A305 baler for cardboard and plastic

The A305 is the third generation of Mil-tek pneumatic balers, featuring cutting-edge pneumatic technology that uses compressed air through the cylinder to press and release the pressing plate.

A double-acting cylinder increases the pressing cycle speed and force. Patented ECO-Drive technology efficiently distributes power to the pressing plate on the downward cycle and locks the plate in place to further compact the material. Compressed air is used to return the pressing plate on release.

Automated bale-out

A double-cycling cylinder increases the pressing cycle speed and eliminates the need for return springs. Patented ECODrive technology efficiently distributes power to the pressing plate on the downward cycle and locks the plate in place to further compact the material.

The A305 features a handy and safe auto-bale out mechanism. In accordance with EN16500 safety standards, the user stands to the side of the machine and activates a two-handed mechanism to release the bale. With a floorspace footprint of just 0.85m², the A305 is adaptable to most workplaces.
