US-based L&P Wire-Tie Systems showed its Pinnacle Select twoin- one tying machine.
This allows the user to switch between wire and plastic ties with the touch of a button, rather than using two separate machines to run plastic and wire ties around bales of recyclables or RDF/SRF.
According to L&P, the machine’s head placement allows for greater tension strength and a cleaner work environment with tighter bales and better welds. It also features an Intelligent Control system, with a touchscreen that gives the user quick and easy access to troubleshooting steps.
Intelligent Control sends an alert when high-wear parts need to be replaced, helping the user control inventory and schedule reorders of materials and parts. Real-time monitoring of wire usage and remote access through ethernet allow the user to stay on top of production flow in or out of the office.
A removable core is included, which houses over 90% of the machine’s wear parts. A new core can be swapped in while repairs are made, limiting downtime to less than five minutes.
