Low-energy baler increases bale weight

Austrian baling machinery specialist Austropressen has launched a new series of automatic channel presses for a range of applications, including can compaction.
The APK press series D and E are designed to offer improved energy efficiency and produce higher bale weights, of up to one tonne, depending on the material being compressed.

The balers use reduced pressing power to lower energy consumption, with the APK E unit producing an output of around 450 cb m per hour, with 70 to pressure force and using two 45kW power inputs.

The units also produce bales shaped for optimum stackability.
