The Frontier Industrial Dewiring System is a unique, automated process
The Frontier Industrial Dewiring System is a unique, automated process for removing wire from bales and processing it into saleable scrap. The patented machine consists of an integral table conveyor system which advances tied bales without interruption through an overhead cutting head assembly and across a table top dewiring mechanism, moving the loose material on to further processing. The cutting head assembly progressively slices through the top of tied bales engaging and cutting each wire as the bale advances. Concurrently, the dewiring mechanism engages and pulls each wire downward through a chopper unit, which process the wire into convenient lengths for recycling.
The machine will accommodate various sizes of bales with the articulated overhead cutting assembly seeking the top of each individual bale automatically. The machine, with bale wire orientated perpendicular to direction of travel, has the capacity to process an average of two bales per minute. With properly formed bales a wire removable efficiency of approximately 95% or better is obtainable.
Presently most bale wires are still cut manually with a plier type wire cutter. The industry has long sought a simple machine that really works. The Frontier Model BDS-2000 bale management system provides hands-off, automatic processing of baled materials eliminating the need of a wire cutter person and his propensity for injury. Its focus is safety while enhancing the mill's productivity, quality and efficiency.
