The company has also asked Bollegraaf to supply a new sorting system for separating paper and cardboard.
The HBC-110 is used to convert large quantities of recovered paper or other materials into uniform bales. A favourable bale size guarantees the most efficient use of container transport and a minimum of handling, while the HBC-110 boasts an excellent processing capacity using only modest power, according to Bollegraaf. Variable costs are scarcely higher than for a machine with a far smaller capacity, it adds.
The baler is equipped with a large quadrant-shaped, pre-press flap and patented RotoClean needle heads. The pre-press flap makes shearing of material unnecessary, thus eliminating the need to replace expensive cutter strips or blades. The needle heads are of a self-cleaning design and are therefore maintenance-friendly.
Lubo Screening & Recycling Systems, part of the Bollegraaf Recycling Machinery holding company for the past three years, has delivered one of its star screens for cardboard to accompany the HBC-110. This comes with a patented system for ensuring that even newspapers are removed from the cardboard stream, while only small quantities of cardboard are taken out by the screen.
