Version with sliding belt conveyor
Hydraulic hose with safety trap and brust protection

The fully automated horizontal baler AVOS 88 is perfectly suitable to compact cardboard, paper, plastics, and other recyclable materials. State of the art technology according to the C standard for horizontal balers published in 2013 (DIN EN 16252).

  • The frame of the machine consists of a solid welded construction and is provided for the fastening on the floor with dowels.
  • Rapid motion/power speed control system as well as an automatic speed adaptation, depending on the necessary pressing power, for the increase of the throughput capacity.
  • Cutting knives on the force plate and on the counter plate for cutting off the overhanging material in the hopper section. Temper of the knives: 56 + 4 HRC
  • Press ram guiding with low-maintenance plastic guides, highly wear-resisting, and indifferent to dust. Excellent accessibility for easy adjustment of the press ram guides, to minimize cutting forces.
  • Press ram cover for continuous feeding.
  • Three-sided adjustment of press channel, regulation depending on pressing power, to achieve maximum bale weights.
  • Automatic binding with drill fingers made of highly wear-resisting NAXTRA material as well as separate wire cutting knife guarantees a safe binding of bales.
  • Wire diameters available: 2.8 mm (standard)/3.1 mm
  • Free programmable PLC, Siemens Simatic S 7, including switching and control elements.
  • Potential free contacts for emergency stop, automatic mode, general fault, overfill protection, material feed conveyor belt.
  • Integration of external emergency stop in the baler control.
  • Electrically controlled bale length measuring system.
  • Touchscreen display: 7.5’’ TFT – 96 MB, 640 x 480 pixels (SVGA), for operation of the machine incl. presentation of the operation condition and press performance. Possible errors are also shown and described on the panel. Operating temperature from 0° to 55° C.
  • Heating of the control cabinet.
  • Photo cells inside the hopper of the baler for the press stroke control and as overcharge protection.
  • Capacity controlled, power saving press ram drive via axial piston pump.
  • Type Rexroth A10, operating pressure 220 bar.
  • First equipment of hydraulic oil HLP 46, capacity: 450 l, with oil level switch which switches off the machine in case of an excessively low oil level.
  • Oil/Air cooling unit for the hydraulic oil.
  • Oil filtration with 3 µm filter.
  • Hydraulic unit with screwed-on valves mounted on the hydraulic block, easily accessible for maintenance.
  • Rexroth valve technology for gentle and energy-saving system operation.

  • Feeding chute:
    To connect a conveyor belt, for the automatic feed.
  • Bale slide:
    1.2 x 3.0 m
  • Binding wire (6 x 20 kg):
    Annealed and oiled binding wire with a diameter of 2.8 mm (according to DIN 177) for binding of bales.
    1 set = 6 coils à 20 kg.
  • Mechanical crimping pliers incl. aluminium clamps:
    To connect new, complete wire coils. The connection is effected by aluminum clamps (1,000 pieces included).
  • Oil heating
    To pre-heat the hydraulic oil, for temperatures < 6°C; power: 1,000 watts.
  • Remote access:
    Through an industrial router in connection with an M2M SIM-card, an interface is created with the control unit of the machine so that the inputs and outputs of the SPS can be displayed in an internet portal. Running costs according to tariff or by network cable provided locally.
  • Inclined conveyor belt
    To feed the baler, designed as a sliding belt conveyor.
    The belt supporting structure is a solid welded torsion reinforced steel construction for fastening with dowels.
    The conveyor belt is designed as rubber belt with fabric insert and attachments.
  • Pit cover for sliding belt conveyor
    In the field of the horizontal belt, particularly solid design, accessible by floor conveyors.
  • Personal protection system:
    An antenna module is mounted above the conveyor belt in front of the filling opening of the baler. The magnetic field of this antenna module monitors the entire length of the conveyor belt. Individuals under protection wear a so-called personal protection module on their clothing or on their wrist.
    If a person wearing such a module now enters the field under magnetic monitoring, it will be detected by the system and the entire plant will automatically and immediately shut down.
    The personal protection system consists of:

    Antenna module
    Evaluation module
    Self-test module
    PSM personal protection module (wristband version)
    PSM test device
    Additional wristbands are charged separately.

    A personal protection system is compulsory in accordance with DIN EN 16252:2013-03 for underfloor feeding conveyor systems.
    Exception: The conveyor system control device is not self-supporting and is arranged in such a way that the operator can easily see the danger zone.
