Case Study: HSM Baling Presses in use at Zumtobel Lighting GmbH

In the management of packaging material disposal within the assembly division for office and special lighting, Zumtobel Lighting GmbH has implemented a solution using two vertical baling presses from HSM, thereby enhancing material flow management. Specifically, Zumtobel opted to acquire the HSM V-Press 860 L baling press.

Instead of transporting the waste to cardboard palboxes, employees bring it in small containers to the two centrally positioned baling presses at the facility.

With a pressing power of 532 kilonewtons, the vertical HSM balers compact the cardboard into dense bales weighing approximately 450 kilograms. These compact bales are then transported to storage using forklifts.

The implementation of vertical baling presses has resulted in significant savings for the assembly division in terms of forklift trips, working hours, storage space, and palboxes. Additionally, the company has experienced increased profits. The paper factory pays a higher price per tonne of old cardboard packaging due to the compressed bales being recyclable without further processing.

Zumtobel Lighting GmbH has successfully reduced their costs by over 10,000 Euros per press per year. The investment in the two HSM V-Press 860 L presses is expected to yield a rapid return on investment.
