The Machinex Group is proud to introduce its II Ram high capacity baler series.
Designed to meet the multi-purpose needs of recyclers, the high speed, II RAM Baler Series maximizes density while reducing operating costs. The unique pre-fill device increases main ram cycle speed in both forward and reverse modes. This device not only allows the balers to meet and exceed the throughput of competitive equipment, but also results in a significant reduction in energy consumption. 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 to MRF’s managers.
“We built the II RAM Baler Series using the same distinguished features as our single ram baler series, knowing they offer unparalleled benefits to our customers. Our pre-fill valve sets us apart by offering a faster dry cycle time that exceeds up to 2.7 times the speed obtained by our competitors “, says Paul Fortier, Machinex Research & Development Director.
As a turnkey system provider, Machinex understands the important features of balers and positioned their R&D Department towards focusing on the efficiency and reliability of the machine, while also following the progression and future needs of the industry. For instance, Machinex is currently developing a machine designed for the waste to energy industry that will handle RDF baling. The first machines will incorporate plastic strapping and bale wrapping as part of the RDF solution. These balers will be installed by the end of summer 2016 in the UK.
Machinex has installed several two ram balers in Canada and United Kingdom, but the first one in the United States was integrated during the summer of 2015 at Alpine Recycling in Colorado as part of the system’s major upgrade. Brent Hildebrand, VP Recycling at Alpine Recycling (Colorado) comments on the baler: “The technology in this baler is true state-of-the-art. When we were looking at two ram balers, we had three different manufacturers in mind. After traveling to have a closer look at Machinex balers and see how they are manufactured, we were sold. Now that we have been running the baler for just under a year, we feel like our decision was the right one and the baler is exceeding our expectations.”
Machinex started manufacturing high capacity single ram balers in 2003 in order to offer a superior baler in terms of quality and efficiency to its customers. This offer added value to the turnkey systemsand allowed Machinex to improve its self-sufficiency as a supplier, all while having a machine that aligns with the high standards of the company. It was in 2012, due to a growing customer demand for high capacity two ram balers,that Machinex installed its first two ram baler in a customer’s facility. To this day, Machinex has sold 22 single ram balers, as well as 11 two ram balers, with several more to be installed in the coming year.
