Bale Handling


Paper bale handling is an extremely tough and harsh application which involves the handling of bales of pulp and recovered paper at recycling facilities or receiving area of paper mills. Paper bale products are the main raw materials used in the manufacture of paper.

Bale handling applications usually operate 24 hours a day and five days a week, often more during peak production times. Material handling equipment needs to be able to work this hard to keep momentum.

Other complexities which can further design consideration include no bale size uniformity, inconsistent bale weight and water absorption, all of which can change bale weight dramatically.

Understanding the application and being able to configure the right conveyor and system means OKAY is able to provide customers with a solution to handle these tough environments.
