A European body called CEN (the European Committee for Standardization), together with key players in the vertical baler marketing have, over several years, developed a new set of safety standards by which vertical balers should comply.
These new regulations are designed to protect end users from harm and minimize their risk where possible, and therefore include regulations around the pressing plate, bale chamber, the bale ejection process, the control actuators, emergency stop systems, noise reduction, instruction manuals and labels; essentially, any and all potential hazards a user could face while operating the machine.
As a result, Mil-tek's vertical balers have all undergone updates to in accordance with these standards.
|102 Baler||2102 Baler|
|205/205TS Baler||2205 Baler|
|305 Baler||2305 Baler|
|306/306HD Baler||2306 Baler|
|509/509HD Baler||2509 Baler|
|101 Can Press*||2101 Can Press|
*The 101 Can Press is not classified as a baler, but has been similarly upgraded
EN16500 is a European Safety Standard. We at Mil-tek are committed to safety. We firmly believe that the changes to our machines represent improvements made in every respect, and as such ceased producing balers that were not EN16500 compliant.
Mil-tek have been manufacturing Balers and Compactors since 1992 and have been at the forefront of compliance and proactivity in improving health and safety standards since this time. We intend to continue this tradition.
Mil-tek machines are driven by compressed air rather than any form of electricity.
As a result, the lockout switch serves to cut off the source of compressed air while simultaneously releasing the pressing plate.
Furthermore, the lockout switch can be locked in place to prevent accidental activation.
