The order sees the installation of Whitham Mills’ GB1575TR fully automatic twin ram baler along with a full refurbishment of their existing conveyor at a major UK-based automotive OEM, including several modifications such as an increased hopper size ensuring smoother automation.
The GB1575TR is capable of producing bales weighing in excess of 750kg at a rate of 13 tonnes per hour. The GB1575TR will also be installed with a hydraulic de-blocker as extra safety protection meaning that blockages in the bale chamber caused by oversized cardboard will be unblocked by an automated system. This is an important addition to the baler as Leadec collect and bale cardboard boxes with dimensions in excess of 1800mm x 1200mm x 1500mm.
Ben Smart the Managing Director of Whitham Mills commented “Working with a world-renowned company such as Leadec is a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate our engineering expertise. The GB1575TR is one of the most powerful machines on the market and will service the needs of Leadec, now and long into the future.”
