A Reliable Baler and Exceptional Service for IPL Global's Upgraded Facility

Overview

IPL is a leading packaging provider, partnering with customers to deliver sustainable solutions to the food, consumer, agricultural, logistics and environmental end-markets. They required a replacement for their ageing baler and to employ a baler which was capable of handling increased throughput and mixed plastics with no cross-contamination.

Our Solution

IPL Global were in the process of installing a new MRF with McDonald International and approached us for a tailored solution. We suggested our Samson fully automatic baler, with a 100T compaction force and 37kW hydraulic power unit. This was then designed to seamlessly integrate into their upgraded facility and handle PET, HDPE and residual waste.

Other solutions we implemented were:

4m High Large Feed Hopper

We designed and manufactured a 4m high feeding hopper to integrate with the new plant and enhance overall performance.

Rear Placed Power Pack

This was agreed for space efficiency and also to enhance overall efficiency of the new, upgraded plant.

Customisations & Plant Integration

We worked closely with McDonald International, the plant builder, to ensure that the baler was designed to efficiently handle the mixed PET, HDPE and residual plastics coming into the plant. We successfully made several customisations to the baler to ensure that it suited their facilities. 

Machine Data Reporting

This model comes complete with a touch screen display with programmable material settings. This ensures that the customer is getting the best throughput and bale weights each different type of plastic baled. All of our twin ram baler models allow access to real-time performance data.

Installation

Our installation process included the removal of the old machine, training operators over multiple shifts, and then commissioning to guarantee consistent bale sizes.

Customer Benefits

The impact of our twin ram baler on IPL Global's operations is already evident.

Initial Challenges Dealt with Effectively

Our exceptional service and support was evident during the initial teething problems. As many manufacturers will recognise, not all installations run smoothly. In this case, once some initial issues were highlighted, we worked tirelessly to resolve the issues and went above and beyond to ensure no operational downtime was experienced.

High Density Bales

The twin ram baler comes with a separation door as standard, so expansive materials such as PET can be baled with full force - resulting in very consistent and uniform bales. These bales produced are of a high density, making them easier to handle and transport, resulting in cost savings. 

Processing Various Types of Plastics Quicker

Our twin ram baler is ideal for applications with multiple material waste streams. As IPL are baling various types of plastics, it means one particular material stream can be baled off and ejected before switching to the next.

High Throughputs

With its large capacity and high compaction force, the baler is processing more materials in a shorter amount of time, leading to reductions in storage and transportation costs.

This successful installation, underlines our commitment to advancing recycling technology, providing solutions that not only meet but exceed the evolving needs of its customers.
