Autefa's Uni-Fork optimises bale pressing process

Two years back, Autefa Solutions, a producer of hydraulic fibre presses presented a new machine concept, the Uni-Fork, which optimises the process of pressing a bale.

As per an Autefa press release, the Uni-Fork also increases the efficiency of the process and improves the quality of the fibre packing.

One of its earliest customers, Shandong Yingli from China and a producer of Lyocell fibres invested in the technology since the fibre finds application in the hygiene industry.

Using the fiber in the hygienic industry means highest requirements for the bale packing, due to which the fibre producer bought the Uni-Fork and also the Ad-Wrap, which, while saving costs also improves quality.

“The central idea of the system is to use one transfer fork for one or more pre-presses and to also operate one or more of the main presses,” Autefa explained in the press release.

At Shandong Yingli, the system pre-presses and pre-compact's a bale after which these pre-compacted bales are taken out with the Uni-Fork and handed over to a central main-press.

The main-press compresses the bale totally and then straps the bale, after which, the bales are packed with two overlapping and elastic stretch hoods of polyethylene.

“In this way, the packing of the fibre bale is completely protected against dirt, hair and insects and also has protection against contamination like no other type of packing,” Autefa observed.

According to Autefa, companies who still strap and pack manually can quickly profit with the Ad-Wrap and a return on investment will be delivered in approximately 1.5 years.

Among other advantages, the Uni-Fork has capacity of up to 60 bales per hour per main press; however, Autefa offers customised solutions for producers who have capacities of even 300 tons per day.

“Both machines together form a system which leads to a strong reduction of personnel costs, high availability of the machine and a short amortisation period,” the company noted. (AR)
