Customers and consultants were able to see our new ME2R150 Twin Ram Baler in action and discuss it’s capabilities with Middleton Engineering staff.
A guided tour of the operation based in Meare near Glastonbury, including engineering shops, fabrication areas, design office and parts warehouse.
Also provided a first-hand view of the high quality design and manufacturing carried out by our company which today supplies baling machinery across the UK to customers like The Co-operative, Biffa, Viridor and a number of local authorities.
With a press force of 150 tonnes the new machine is the first British designed and built Twin Ram Baler. By integrating a pre-press Middleton is providing operators with a powerful machine that combines the high throughput of a conventional channel baler with the superior compaction rates of a twin ram machine. This results in denser bales and lower costs for the industry.
In addition, this is the first machine to combine both wire and plastic tie capabilities in the same machine – the Dual Tying Head makes it very quick to switch from different waste streams such as cardboard, which requires wire ties, or RDF (Refuse-Derived Fuel) which utilises plastic.
We expect to run a series of open days throughout the year, so be sure to book your place today!
