Tie Cycle

An integral part of the Bale Band-It, the Tie Cycle consistently cuts and seals the strap, providing a dependable sealing solution.

Model 200 design is significantly superior.

 New design eliminates carriage derailing possibilities by:

  • Fetcher Swing’s dovetail slide design provides positive sensor activation
  • Carriage’s V-Slide UHMW design greatly increases surface area for force to transfer over, while eliminating V groove rollers.
  • Repositioned the stop and greatly increased clearance between fetcher and rails.
  • Reduced pressure to fetcher cylinder during extend & retract.

Back Gate Slides

 

 

Back Gate Slides provide smooth telescoping operation:

  • Keeping drag down and yielding evenly compressed bundles.
  • UHMW Slides provide a long term smooth wearing solution.

Compression Zones

Compression Grooves are critical in making and  keeping tight packages.  Exclusive to the Bale Band-It.

Compression Groove Definition:

3″ deep grooves that are compressed into both the top and bottom of the bundle.

What it accomplishes:

    • Creates an ultra dense surface for the steel strapping to be placed against.
    • In these grooves strapping is 12″ shorter than the outside dimensions of the bundle.

Benefits to you and your customers:

    • Unparalleled bundle quality.
      • Superior package rigidity
      • Self supporting
      • Stable stacks
    • Solid packages can take more abuse, load quicker, stack higher, more secure shipping, with less tie downs than other methods.
    • Even after the hay shrinks and many handlings later you have a package that is solid and easy to move.
    • Easily use pallet forks or other standard attachments.
      • 3” grooves provide ample room to get under bundles and to separate bundles on top of bundles.
