Baler manufacturer Bollegraaf Recycling Solutions, based in the Netherlands, has introduced an electronic control system which increases bale weight up to 20%, regardless of the material.
The Adaptive Proportional Channel Press (APCP) system is available for Bollegraaf’s complete range of HBC balers. Dubbed ‘smart baling’, it automatically optimises channel pressures to make the heaviest and quickest bale on each grade and can autoadjust and auto-learn.
Instead of using a limited set of predefined settings, the APCP constantly evaluates, adjusts and ‘anticipates’ pressures over the entire baler system which saves operators time and reduces transport costs.
For companies that produce just few bales of every grade, the system means that frequent switching no longer affects the quality of bales; instead of adjustment challenges, any inconsistencies per material type are constantly and correctly compensated.
