PHS Orwak Unveils New Stronger, Faster, Dynamic Baler Range

SONY DSCPHS Orwak, distributors of Orwak balers and compactors in the UK are now introducing a new Orwak range of high performance power balers which are stronger, faster and compactly designed to make installation easier in environments with low ceiling heights.

The new “Orwak Power” family of balers incorporates its unique Black Star Technology – an innovative hydraulic system which is based on the reverse technique of pulling the press plate downwards to compact the material rather than the traditional method of pushing it. This has enabled a more compact machine design with the cylinders placed at the bottom of the baler and means the cylinders are at the strongest point when the pressure peaks.

The slightly spherical shape balers not only provide more strength and durability while using less energy but compacts into very dense bales. PHS Orwak Power balers are significantly faster and can handle high volumes of packaging material while also featuring autostart, extremely fast shutters and short cycle times. They have all attained a performance level D safety rating making them the leader in the industry.

Martin Hewitt, Commercial  Manager at PHS Orwak said “The new balers have been designed with the customer’s needs entirely in mind. We have known for some time that the height of the baler can be restrictive and the Orwak manufacturer has redesigned the internal mechanism and lowered the height of the unit, which means they are easier to incorporate into commercial workspaces. Perhaps more importantly Tomra Compaction has placed a high emphasis on creating a baler with the highest health and safety standards built in. The Power balers all perform a full safety check each time they are used. We are delighted with the efficiency of this new range.”

The Orwak Power Range includes the Orwak Power 3320 which has the lowest installation height at 1980mm and creates the lightest bales, the 3420 is a versatile baler ideal for large volumes of packaging material with a fast cycle time of 24 seconds, a heavy-duty model (3620) and a baler with an extra generous infeed to accommodate large boxes (3820) completes the range.
