Europress Balex 50 Waste Baler

The Balex 50 mill size 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, and as you can see from the video, it deals with compacting large boxes with ease.  Overall, its an excellent choice for a wide range of uses.

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.

The Balex 50 has clear user pictogram instructions on the front panel for ease of operator usage and the key operated stop switch is supplied as standard.

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.
