Metauro adds that while two-ram balers are also available with automatic operation, they are not as simple to run as the horizontal Macpresse because jamming and wire-tying problems occur more frequently.
Not only does the Macpresse baler cut down on the number of shifts Metro needs to run and the amount of labor needed per shift, it enables Metro to handle more business, Metauro says.
