Product Description

What is a baler machine used for?

A baler machine it used to compact waste recyclable material such as cardboard, plastic, paper, etc, into compact square bales. It uses a hydraulic press to compress the recyclables, making them easy to store and transport to recycling centres. A baler machine is usually found in industries where there is an excess of recyclable materials produced, such as retail shops or warehouses. 

Baler vs compactor

Whilst a baler and a compactor might use similar technology, such as a hydraulic pressing mechanism, they are both used for different aspects of the waste disposal process. 

A baler machine will be used to compress recyclable waste such as cardboard, paper, plastic, etc. Whilst a compactor is used to compress non-recyclable waste such as cling film, bubble wrap, coffee cups etc. 

Both machines will produce condensed cubes of waste materials, and they both serve to reduce the volume of waste on-site, making the transport and storage of the waste management process much more efficient. 

Product Description of the GV-500 Baler Machine 

The GV-500 Baler Machine is a long-lasting, durable piece of machinery that will improve the current waste management process in your operation. It has been built with optimal performance in mind, whilst still maintaining a simple-to-use operating system. 

Check out the product description below: 

Sliding door for ease of material entry

A sliding feed door features a counterweight slider for easy lifting and provides an extremely large and unobstructed material feed area making it very easy to load material into the GV500. 

The door itself has been designed so that it will open automatically after a compaction cycle has been completed, making it easier to load in materials. The twin mesh windows allow for the progress of the compaction to be viewed as the baler operates.

Mechanical bale eject system

The GV500 comes complete with a mechanical bale eject system, therefore, permitting the user to safely and conveniently deposit the bale onto a pallet, pallet truck or forklift in a controlled manner. The fact that the system is mechanical, adds a degree of simplicity and durability to this baler.

A two-handed bale eject system ensures that the user is standing away from danger when ejecting bales. This requires the operator to press both Bale Eject Buttons (each button is located at opposite sides of the control panel) in doing so this eliminates the risk of injury to the operator during the bale eject process.

Despite the two-handed eject system, the controls are simple and easy to use with a single-touch operation required to complete a full bale cycle.

Suitable for outdoor use

All electrical components of the GV-500 Baler Machine are IP55 rated, making it suitable for use in outdoor conditions. This is a great advantage for businesses that have little storage space inside their premises. It can also provide a solution for those who want to keep their waste management processes outside their building, for health and hygiene practices. 

Able to produce 500 kg bales

Another impressive feature of the GV-500 Baler Machine is the fact that it can produce 500kg bales. This ensures that businesses that produce large quantities of recyclable waste can easily dispose of their waste materials, without having to make space to store large quantities of rubbish and recyclables.
