MAC 111/2 baler

The MAC 111/2 baler is characterised by its long-lasting, robust and easy maintenance capabilities.

Following the success of the MAC 2 range, the MAC 111 is now available with updated features and extended channel sections for higher compaction.

Available through Australian distributor CEMAC technologies, the baler has been designed to treat large quantities of material in a short space of time, including paper, PET, metals and refuse-derived fuel.

Using 15-millimetre Hardox 450 steel, bolted as opposed to welded for easy changeover, total protection of the internal parts of the baler is achieved, increasing the lifetime of the machine.

Using REXROTH variable flow pumps and high efficient IE3 electrical drives, Macpresse also further improved the hydraulic block for better wear resistance and counter pressure control.

The trolley runs on eight high strength bearing side rollers with enlarged diameters. The ram features hinged front guards to stop wire blockages.

In terms of compacting ability, the compacting cylinder provides a thrust of 170 tonnes at 320 bar, completing a full forward/baling/return cycle in 12 seconds with material.

Additionally, a movable tying unit connected to a hydraulic cylinder can be used during the cutting and twisting phase of the wires, proving to be particularly useful for difficult-to-bale materials. The machine can be optionally equipped with a POLY-TIE wire tying system.

SSE Europa also offers a Siemens TP1200 operating panel and software for real-time diagnostics.

An array of processing capacity: Komptech and ELB Equipment

Reduced maintenance, time and expenses remain high priorities for leading international technology supplier Komptech, which is providing a point of market differentiation through its Nemus drum screen.

Contrary to competitor products, the Nemus leverages an open engine compartment accessible from all sides – adding an extra layer of safety for on-site material management. The engine unit is also hydraulically extendable allowing for streamlined oil checks.

With maintenance made easy, the side wall can be folded separately or together with the drum for further changes and cleaning.

The Nemus Maxx Primus drum screens by Komptech were designed for a variety of applications, including compost, wood/biomass, soil/gravel and shredded bulk, household, residual and refuse-derived fuels.

Controllable hopper and drum rotation speeds support precise material alignment. Drum overfilling is prevented by a load-dependent hopper control to support compost processing.

Komptech drum screens effectively process high-bulk materials such as wood/biomass through a feed hopper tailored to the drum size.

When it comes to processing excavated material such as sand, gravel and lightweight building rubble, Komptech has a solution for heavy materials. Solid contraries are kept back by a hinged hopper pre-screen and a hopper belt controller that prevents skewing on the belt.

In processing shredded, household, residual waste and RDF, the machine creates ample space between screen drums and side walls for a smooth operation.

Komptech also has a cellular application called “Connect!” which reports events and diagnosis codes, in addition to data on operating hours, fuel consumption and idle time by mobile radio to a central data sever.

GCM Enviro is the sole distributor of Terra Select machinery in Australia.

Garwood International’s exclusive Vehicle Weigh Solutions range

Garwood International is the exclusive Australian and New Zealand dealer for the Vehicle Weighing Solutions range of weighing systems.

Products include Enviroweigh, LoadWeight and the Vehicle Overload Protection System (VOPS).

Garwood supplies the European licensed-for-trade EnviroWeigh system which is able to accurately weigh individual mobile garbage bins. The system allows for accuracy of 0.5 per cent or better during the normal loading cycle and there is no need to stop the lift cycle. The EnviroWeigh system provides individual bin weights while displaying a running total of collected weights, helping crews to prevent overloads.

The LoadWeigh is designed for high accuracy in rugged conditions and according to Garwood International, is the first choice for waste collectors.

The Vehicle Weighing Solutions weigher helps to manage overloads by measuring the weight of the vehicle and its payload, minimising damage to running gear, tyres and braking systems. Benefits include the ability to ascertain net, load, gross and axle weights as well as seamless integration to GPS/GPRS tracking systems.

Truck operators increase profits and protect investment by reducing the risk of running light and wasting money.

The VOPS 2 has been developed by Vehicle Weighing Solutions as a sophisticated yet simple solution that can be fitted to most types/categories of vehicle, whether the suspension is steel or air. It gives the driver accurate loading information when and where it is needed.

The VOPS 2 vehicle overload protection system aims to be an extremely reliable enclosed measurement system that does not rely on springs or moving parts.

The TDS 825 slow-speed shredder

Terex Ecotec has launched a range of TDS 825 robust twin shaft, slow-speed shredders, ideal for large scale operations.

The high capacity machine is suitable for all material types including household waste, bulky waste, commercial waste, green waste, waste wood, tree stumps and roots.

Customisable shredding programs allow operators to configure the machine to their specific requirements to maximise production.

The hydrostatic drive offers protection against contamination and allows for bidirectional shredding, while independent gear boxes enable each shaft to run separately, helping reduce wrappage and improve shredding.

Should a blockage occur the shafts can be controlled via the radio remote control, allowing material to be repositioned before attempting to shred again.

The double shaft shredder has 2.5 long shafts made from solid steel, with a fully welded tooth configuration giving an extremely high production rate with excellent size reduction.

Located in the centre of the chamber, directly below the shredding shafts is the replaceable breaker bar, which controls the end product size by retaining material in the chamber to aid reduction and protects the transfer belt from damage caused by large pieces of contaminants.

A number of breaker bar options are available depending on the level of reduction required, these are easily replaceable due to News Release the side door chamber access.

Powered by a 770HP Scania V8 DC16 engine, the machine has been designed to provide operators with unrivalled levels of service access.

The high volume, tipping hopper increases the feed area providing optimum material feed and can be activated using the control panel or via the remote control. Tipping cycle times can be configured to suit the application.

Hydraulic folding hopper extensions allows for increased capacity, preventing the infeed material from falling out especially in bulky applications.

The overband magnet providing magnetic separation is both height and angle adjustable hydraulically, and lifts up and away from the product conveyor when not in use. All conveyors are built to a modular design allowing each one to be removed independently for ease of maintenance.

A separate transfer conveyor with a high specification belt ensures material is effectively removed from below the shredding chamber. The product conveyor raises hydraulically and folds into maintenance mode to allow removal of the transfer conveyor.

The TDS 825 is manoeuvred via a robust tracked undercarriage making it a great solution for difficult terrain.

The new TDS 825 Slow Speed Shredder is now available in Australia from Finlay Screening & Crushing Systems.

ifm O3M photoelectric 3D sensors

The waste industry is increasingly looking towards technology to improve throughputs and drive operational efficiency. With this in mind, ifm has developed a new generation of 3D Smart Sensors to further increase the automation level of mobile machines and drive operational efficiency.

Using the time-of-flight principal, the O3M photoelectric 3D sensor measures the distance between the sensor and the nearest surface point. The unit illuminates the scene with an external infrared light source and calculates the distance by means of the light reflected from the surface.

The O3M’s integrated, automatic object recognition detects up to 20 stationary or moving objects in the vehicle’s path. By comparing the current speed, the motion vector and fixed parameters, such as breaking distance, collision probability is calculated by the 3D sensor and transferred to the machine control system via CAN bus or Ethernet, before being signalled to the driver.

A highly developed algorithm from the automotive sector and a frame rate of up to 50 frames per second allows fast and reliable calculation of the 3D data. Additionally, the specially modulated infrared light enables continuously high recognition rates, even with reflective material of varied intensity.

The O3M is used in waste disposal vehicles for automatic recognition of dangerous situations such as during reversing or placing container bins.
