Brand New Wrapping Machine That Will Revolutionise Waste Baling

Area RR180 waste baling wrapping machine

Share This Post

We recently welcomed our Italian partners to Basingstoke, where we discussed some exciting new developments in the pipeline. Including the new RR 180 wrapping machine which is set to take the RDF and waste baling sector by storm.

Saying "Buongiorno" to some new wrapping machines 👋

Our friends over at Area Packaging joined us last week to present some developments in their range of ring horizontal stretch wrapping machines.

They took us through some of the applications of their successful and vastly dependable R9 and Ring machines, as well as giving us a preview of some brand new products.

And, despite it being an entirely confidential private meeting, we’re going to bring you into the circle of trust. Don’t say we don’t treat you!

The Area RR 180 - the future of waste baling ♻️

The biggest news coming out of the presentation is the brand new RDF and waste baling stretch wrapping machine – the Area RR 180

This wrapping machine uses stretch film to completely encase the bale, by closing all faces and corners. Check out this video below to see what it’s capable of:

You can adjust the number of film layers on the control panel, ensuring the bale is fully wrapped from all sides. This means that minimal material is wasted and it vastly reduces leakage, because no-one likes bin-juice all over the floor 🤢.

The machine operates on an infeed and outfeed conveyor with a stretch film height of 500 mm and 17 – 35 microns.

With an excellent operating speed of approximately 2 minutes per cycle, the oscillating platform ensures your bale is wrapped up like gift at Christmas. Although I’m not sure a bail of recycled waste is high on anyone’s list for Santa.

Are you looking to take your waste baling operation to the next level? Or any type of large-scale baling for that matter.
