Introducing the baler
Bullpak balers are the new generation of high capacity vertical balers and compactors. Their robustness and power combined to efficiency and safety guarantee a top quality work.
Skimming through the user guide with apprentice.
Introducing the labels (how to read the information)
Go over the equipment in order to identify and explain labels. Training on equipment safety.
Step 1 – Cleanliness
Make sure the baler floor is clean. Broom (if need be) to thoroughly clean the baler. Put a flat piece of cardboard on the ground to avoid that compacting pieces between floor spaces block the metal wire path. Never enter the baler.
Step 2 – Loading
Close the ejection door. You can start loading the baler. Arrange the cardboard evenly.
Step 3 – Close the loading door
Press the "action" button. The ram will complete a full cycle - lower and raise - and the loading door will automatically open. You will then be able to add more material and repeat this step until the "action" button flashes.
Such flashing indicates that the ram is lowering for the last time before the bale is ready. Put a flat piece of cardboard on top, close the loading door and press the "action" button. The ram comes downward to lean on the bundle and remainsin this position.
The "action" status light stays on. The loading door remains closed. You can open the ejection door. The loading door will then automatically open.
Step 5– At this stage, you shall wear your gloves and safety glasses
Take a steel wire and insert it in the ram until it comes back from underneath. Join the two ends by twisting them together until the bundle is tight and all wires are even when the bale expands. (You will need 4 wires for cardboard and 6 wires for plastic). Then, removecardboard sitting on top of the ram.
Place a pallet in front of the baler, if equipped with the Bullpen option, and lower it. As you hold the "ejection" button, press and release the "action" button, then the green "ready" light will turn on. Press the "action" button again and hold it down. The bale will be ejected and the ram will resume to its original position. WARNING : KEEP PRESSING ON BOTH BUTTONS UNTIL THE LIGHT TURNS OFF AND THE ENGINE STOPS.
Broom the inside of the baler and resume to step 1.
Perform a rram full sequence of the ram to reset the ejection mechanism.
On top of knowing how to prepare a bale, the operator mustlearn aboutthe internal & external control panel configuration. They must be able to identify emergency situations, defect problems and be able to communicate them to resource professionals.
Here is the external control panel of a single baler.
"EMERGENCY STOP" BUTTON
What you should know is that at all times, whenever in doubt; the red button will help you to avoid accidents. By pressing this "Emergency Stop Button", it will interrupt the baler’s mechanical operations. Once triggered, such button remains activated until it is rotated 1/4 of a turn and then pulled out to resume to its original position. Once pulled out, it can be switched to ON or OFF.
This button activates the baler and the orange light will also transmit information. A flash means that the ram is performing its last cycle. When it no longer flashes and simply remains on, the bale is ready to be tied and ejected. To manually generate a bale, press the "action" button, release it, and then hold it until the light turns on.
Upon release of the "action" button, a 0.5-sec. pulse means that the "action" button is properly activated and the alarm is OFF.
A flash (1 second ON / 2 seconds OFF) indicates that the baler model is not properly set up and cannot operate.
Following a power failure, the system will show the baler operating mode by 3 ‘‘1-second’’ pulses (plastic mode) and 6 ‘‘1-second’’ pulses (cardboard mode).
This button is used to eject a bale. Press this button simultaneously with the "action" button. While holding both buttons down, the ram will resume in an upward position and the bale will be ejected.
THE GREEN "BALE READY" STATUS LIGHT
When the green light is on, it indicates that the security relay is rearmed and the system is secure. When such light is off, it shows a security system violation. There will be 8 different flash types.
