Hydraulic balers with pushing forces of up to 60 tonnes are available, such as the Mil-tek HZT600 Horizontal Baler. This product is engineered to withstand long periods of continuous use in environments that generate substantial quantities of packaging, cardboard, and plastic waste.

More than two mill size bales of cardboard or plastic can be produced every hour by a HZT600 horizontal baler when it is operating at full production. Bales that are mill size can be shipped straight to recycling mills to be processed and recycled.

A one cubic metre area may be continually and securely loaded with rubbish through a huge aperture, and then pushed indefinitely. Garbage may be fed into the machine in a continual fashion because to its 28-second pressing cycle.

The pressing cycle will automatically resume if the machine detects that garbage is being loaded. Upon pressing all of the garbage, the sensors will also automatically stop.

The high pressing force and speed of horizontal balers makes them ideal for businesses that handle large volumes of waste cardboard, waste plastic, and waste packaging.

Logistics and distribution centres, packaging warehouses, recyclers and printing companies typically handle large volumes of bulky waste material, and horizontal waste baling machines allow them to do this efficiently.

Bales from a horizontal baler are tied manually using Easy Loop steel wire ties, followed by an automated bale-ejection process. Bales produced can be upwards of 450kg in weight depending on the material used, and can be easily stacked and stored on standard European pallets.
