Fabric Balers

Olympic Wire and Equipment provides balers for the textile/clothing industry with more automation and reliability than others can offer.Horizontal Baler at Fabric facilities Consequently, these machines are highly efficient at producing large solid bales while using less wire, consuming less electricity, and requiring less handling per baled ton. This is not a paper baler. We perfected the baling process for Goodwill Industries, Salvation Army, Savers and many others with specific design changes to the baler’s charge box area and extrusion chamber and most importantly, with special training to all operators on loading and cycling. The resulting bales of clothing are easier to load, stack and ship saving these industries time and labor, increased bale weights and maximizing their revenue.

Why Is Bale Wire So Expensive?

“Why is wire so expensive?” Supply and demand plays a huge part in this but there are also a number of other factors that contribute to the high cost of manufacturing, producing and distributing goods as widely used as steel wire rod. If you’re using a baler day in and day out at your facility then you already know the importance steel wire rod plays into your department’s everyday functions and productivity.

It’s rare to find a facility that manufactures baling wire in areas local to its most fervent users. Thus, the wire needs to be trucked out to various locations and warehouses, stored and then shipped out when need be. These expenses, though inconsequential at first glance, add up to the greater cost of baling wire to the end user. It is imperative that users such as yourself have an understanding on the supply chain that your wire goes through in order to reach its final destination. Wire prices are not arbitrarily set by companies supplying the product but determined by much larger factors that are often out of the hands of your vendor. Timing is also another issue but less so in allowing you to secure a good deal on pricing. If you see an increase in the goods and services you use on a daily basis in your own life, then it should come as little surprise to see such an increase in the materials you use at work.

Pictures of Balers @ Living Spaces

THE OLYMPIC WIRE & EQUIPMENT AUTO-TIE HORIZONTAL BALER

When Living Spaces of Rialto, CA. expanded to a 900,000 square foot
Distribution Center (DC), management knew they needed a dependable
baler in their new location. Living Spaces selected Olympic to design
and install their system. Not only did Living Spaces want to play a role
in recycling its scrap, they also wanted to capture the revenue
generated from the scrap of the baled corrugated boxes.
Since the Auto-Tie Baler would be located inside the facility, loud noise, dust and labor savings were of great importance. Management of Living Spaces mentioned that all but one bidder quoted expensive
shredders to accomplish their requirements. Olympic Wire & Equipment was that only bidder to design the system without a loud and dusty shredder. Olympic, having more than 26 years of design experience,
recommended a baler and conveyor combination that would eliminate the use of a shredder avoiding any jams or bridging in the baler’s hopper and achieving high demand capacity. This is a great success says Living Spaces management. They saved over $100,000 in costs, as well as staying away from a noisy and
dusty shredder which requires a great deal of maintenance.
The baler features a very large feed hopper opening, which means Living Spaces employees do not have to spend time breaking down, flattening or dismantling boxes. Employees simply put the large boxes on the in-feed conveyor in the DC, which meters the boxes to the baler for processing. No employee handles the
boxes again until the complete bale is stored or loaded in an overseas container or truck that delivers direct
to the paper mills. Whether the bales are loaded in an overseas container or truck, full payloads are
accomplished with Olympic’s Auto-Tie balers.
Because the baler has a very quick cycle time and only requires 8 seconds to tie off all ten (10) wires, the
facility does not have to cease operation waiting for the baler hopper to clear. This keeps the operation
running smoothly even during the busiest times of the month. Olympic Wire & Equipment provides balers
with this design from required capacities of 100 to 7,300 tons per month. For more information please
