Apollo’s Baling Press
Apollo has one main kind of Baling Press, which is called the Big Bale Press. The machine is part of a package called “Big Bale Packaging Concept”. It is a compact machine that also has a fully automatic system for compressing, packaging and palletizing different bulk products. It can also be used for numerous compressible and cohesive products. The Press has three main components. It has the press, the roller conveyor and it has the pallet destacker. The material is put in the machine from above, after which it is compressed into a bale. Then the bale is placed onto a pallet, where it will be wrapped in foil. The foil will be sealed at the bottom of the bale as well as on the top. This limits overheating and prevents the contamination of the product. Because the wrapping foil is actually being stretched, the foil consumption is minimized. This will reduce the foil needed, making the Baling Press more environment friendly. The reduction of the use of the foil is about 60%, compared to the traditional packaging methods. The Big Bale Press is able to handle different sized of pallets, depending on the product. The Big Bale Press then reduces the capital outlays and minimizes expenses in transport, packaging materials and storage.
