Design and fabricate a baling system that could process 45 gallon steel drums from an automatic washing line at a minimum rate of two drums per minute..
- Designing a receiving system that could keep pace with the drum wash line conveyor.
- Creating a uniform bale with a minimum of 65 drums in each baler.
- Creating an ejection system that would enable the operator to remove the completed bale with a standard lift truck. The bale must be clear of the baling chamber so as to eliminate the possibility of the lift truck coming into contact with the baling press.
- Ensuring that baler panel can communicate directly with the conveyor panel to ensure the conveyor will shut down in the event that the baler went off-line.
