BalerTypes

Overview

Vertical Balers
Designed for small volumes and limited budgets, vertical balers are manually fed and are a good solution for two bales per day or less. Common materials include corrugated, plastic wrap and textiles. Multiple options are available, depending on types of materials to be processed. 

Horizontal Balers
Horizontal balers are designed for continuous use. They can be set up for manual or automatic feeding. They offer significant labor savings over a vertical type baler. A wider range of materials can be processed, including large corrugated, plastic containers, cans and textiles.

Single Ram Closed Door Balers
Single ram closed door balers are designed to bale a wide variety of materials but are used most often to bale large corrugated boxes and paper trim. Ideal for distribution centers, document destruction facilities and printers/converters. You can optimize efficiency with an automated feeding by conveyor, cart dumper or trim system. Requires hand tying of bales.

Multi-Material Closed Door Balers
Process a wide variety of materials. Ideal for medium volume recycling centers. Full ram travel into the bale chamber enables baling of corrugated, plastics, paper, cans, textiles and non-ferrous scrap.

Single Ram Auto Tie Balers
Single ram auto tie balers are best suited for baling high volumes of corrugated and paper. A wide variety of models are available for recycling centers, printing plants, box manufacturing, document destruction and distribution centers.

Two Ram Auto Tie Balers
Automatic tie balers ideal for facilities that process a wide range of material. Two ram balers produce high-density bales of corrugated, paper, plastics, cans, non-ferrous scrap and solid waste. Ideal for material recovery facilities, recycling, scrapyards and landfills.

Key Buying Steps

1
ID Material and Volume
What are the types of material you plan to bale? What is the volume in terms of tonnage? Material and volume drive the size and type of equipment to consider.
What is the volume that you expect the baler to handle? Per year, per month, per day and per hour. Throughput is one of the most important factors in the decision process.
2
Determine Baler Specs
Consider labor costs, wire costs per bale, maintenance, spare parts availability, lease vs. buy and budget.
3
Compare Options
After completing your homework, determining your needs, amounts to be baled, bale density desired, future volume predictions and budget, you should be ready to compare and decide.
