In the past, cardboard boxes were distributed to several press containers that have been rented. According to Strautmann Umwelttechnik trucks brought the slightly compacted material to the disposer, where the material was further compacted. After this long process the bale was transported to the paper mill. It was a cost intensive detour.
The new solution directly at the source of material reduces the daily volume of 6 tons cardboard up to 90%. Direct marketable bales made a profitable disposal possible, the company says.
According to Strautmann Umwelttechnik the decision for the BaleTainer was made because of its unique economy. In less than two years the investment has paid off. The baleware from the BaleTainer is in great demand on the paper market and brings us the highest revenues, says Manfred Stahl from Wessels+Müller AG.The WM AG a market leader in vehicle parts wholesale delivers 45 million automotive parts per year. Goods are picked all around the clock in the central warehouse. Most parts are unpacked before being stored. This means that more than 500 tons of cardboard are produced each year.
A bale is not made in one piece but in three or four slices. Thanks to it’s compact machine design the baler can be set up directly at the source of material during operation. Disposal is weather-independent and the time and costs for long transport ways to the outside are reduced. Internal logistics are improved and ramps are free for the core business.
