What is your product?
Presona manufacture a large range of fully automatic balers, conveyors, air systems and compactors. The LP85VH is the newest member of the Presona baler family and was recently launched at the RWM exhibition
How does it work?
Presona balers are all fully automatic and equipped with Presona’s ‘Prepress Technology’. Loose material is fed into the baler, the prepress is then activated, compacting the material downward into the baler chamber. Once the prepress is fully inward the main press cycles, making the bale. The required bale length is then made and the bale is automatically tied with wire or polypropylene string for RDF & SRF. The resulting bale is very dense and homogenous.
Where would it ideally be used?
Presona balers are used in a wide variety of companies, major distribution centres, paper merchants, skip companies, recycling companies, printers, manufacturing and many others.
How is it different?
Presona balers are equipped with the Presona ‘Prepress technology’ which reduces energy consumption compared to typical ‘shear’ balers as the product is folded instead of being cut.
What benefits does it offer?
Presona balers are renowned throughout the industry as being exceptionally reliable. We also believe that the new LP85VH baler is the most energy efficient on the market today. With power costs always increasing, this is something our customers are very pleased with.
Where has it been used?
We have balers installed in major supermarket distribution centres around the county. These centres take back the packaging from food and household items from the stores; this is then processed through our balers to help keep transport costs of sending the material to the mills to a minimum.
Every machine quotation is different as each customer has different demands for their baling equipment, with a vast range of extras from remote displays, platforms and bale tracks to waste linings, inverter drives and different baler colours. The machine can all be adapted to suit every customers requirements.
Presona balers are typically 50% more energy efficient than typical ‘shear’ balers and with an outstanding build quality will give many years of uninterrupted service. Also with minimal wear to components and higher specification on parts and spares, running cost are kept to a minimum.
What about maintenance?
As with all equipment, regular maintenance is essential to keep the equipment in top condition. During the installation stage, the customer is shown essential daily/weekly maintenance that can be carried out in house. Presona offers maintenance packages based on the working hours of the machine and the actual requirements of each customer.
What is its life span?
We have machines that are over 30 years old, still in operation and still working reliably every day.
How is it future-proofed?
Constantly updating and developing the product to improve reliability, reduce energy consumption whilst making a baler to create the highest possible bale density for every product.
How many have you sold and where?
Presona have recently also sold seven machines to Russia for baling recyclables during the Winter Olympics. There are approximately 140 Presona balers within the UK, with balers installed in over 60 countries worldwide.
