The shelves have to be restocked, the queue at the checkout is getting longer by the second, the phone rings and the overfilled mesh trolleys with cardboard boxes stand around on the sales floor and in the warehouse before you can finally bring them to the press. A typical daily routine in food retailing. When it comes to waste disposal, however, your staff can be relieved with the help of the AutoLoadBaler from Strautmann Umwelttechnik.
The AutoLoadBaler revolutionises the entire disposal process of cardboard boxes in all areas of application from retail to logistics to manufacturing. Previously time-consuming, manual filling work is now carried out mechanically and automatically.revolutionises the entire disposal process of cardboard boxes in all areas of application from retail to logistics to manufacturing. Previously time-consuming, manual filling work is now carried out mechanically and automatically. The filling and compaction of the press is now monitored by an intelligent system and no longer by the operator directly. Based on practical experience and studies, this results in a saving in working time of up to 3 hours and 43.5 mins per bale – this corresponds to an increase in productivity of over 800%.
The operators collect the cardboard packaging on the sales floor, in the warehouse or in production with the help of a large-volume collection cart and then bring it to the AutoLoadBaler. Here, the collection carts are then exchanged. The filled collection cart is pushed into the machine, with an empty one the work can be continued directly. Thus, the cardboard boxes neither take up space in the business premises and in the warehouse, nor is valuable working time spent on filling.
The filling and pressing process of the baler starts automatically and the operator can carry out other work. The cardboard is fed into the baling chamber by slowly rotating feed rollers. As soon as the baling chamber is filled, the baling process starts automatically. It takes up to 70 collection car loads to press a direct saleable bale weighing over 400 kg. As soon as a bale is compacted in the press, it can be tied and placed on a pallet for removal. It is no longer necessary to repress the bales. The bales can be directly transported to the recycler.
