Presona LP80 VHK/2

This rare Presona baler is perfect for the processing of plastics as it comes with both vertical and horizontal tying needles. It is in incredibly good condition and has been well maintained, Presona have made at least two service visits each year.

This baler was manufactured in 2012 but has seen very little work. It has been in operation for a total of 4000 hours. This is light work when considering we expect a machine of this type to be used for at least 2000 hours per year. Despite its low operating times, it still managed to process 280 million PET bottles during 2018!


The two images above show the baler in its current factory in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Here you can see the vertical and horizontal tying needles that are used to secure the bale. The cross-tie system is ideal for materials with high elastic memories such as plastics.
