Double-Acting Baler

The idea is impressively simple: 
In a conventional press, the compressions have to return to their initial position after each working cycle in order to pick up material. In the Double- Acting Baler, on the other hand, compression takes place parallel to the retraction of the cylinders in the opposing compression chamber. Since a press stroke is performed at any given time, there is no idling. This virtually doubles the production capacity.

The Double-Acting Baler includes a double-acting first compression and two opposing compression chambers. Due to its constructional and procedural improvements, it achieves maximum efficiency. Light to medium-weight ferrous and non-ferrous metals can be processed into bales of variable density and dimensions. Areas of application are scrap facilities, industrial plants, and the automotive industry.

Constructive Offset

The bottom of the compression chamber is vertically offset in relation to the bottom of the charging chamber. This provides a guide section in the compression chamber which prevents wedging of the bale during ejection.

The guide section enables the first compression to start pre-compression in one compression chamber while carrying out the process of discharging a compressed bale, the compression of which has been completed, from the opposite compression chamber.

a unique process

Thanks to the innovatively designed low-density compression and the vertical offset that guides the bales during ejection, the Double-Acting Baler is capable of performing two to a maximum of three work strokes simultaneously. After the low-, medium- and high-density compression the double-acting first compression starts – parallel to the bale ejection – the pre-compression in the opposite compression chamber.

This process allows the Double-Acting Baler to produce two bales per working cycle, while a conventional baler produces only a single scrap bale per working cycle.
