  • Cardboard and Recycling

    How often do you deal with cardboard on a regular basis? If you run your own business or have a slight shopping addiction, the answer is probably a lot. Boxes can help your everyday tasks in so many ways. Cardboard is helpful for wrapping gifts, delivering packages and so much more. They are so helpful when they are being used, but when they are not being used, they tend to take up a lot of room. Large and bulky, they can be hard to store, and once you no longer...

  • Cardboard Reduction

    New recycling plants are opening constantly as recycling gains momentum. As they expand, new and even more efficient balers are being purchased. Many are even created to be geared towards a specific use. For instance, cardboard balers are designed specifically for, you guessed it, baling cardboard. A fact that I did not know is that we generate roughly two and a half pounds of diesel air pollution every time we empty the cardboard from the dumpster. This is a lot of pollution considering how often dumpsters tend to need to...

  • Cardboard from Restaurants to Retail

    While going to college I worked part time at a restaurant as a server. My sister meanwhile chose to work in retail. One thing they both had in common they both received giant shipments every week. Boxes upon boxes would arrive. For me, they were filled with wine and food items, for my sister clothes, bedding and kitchen supplies. While the boxes were necessary for the delivery, afterwards they typically are not needed. A couple of my fellow employees would take advantage of the boxes, offering to take them to...

  • Instead of Jumping on Cardboard Boxes, Cardboard Balers

    Cardboard waste is often hard to deal with. The pieces are large and awkwardly shaped making them take up too much space in trashcans, recycling bins and dumpsters. At one of my previous jobs, I used to have to jump on them to flatten them so they could fit. While it was fun to do most of the time, it could also be embarrassing and annoying. To battle this inconvenience, cardboard balers are often employed. While they are designed for baling cardboard and corrugated cardboard, often they can also be...

  • Advantages of a Horizontal Cardboard Baler

    When I worked in the warehouse at my local superstore I became quite familiar with our horizontal cardboard baler. I used it every day, multiple times a day to discard empty cardboard boxes after re-stocking shelves. With a storeroom full of products shipped and stored in cardboard boxes, and a constant flow of merchandise to the sales floor, we produced a lot of cardboard waste and there was often a line for the baler. Even though it was getting a little old by the last year I worked there, I...

Cardboard Balers

Balers, or baler machines, are industrial equipment used to compress a wide variety of waste materials and byproducts into small, manageable bundles. These bundles, called bales, can then be more easily transported, disposed of, stored, handled or recycled. There are a number of different types of balers in categories both broad and specific. One kind of baler that has a very specific used is the cardboard baler. Cardboard balers compress and bind both cardboard and similar waste materials, such as paper and plastic. Usually, they do so for recycling purposes, whether that be in preparation for shipment, for temporary storage or for the general minimization of cardboard waste. Because cardboard, especially in the form of tubes and boxes, is such a commonly used material and because it tends to take up so much room, cardboard baling is quite popular in a number of industries, including manufacturing, retail and consumer goods and services.

The choice of what kind of cardboard baler to purchase depends, in part, on an interested party’s particular needs and budget. Many baler manufacturers group their cardboard balers according to the bale size that they produce. For example, a 26 inch baler produces a 26 inch wide bale. The standard cardboard baler is called the “6030,” baler, which means that it measures 60 inches wide by 30 inches deep. If they wish, baler customers may reject these standards and instead request custom-designed cardboard balers that produce bales in lengths and widths specific to the requirements and/or allowances of their recycling, storage or transportation capabilities. Also, high waste-producing businesses, such as retailers or food processors, may be interested in installing complete turn-key recycling systems around one or more individual balers. This choice would give them a green operation from head to toe, thus helping them reduce their impact on the environment. In addition to reducing carbon emissions, reducing a business’ volume of waste will make the process of disposal quicker, easier and less expensive. For companies that can afford it, complete turn-key recycling systems are a win-win. Of course, not every business or company is willing or able to invest in a brand-new, specialized system. Fortunately, custom balers are not necessary for an application to work. Also, cardboard balers are extremely durable pieces of equipment, and they are widely available for second-hand purchase. Used balers, if properly refurbished, can work just as well as any new baler. They are available for purchase from both online retailers and more traditional manufacturers of new and used balers. Those who wish to purchase a used cardboard baler should make sure to have it suitably tested, to make sure that it is in full working condition and that the quality of workmanship and material with which it was originally made is up to par.

Whatever their choice, cardboard baler customers will most likely end of up purchasing a vertical baler. Cardboard balers are available as both vertical and horizontal balers, but because vertical balers are more well-suited to lightweight waste compression, they are the more logical choice. Note that vertical balers are named as such because their input zone, or where the material is loaded, is located at the top end of the baler. After it enters the baler, it is fed down into the baler’s chamber, where one or more hydraulic arms pound and crush it into a compact bale. Horizontal balers, on the other hand, are loaded from the side and they process baling materials horizontally as well. While generally less popular for this application, horizontal balers do offer an ability to bear greater loads of weight. Also, because, unlike vertical balers, they are usually loaded and unloaded automatically, they are more efficient than their counterpart. So, they may be found in the place of vertical balers where the cardboard being baled is heavy-duty or very high in quantity. Both systems use the power of hydraulics to accomplish compaction, because hydraulic systems tend to be more efficient than others and because they need and produce less heat to function. In addition, both vertical and horizontal cardboard balers can be equipped with an automated system that binds the bales before they fully exit the machine. This features ensures that bales do not come loose or fall apart prematurely.

Recycling balers are popular machines, and for good reason. The reduction and recycling of waste is a huge and important undertaking for which all modern businesses must do their part. Cardboard baling is a necessary process. It frees space; it creates a safer, more productive work environment; it is environmentally responsible and, if a manufacturer develops a comprehensive waste management system, it may even provide an additional source of revenue.
