Hi-X control systemDisplay Unit Hi X Compactor

The Hi-X control system is the new generation of electronics and control units. Together with a new hydraulic system with proportional valves, it gives you major advantages.

Easy to use

Intuitive pictures and touch screen makes it easy to understand and run the machine. The symbols and pictures overcome language barriers and give few potential operator errors. Wide viewing angles and high brightness offer good readability also in direct sunlight.

Better control

As the machine runs automatically you can at all times see what is going on. You may choose to control and adjust it for your specific needs, as all functions can be controlled from the display.

Optimize the processes

The machine comes with several programs as factory presets for different materials. In addition you can make your own adjustments and save them as different baling programs. E.g. You may store one set of setting for baling a wet material, and one for the material when dry. The better control enables optimization of settings and therefore higher efficiency.

Robust and reliable

The electronics hardware is developed by EPEC, Finland, for heavy industries like mining and forestry, and is reliable in any condition. In a tight aluminum housing the screen is waterproof, totally dust tight and endures cold, heat, vibration, moisture and impacts.

Wide film Wrapping

To achieve the best possible bales it is vital not to compromise regarding packaging. Orkel Compactors do the wrapping in two processes. Initially, the bales are wrapped in wide film to allow the bales to maintain their shape and density. An air pressure cleaning system ensures high quality operation at all times as well as simplifies maintenance. Finally, the bale is wrapped in stretch-film. A predefined number of layers of film seals the material in a compact bale on the wrapping table, maximizing the storage and handling potential.

Orkel recommend our own branded polyethylene plastic film that comes in a variety of dimensions and models, developed by a leading global producer.
