• Solutions for Tough Paper Bale Handling Applications

    Paper bale handling is an extremely tough and harsh application which involves the handling of bales of pulp and recovered paper at recycling facilities or receiving area of paper mills. Paper bale products are the main raw materials used in the manufacture of paper.

    Bale handling applications usually operate 24 hours a day and five days a week, often more during peak production times. Material handling equipment needs to be able to work this hard to keep momentum.

    Other complexities which can put high stress on both the attachment and truck front end include the lack of bale size uniformity, inconsistent bale weight and water absorption increasing recycled paper bale weight dramatically.

    Understanding the application and being able to configure the right truck and attachment means Hyster is able to provide customers with a solution to handle these tough environments.
