New automated bale wire remover from Stadler

At Ifat, Stadler wants to show the WireX, that fully automates the wire removal process and dewires crosswired bales in one pass.

Baling wire is essential in the recycling industry: without it, it would be far more difficult to collect, transport and handle the large amounts of waste materials that enter the recycling process. However, the extensive use of wire means that recycling facilities face the challenge of dewiring the bales efficiently and safely.

Using sensor detection and measurement systems, the new Wirex measures the bales and removes the wires from single- and cross-wired bales in one pass without double feeding. The steel dewiring unit is integrated into a steel frame resistant to vibration, also made of steel. The machine geometry is designed for standard bale dimensions to ensure smooth operation.

The bales are fed onto the machine by an independent conveyor, guided by a moving push plate onto the floor plate, which keeps the bale in position. Sensors located above the input conveyor, inside the chamber and on the flap ensure the bale is positioned correctly with high precision. Once the bale is in position, combs are pushed into the bale to fix the wire for cutting. The bale measurement system ensures the cutters move in the bale correctly. When the cutting is done, the combs pull out and the wires are coiled up and discharged by a small integrated conveyor into a separate bin, ready for recycling. The floor plate opens, and the bale falls onto a conveyor placed below the machine, which will feed the material into the sorting system.
