The Mil-tek 2306 is a medium to large sized baler that can fit into most locations. The deep pressing chamber and the wide door opening makes the Mil-tek 2306 an ideal solution for companies and organisations with medium-to-large amounts of waste but with a limited amount of floor space.
The 2306 baler is ideal for loading whole cardboard boxes, eliminating the need for flat packing and regular trips to outside bins/skips. The cardboard bales from the baler fit perfectly onto a standard pallet, making them easy to store and transport.
Miltek machines are designed so that almost anyone can operate them: You simply put in your material, close the door, pull the handle and let the machine do the real work. Mil-tek machines have an extremely fast pressing cycle of 8-14 seconds.
As with all Mil-tek machines, the 2306 baler is powered by compressed air. This can be supplied directly from an existing air line, minimizing the cost and energy usage of the machine. Patented ECODrive technology moderates the energy used so that the machine uses less power initially, and gradually scales up.
In addition, pneumatic technology locks the pressing plate in place, allowing the machine to further compact waste without further use energy. This means that the 2306 baler is free of both electrical and hydraulic components, is very economical and extremely low cost to run.
The new two-handed bale-out feature ensures the user can safely and automatically empty the bale onto a standard Euro pallet.
A Mil-tek technician will guide you through installation, which is done by simply connecting your 2306 baler to a compressed air supply. You are now ready to start minimizing your waste.
Fill the chamber with whole cardboard boxes (top down) or loose plastic and close the door. Close the door and activate via the black lever. Repeat this process until the Bale Out indicator stays red (>20 secs).
When the baler is ready to be emptied, tie the bale using the banding, open the lower door and press the Bale Out button to release the bale. You are now ready to start a new bale!
Yes it is. Over the past number of years Mil-tek have been a part of a Health and Safety Executive committee that has been committed to creating new improved standards for the safe use of vertical balers.
As a result we have made a significant number of improvements and additions to the 2306 including a new door system that prevents access to moving parts, a cycle counter and two-handed bale-out feature.

Your internal working processes and the data available on your waste streams will provide you with that answer. Together with Mil-tek, we will ensure you find the optimal spot in your workplace.
The machine can stand either indoors or out - most important is that you place the machine so that you sort your waste at source. If you place the machine outside it must be under a roof. Be aware that cold weather conditions can influence the performance of the machine. Your Mil-tek consultant will help analysing the best place to install the machine.
As they are air-powered (pneumatic) rather than hydraulic, Mil-tek balers are extremely quiet. If you have an existing air-line you simply plug the machine and then your existing compressor acts as the engine. If you need to have a compressor installed, a Mil-tek technician will ensure that the compressor is placed at a distance from the machine and then install an air-hose between the compressor and the machine.
Wilts Wholesale is a wholesaler of electrical supplies and equipment in the UK. A Mil-tek 2306 has overseen significant annual savings on their waste costs.
Breadwinner is an Australian catering and sandwich firm. They chose a Mil-tek baler for the financial benefits, its flexibility and usability.
Pinguin are one of Europe's largest frozen vegetable manufactures. The introduction of a Mil-tek 306 baler has seen significant improvements in their waste cost, logistics and hygiene.
Ideal for baling plastic packaging typically used in the transportation and protection of clothing and consumable items. Constant pressure ensures an extremely dense bale is produced that is both easy to handle and easy to recycle. The baler can also be used to recycle smaller volumes of cardboard in small/medium supermarkets, convenience stores and general retail outlets.
The wide door and deep chamber of the Mil-tek 2306 baler means large volumes of cardboard can be baled without the need for breaking down or flat packing. Plastic packaging stored in Mil-tek plastic bag stands can be placed directly into the baler saving time and therefore cost when dealing with packaging waste.
The modern waste technique of segregating and baling packaging waste using strategically placed recycling points has resulted in a significant increase in productivity across a range of organisations. A Mil-tek 2306 baler accompanied by a small plastic baler (such as a model 2102 or 2205 baler), and strategically placed plastic bag stand can vastly improve logistics where a steady stream of packaging waste is created in multiple areas.
