Lyndex Recycling puts the focus on new baler family and cloud diagnostics for unparalleled performance at IFAT 2018
Baler innovations for the plastics, paper and recycling industries - IFAT 2018, Munich, 14-18th May - Hall B5.534
Lyndex Recycling Systems, the UK's leader in the design, manufacture and supply of high volume balers and waste recycling machinery, will highlight an innovative range of powerful 2-Ram balers offering new levels of versatility and throughput for processing waste plastics, paper and other recyclates, together with the company’s cloud-based data logging and diagnostic solution at this year’s IFAT trade fair in Munich.
Designed in response to increasingly sophisticated segregation of material recycling fractions, the Lyndex Ram II is a medium range baling solution developed to work with multiple waste streams and equipped with a 16 material grade ‘recipe’ system to optimise bale production for different waste fractions.
Five machines variants are available offering a choice of size and footprint to suit different bale formats and with a main ram press force ranging from 80 to 160 tonnes to match different waste streams as well as volume, speed and throughput requirements.
The combination of advanced hydraulics operating at 4500 psi (315 bar), with energy efficient variable speed displacement pumps, helps to reduce the footprint of the machine compared to competing products, while delivering equivalent or increased press force and significantly improved cycle times, to improve productivity and throughput for today’s operators.
Doug Lord, sales manager at Lyndex Recycling Systems said: “While two-ram machines offer the highest compressive force, there is often a trade off in throughput. We have developed the Lyndex Ram II to provide a versatile baling solution for MRF operators, metal and plastic re-processors that delivers the compressive force of the two-ram design, but with cycle times similar to conventional channel balers. The new range will out-perform the ram speed and baling cycle time of any other two-ram balers of equal horsepower and offer a number of low maintenance design features, 16 pre-programmed baling modes and a range of Lyndex design options to suit most production environments.”
Lyndex will also showcase its latest cloud-based data logging and diagnostic solution, available on all Ram II balers, designed to provide customers with easy access to essential equipment data and new levels of capability to monitor, manage and control operations and performance via a smartphone, tablet or PC.
The online solution provides live real-time remote access to machine status and diagnostic information, including fault, service and inspection alerts, together with a range of production and operational data covering production figures, downtime, throughput, performance and other factors. These in turn can be exported for further analysis and reporting.
Information is presented through a series of management dashboards with graphical representations of equipment, colour coded with live data values, plus run-time graphs, counters and key statistics, enabling customers to visualise operations, understand performance and improve management and control.
“The system offers improved engineering support to our customers from day one, mobile access for total flexibility and a range of management and operational insights to drive performance and control. No other system offers this level of sophistication,” Doug Lord said.
Support and downtime issues are also significantly improved with the Lyndex Remote Assistance module a part of the package. This enables Lyndex engineering staff to connect directly to a customer’s machine to diagnose faults, with the ability to fix 95% of issues either by remotely changing settings on the machine, or by alerting the local operator to the issue.
With more accurate servicing based on logged hours and fewer maintenance visits, the system also provides a long term diagnostic tool to monitor equipment health and machine upgrades and settings can also be simply changed remotely to improve performance.
Fully configurable and already in use at 10 customer sites across Europe, the Lyndex Cloud Data Logging Solution is available as an option across the latest generation of mid to high-end balers including the Meggabite baler range.
