Plastic wire cuts fines

Bag & Bale, a supplier of baling wire, tape and twine as well as compactor sacks, was showing its new plastic wire.

This has been designed as a replacement for conventional baling wire for those markets for use on vertical or horizontal fully automatic balers with tying units. The wire was devised after the company’s research found penalties were being paid in the EU for wire-tied wrapped bales.

The new plastic wire can directly replace wire to avoid such a penalty, with only small parameter changes needed to the operation of the machine (ie number of twists) to ensure the product holds during recovery.

During recent testing, bales of 950kg+ were successfully tied without incident. The product is available in the UK in 13,000m reels.
