Mac awarded UL (USA) certification
Mac receives UL certification for the manufacture of electrical enclosures in accordance with standards laid down by American directives.
Macpresse receives UL (Underwriters Laboratory) certification for being able to manufacture electrical enclosures in accordance with American directives. This is additional evidence of the investment Mac is making in the field of research and development.
Mac has been in the North American market for over 20 years, despite it having different standards to those adopted in Europe.
More specifically, the production of control panels must meet the relevant safety standards before they can be sold in North America. To this end, Macpresse has achieved conformity according to the standards in force by using only UL-certified components in their production.
The procedure for exporting UL systems to the North American market is very strict. It involves a go/no-go assessment by the European representative for UL certification who will only issue the permit once it has been ascertained that all certification rules have been met.
Through its personnel specialized in UL standards, Mac will personally deal with any critical issues when it comes to the system's repair.
New Mac wrapping machine, the product of collaboration with PTF Hauser
Mac, in collaboration with German firm PTF Hauser, develops and produces a wrapping machine capable of baling polymers and storing difficult materials.
Macpresse, in collaboration with German firm PTF Hauser, designs and develops a wrapping machine for baling polymers and storing difficult materials, like hard plastics. Using this techniques, bales are wrapped on just 4 sides of the bale.
Only the actual operator knows the real limits and critical aspects that face presses in baling polymers coming from source-separated waste.
Using the wrapping machine does away with the need for a baler with cross binding since, instead of the additional 5 baling wires, the bale is automatically wrapped with a film that comes straight out of the back pressure channel.
Cross-binding machines entail additional costs due to the need for strict supervision by personnel, without counting the maintenance costs incurred since the machines are never 100% functional.
The use of film instead of additional baling wire results in a considerable reduction in costs as well as the opportunity to keep the site clean during the various stages of wrapping, storing and loading containers.
New binding system
Mac develops a new binding system, the only one of its kind in terms of strength and simplicity.
Macpresse develops a new binding system that allows for the use of up to 10 baling wires.
This result is achieved thanks to the advantages of the Mac binding machine, which is unique to the market in terms of strength and simplicity.
This is a system used to bale special materials requiring binding and is designed to handle the materials' variations in volume in an extremely flexible manner. In most cases, breaking is inevitable with standard binding, meaning the whole bale needs to be redone.
The new binding system allows for the use of 10 horizontal baling wires measuring 2.5 mm in diameter. The binding machine has been strengthened considerably so that it can cut and tie up to 10 baling wires at the same time with the operator in charge of the baler required to do much less work.
Heading: 600-ton plant delivered in Russia
Mac announces the completion of the Sochi CSI mega-plant for the treatment of 600 tons of municipal solid waste in 8 hours of operation.
The Moscow Show opens with the announcement that work has finished on the Sochi CSI plant, which will be able to treat over 600 tons of municipal waste in 8 hours of operation.
Macpresse thus consolidates further its presence in this market, which dates backs to 1989. This is a country in which it now has 30 plants operating!
The primary purpose of the Sochi project is to extract recyclable materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill since they are part of the municipal solid waste
stream.More specifically, the plant has been designed to sort large daily amounts of PET bottles, wastepaper, and aluminium and iron cans. All the remaining solid waste, minus the recyclable materials, is then baled by compressing the waste from its original 250 kg/m³ to over 950 kg/m³ (3 times its original weight!). These figures mean the capacity of the landfill is increased by over 3 times, which also results in the considerable optimization of the costs of transporting waste from the transfer station.
Sochi is a city with a high rate of tourism and sees its population swell during high season to more than 4 times its normal size, meaning the volume of waste also increases fourfold.
The solution designed and produced by Macpresse thus offers Sochi the best solution for the optimized and ecological management of its waste.
