6.1 In general
For further information on the subject refer to Appendix 3
The single chamber press EK700 or single chamber press EK800 will be filled with sorted material. After the pressing, holding-down clamps prevent an expansion of the compressed material. After reaching the maximum pressing force of 40 kN / 60 kN, the making of the bale is finished. With the door open, the pressure ran can be lifted up via the two-hand trip guard, the operator thus standing left of the machine.
6.2 Description of the machine components
6.2.1 Pressing chamber
Base frame out of solid welded steel plate
A squared tube guidance take over the occurring forces. The tubes are guided itself in bearings out of high strength synthetic material
2 holding- down clamps swinging out in the pressing chamber door and to in the back wall prevent a material expansion after pressing, this guarantees a large loading chamber
For opening the pressing chamber door, the filler flap has to be opened first. In addition the door lock of the pressing chamber is secured by a spring loaded catch.
The sensor of the magnet switch on the machine frame protects the filling flap during the pressing cycle. If the flap will be opened, the machine shuts off its cycle.
The pressing force will be transferred via a hydraulic cylinder to the pressure ram.
