an additional revenue stream for your business.
The type of baler you will need depends on the type of product you need to bale, volume of materials you recycle, the space you have available, and your budget.
For distribution centers, local and regional municipalities, recycling centers, and scrap yards, a closed end horizontal baler is often the perfect solution.
Benefits Of Using A Closed End Horizontal Baler
Closed end horizontal balers are considered the standard, entry-level horizontal baler. They allow businesses to make heavier mill-sized bales of a variety of materials. They can be fed in a variety of ways that helps to speed up the baling process.
Here are some of the benefits of using a closed end horizontal baler:
- They provide the ability to bale a variety of materials.
- They create varying bale sizes and weights.
- These have automatic cycling and a fast cycle times.
- They reduce the need for a dedicated machine operator during the baling process.
- They come with multiple sized feed openings and loading configurations.
- They provide a larger throughput than most vertical balers.
- They contain state-of-the art OEM components such as PLC’s and hydraulics.
- They are more budget friendly than two ram or auto tie horizontal balers
With these innovative recycling machines, materials can be changed over very quickly, with minimal interruption. They are safe and easy to use and meet or exceed OSHA and ANSI safety standards.
Not only do they require less employee time, they provide a savings in baling wire usage. The dense mill-sized bales are easier to transport and have a greater resale value.
Why Harmony’s HM-60 Stands Above The Rest
Harmony’s HM-60 Closed Door Horizontal Baler is manufactured using the highest quality engineering available on the market today. It has several added features that provide owners with confidence that their baler will work safely, efficiently, and with minimal operator interference or down-time.
Added Benefits Of Harmony’s HM-60 Closed End Horizontal Baler:
7″ HD Color Touch Screen HMI – Easy to use and allows operator to preset and adjust machine pressure, size of bale, length of bale, weight of bale, commodity being baled, and the calibration of the conveyor upper and lower photo eyes.
54″ x 40″ Feed Opening – Largest in its class.
27 Point Chassis Shear Blade – Allows for continuous loading, even during compaction cycle without jamming. This is not standard on other brand closed end horizontal balers.
Interlocking Chassis Construction – Provides additional structural stability and longevity of the baler.
1/2″ Steel Sidewalls – This is much more robust that that of the competition.
Full Eject Feature – Clears the chamber after each bale is made, allowing you to switch to another material without shutting down operations.
Wire Placement Settings – The HMI remembers the wire placement for different commodities and leads employees through the wire placement and tying process.
Auto Shear Jam Correction – In the event of a shear jam, the baler performs an automatic clearing function to clear the jam, seldom requiring operator intervention.
Auto Hopper Bridge Detection and Clearing – If there are large boxes or materials lodged in the hopper, the baler will automatically attempt to correct the problem.
Low Oil Shutdown Alarm – This safety feature senses an abnormal oil level drop, alerts the operator, and automatically shuts down the baler quickly before significant oil is lost or pumps are damaged.
Automatic Bale Decompression – Opening the door of a horizontal baler while the bale is held under pressure can be deadly. The HM60 ensures this is never done by automatically retracting the ram to fully decompress the bale before allowing the latch/door to be opened.
With all of the features and benefits that come with the HM60, its clear to see why this baler is in a class by itself! Whether you are using it as a cardboard baler, aluminum can baler, or for other paper, plastic, or metal products, it is the gold standard for closed end horizontal balers.
