 Meade Farm to ensure their requirements were satisfied. Meade Farm had a previous third-party conveyor which was then integrated with the CKSR16 controls to increase safety features onsite and manage the material. The CKSR16 successfully handles a higher throughput for the customer. One of the customer’s key requirements in this project was to have improved throughputs. The throughput of 30T/week has been achieved as promised. Moreover, Meade Farm opted to use the cloud based CK Baler Performance Monitoring system. The customer can now alter the bale dimensions at the push of a button. They also have the capability of viewing the baler’s performance. It allows the plant manager to view how many bales have been processed on a daily, monthly, or annual basis and highlights any downtime in the machine. This data is available on a web browser or mobile phone. In comparison to their previous machine, the CK Channel Baler is 4 times faster in production, allowing the customer to better place staff within the production floor when idle, increasing productivity. Having decreased the customer’s maintenance costs and downtime of their production line, CK have increased bale weights and their return on the cardboard commodity.
Richie Sheehy, Project Manager at Meade Farm commented, “we chose CK International because our last baler was at its end of life costing us a lot of money and CK were the most professional of those we tendered. The main objectives were to increase our cardboard throughput and inevitably our profit on the baled material. I would rate CK very highly with a response rate onsite of 24 hours. We asked for an additional safety feature on the hopper to avoid accidents and this was not an issue, with it being installed within a week of order.”
