Textile Bale breaker

02 Apr 2024

A fabulous install of a KME textile bale breaker with metal detection and auto reject. Our customer wanted a solution to improve production throughput and performance with maximum safety for staff.

We recently invested in a Ken Mills textile automatic bale breaker and could not be happier with the results.  From start to finish, Adam and his team were a pleasure to work with.  Design of the machine to working with the install engineers, the process was seamless.   The bale breaker has not only helped us increase our production output, but has also allowed us to improve the efficiency and overall safety of our production process.  This bale breaker is truly designed to efficiently separate out material prior to packaging with little required added labor.   We look forward to working with Ken Mills again in the future! 

Previous machinery replaced by KME

The textile recycling firm already had a solution in place for breaking apart their bales. Unfortunately this was a cheap & poorly manufactured copy of our breaker and was not up to the job.

It was also very dangerous for the operative who had to lean over an open chain belt & feather out the textiles as they passed to ensure an even feed.

The KME systems eliminate the need for staff to put themselves in harms way and can be operated safely by one person. It has maximised their material throughput and increased their production.

There might be a temptation to buy cheaper machinery to reduce purchasing costs but choosing quality over price will ultimately improve efficiency and save you money in the long run.
