40 Tons Compaction Force

The Balex 40 baler is a heavy duty machine, equipped with cross cylinders for stable compression. It’s a compact machine and because it has a low overall height, it is very easy to locate in most environments.

It has a spacious chamber, even compacting large boxes with ease. Overall, its an excellent choice for a wide range of uses.

The Balex 40 has clear user pictogram instructions on the front panel for ease of operator usage and the key operated stop switch is supplied as standard.

The strap box is conveniently located at the front of the baler, which makes it easy and less time consuming to change the strap. Alternatively, wire can be used on this machine if preferred.

SMART Technology

When the bale is ready to be ejected, the bale full light switches on automatically. Bale ejection, a two handed operation, is straightforward and the bale fits comfortably on a EUR pallet. The operator’s time is saved thanks to the fast cycle time.

Balex utilizes a smart-central that has been tested in Europress’s range of compactors for a number of years, with a second generation version of this technology specifically for Balex now in use.

All the best functionality of the original smart technology design has been improved, with lots more additional functions added that have been specifically designed for balers. These improve safety, ease of use and durability of the machine.
