Balers come in different sizes and designs so it’s not easy to choose something that will fit your requirements. New business owners are often quite confused by the number of options available to them and don’t know what to buy. It’s a good idea to consult with an expert or ask a dealer for advice before you make your purchase. If you’re looking for good balers for cardboard, you should consider the options mentioned below:
- Horizontal Baler
Horizontal balers are often used in larger recycling facilities that have higher demand. They take up more space and can be more expensive compared to vertical balers but they process more materials at a faster rate. If you expect a lot of volume and want to process a large amount of cardboard in your facility, you should consider this option for your business. In this baler, the bales are compressed from the sides instead of the top. Smaller balers need to be tied by hand but larger balers have auto-tying facilities.
- Vertical Baler
Vertical balers have a smaller footprint and don’t take up as much space. They’re ideal for smaller recycling facilities and processes cardboard well. The bales are formed with the help of vertical compression instead of horizontal compression and they’re smaller in size as well. Most vertical balers don’t have auto tie mechanisms so you need to tie the baling wire yourself. There are some vertical balers available in the market with automatic ties so if you want to save space and still get the convenience of automatic ties.
This baler is used in high-volume facilities and is very efficient in processes large amounts of cardboard materials. As the name suggests, this baler compresses materials from both sides with the help of two rams. You can keep channeling materials into the system and the system can keep churning the materials out. If you intend to purchase a two ram baler, we recommend that you purchase a used one.
These balers are great for processing and compressing cardboard. If you want to know more, don’t hesitate to contact the dealer and ask for advice.
