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


multiple languages

The control system is delivered with a set of different languges to make it easy to operate. In the settings is it possible to choose the prefered language or add any other language as well.


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.
