Balers and compactor solutions for metal industry - Metal

You can use a baler for compacting light metal waste like food cans and alu cans, and a drum press for empty oil barrels.

Alu cans

In general you find aluminium waste in the shape of alu cans coming from soda and beer cans.

Empty alu cans can be well compacted in balers with a relatively high press force. It is important that the material is well compacted already from the bottom of the baler, therefore our X-series balers with a long cylinder stroke is very suitable for this purpose.

We recommend that you put a layer of cardboard at the bottom and on top of the bale to keep it stable. Sometimes you might also benefit from wrapping the finished bale with plastic film.

Food cans

Used food cans and containers are generated in huge numbers, not only in restaurants but also in public places like hospitals, schools, care homes and the like.

Empty cans and containers can be difficult to compact. You will therefore need a strong machine that can handle this heavy material. The baler you choose must able to press deep into the material in order to make a stable bale that will stick together.

Steel drums

Steel drums are used for containing eg. oil and paint.

Often steel drums take up a lot of space in the companies where they are used. If the drums are thrown into containers, they take up considerable space and the weight of the container is rather low.

Instead of this way of storage you can compact the empty steel drums in our drum press, with a very good result. The drum press makes the drums all flat and then they can be stacked, taking up only a minimum of space.
