Baler Installation Preparation

Whether you just purchased a new baler or just made a decision to buy a baler, you should think about the baler installation preparation and get everything prepared before the machine arrives at your facility. The delivery time for the baler may be short and may be long depending on different situations and baler type. You can utilize this time period to get ready for baler installation preparation when machine arrives. What to prepare and how early you should start to prepare will be depending on what type of baler you purchased and your own facility situation.

Here are some tips about baler installation preparation which are helpful to you for a successful installation.

1. Make sure you have a professional and experienced baler installer who has knowledge of hydraulic system and electrical system. If your own company doesn’t have one or cannot find any one by your own, you can ask the baler supplier to send a baler installer of budget allows.

2. Most industrial balers are designed to operate on three phase industrial electric power. The baler supplier will tell you the motor power of the baler. So your electrician can calculate the size of circuit needed. If not, you can also ask the baler supplier. In case you do not have 3 phase power supply available, you can prepare a generator to provide power to the baler.

3. Get ready for the tools that needed for baler installation. You can ask baler supplier to give you a list of what to prepare. For example, forklift or crane is a necessary tool to lift and move the machine. Usually vertical baler is easy to install and does not require too many tools, but automatic horizontal baler needs more tools.

4. Prepare the location where you plan to install the baler. Vertical baler usually has small footprint and is stand-alone machine, so it is easy to prepare the space for it. However for automatic horizontal baler, it mostly comes with a steel conveyor which you will need to dig a pit for placing the horizontal section of the conveyor.

5. If your baler supplier will send installer to set up the machine for you, check with them the installation procedures, time frame, and also training content.

6. Prepare enough waste material for making bales once the machine is installed.

7. Prepare enough baling wire for tying the bales when testing the machine.

Careful planning and comprehensive preparation before the baler arrives at your facility can not only make your installation process smoother and safer, but also saves your time and money.
