Markets We Serve

Box Plant Balers

The generation of corrugated scrap and how to handle it has been an issue since the first corrugated box was made. American Baler is a leader in its design and engineering for this industry. From the early designs of our box plant balers (early 50’s) thru the 70’s and 80’s with our 10,000, 12,000 and 13,000 series to our current PAC and 29N designs we have been an industry leader.

The PAC baler with three different hopper sizes was designed to handle light trim and shredded material producing export quality bales. The 29N series was engineered to handle heavier board trim and shredded materials and is available with or without a shear blade.

Our Box Plant Balers That Apply To This Market Include

  • PAC Series
  • 29N Series
  • 42W Series

Waste Baler for Printers / Converters

For years Printers / Converters have been baling shreds, edge trim, signatures, slab waste, tissue logs and cookies, and other grades and American Baler has manufactured waste balers for each application. The PAC series balers are used for light trim and shredded OCC and paper. Our 29N and 42W Series balers handle these Printers / Converters grades with additional ram force and larger feed openings. For low volume Printers / Converters the manual tie PW3560 and W409D auto-tie two ram baler are ideal while high volume Printers / Converters may want to look at the 43HS Series.
