What is a baler?

In the early days, balers were commonly a farm machinery used to compress cut and raked crops into compact bales for easy handling, transport, and storage. Over the years, balers have taken on an increased role as the business world takes a more environmentally-friendly approach and waste recycling becomes the norm. Most localities have laws regarding how to transport and dispose of large scale manufacturing waste, and balers help companies meet these regulations by compacting their waste into an acceptable form. This helps create an eco-friendly waste solution.

Industrial balers nowadays come in all shapes and sizes, and they have all manner of characteristics depending on the type of materials they bale. These waste compactors are generally made of steel with one or two hydraulic rams to compress the material loaded. That is why some call these balers as hydraulic baling press. It can be used to compact various types of reusable resources and waste, such as office paper, corrugated cardboard, plastic, foil and cans, textile waste, natural and animal fiber, and so on.

Manual balers are typically in vertical style with smaller footprint, and very simple to operate. Such baling machine type is suitable for companies with space constraint and lower volume demand. Other hydraulic baling presses designed to handle large daily quantities of material are usually the horizontal range of baling equipments, with minimum labour demand as the entire feeding, compressing, tying and bale ejecting process can be fully automated.
