August 27th, 2020 – During the last twelve months, Machinex had a record year on balers sales including 8 single ram and 12 II ram high capacity balers throughout Canada and the United States. Since the company started to design and manufacture balers, 43 single ram and 35 II ram balers were sold, adding up to a total of 78 balers.

In North America, both II ram and single ram balers were installed, with some ending up in long-time customers’ facilities such as Rumpke Recycling in Louisville and Medina, Republic Services in Greensboro for the US part. In Canada, balers were installed at GFL facilities in Richmond and Winnipeg but not only.

Machinex started manufacturing high capacity single ram balers in 2003 to offer a superior baler in terms of quality and efficiency. This offer added value to turnkey systems and allowed the company to improve its self-sufficiency as a supplier, all while having a machine that aligns with the company’s high standards. In 2012, due to growing customer demand for high capacity II ram balers, Machinex installed its first II ram baler in a customer’s facility.  The long-time expertise of Machinex as a turnkey solution provider gives unparalleled benefits to customers.

Machinex unique High Capacity Balers features

Designed to meet the multi-purpose needs of recyclers, the Machinex 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 and reduces wear on motors and pumps. 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 the competition.

Machinex is also recognized for its high capacity single ram baler with patented Preflap & Shear technology, a double compaction that produces high density, stable and homogeneous bales

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 and costs reduction to MRF.

One of our clients in St Louis considered four other major II ram baler manufacturers as a part of their buying process.  They selected the Machinex baler because we had the lowest “cost of ownership” over a 10-year period when considering baling capacity and annual maintenance” said Rusty Angel, Eastern Region Sales Manager in the United States.
