Before we proceed to the types, let us first learn the meaning of a baling press. A baling press is a tool designed to squeeze recyclable waste into a larger bale to save space and for easier transport. This machine usually has one (or more) hydraulic arm(s) that presses waste together, and then creates a square bale that will be removed from the chamber. Now let’s proceed to the different types of baling press based on a few categories.
Types of Baling Press According to Structure
There are two types of baling press in terms of structure: horizontal press, and vertical press. The former has hydraulic arm(s) that functions on a vertical level. On the other hand, the latter has hydraulic arm(s) that operates on a horizontal plane.
Types of Baling Press According to Waste Handling
Although many types of baling press machines could handle almost all kinds of waste, some types are made for specific waste handling. Some of these include plastic materials/PET bottle baling press, tire baling press, metal baling press, fiber baling press, alfafa baling press, cardboard/paper baling press, textile baling press, plastic shell baling press, and more.
Types of Baling Press According to the Mode of Operation
In terms of the mode of operation, a baling press has three types: automatic, semi-automatic and manual. The automatic baling machine is more convenient to use if you need to handle a ton of recyclable waste. This way, the bale would be stacked and dispatched from the machine automatically. The manual baling machine requires the bale to be stacked discharged manually by the user. As its name suggests, the semi-auto machine functions somewhere between the manual and automatic variants.
Types of Baling Press According to the Mode of Operation and Belting Method
Just like the previous category, a baling press has three belting methods: automatic (usually for horizontal types), semi-automatic and manual tie baling machines.
Types of Baling Press According to Number of Cylinders
The vertical kind of baling press has different numbers of cylinders: single, double, and triple ram baling press machines.
