Meade Farms Case Study

CK International has installed the first CKSR16 for their customer Meade Farm based in County Meath, Ireland. When Meade Farm first approached CK International they were operating on an automatic channel press baler which struggled to meet dense bale weights for their cardboard, only achieving 280kg bales.  It was clear that this channel baler was not going to be sufficient to achieve the bale density that they now required. The automatic channel press baler required numerous maintenance call outs. With the increased downtime having a detrimental effect on production and material build up they knew a change was needed. In addition to the baler continually breaking down and affecting production, there was also a huge financial strain to keep fixing the issues. The safety measures in place were also highlighted as needs of improvement for the CKSR16. With the increased importance of workers’ safety within the industry, the customer required a machine that had immaculate safety features.

After analysing the correct model and solution within the engineering and product solution divisions, the CK team worked closely with Meade Farm to ensure their requirements were satisfied. Meade Farm had a previous third-party conveyor which was then integrated with the CKSR16 controls to increase safety features onsite and manage the material. The CKSR16 successfully handles a higher throughput for the customer. One of the customer’s key requirements in this project was to have improved throughputs. The throughput of 30T/week has been achieved as promised. Moreover, Meade Farm opted to use the cloud based CK Baler Performance Monitoring system. The customer can now alter the bale dimensions at the push of a button. They also have the capability of viewing the baler’s performance. It allows the plant manager to view how many bales have been processed on a daily, monthly or annual basis and highlights any downtime in the machine. This data is available on a web browser or mobile phone. In comparison to their previous machine, the CK Channel Baler is 4 times faster in production, allowing the customer to better place staff within the production floor when idle, increasing productivity. Having decreased the customer’s maintenance costs and downtime of their production line, CK have increased bale weights and their return on the cardboard commodity.

"We chose CK International because our last baler was at its end of life costing us a lot of money and CK were the most professional of those we tendered. The main objectives were to increase our cardboard throughput and inevitably our profit on the baled material. I would rate CK very highly with a response rate onsite of 24 hours. We asked for an additional safety feature on the hopper to avoid accidents and this was not an issue, with it being installed within a week of order."
Richie Sheehy, Project Manager, Meade Farm

A track record of success

How Re-Gen Waste Reduced their Ship Loading Time by up to 5 Hours

  • The client had recently won a new contract to supply SRF to a cement factory in Europe. They required a machine to produce heavy, high density bales which could be stacked 7 or 8 high in the dock and could be easily loaded on the ship.

How Attero made savings of €100,000 in one year

  • When the customer first approached us, they were operating a channel press baler. Wire was used to tie the bales, which was costly and time-consuming. The incineration process was contaminated with steel from the wire ties. As the wires also needed to be cut prior to incineration, this process was proving inefficient.

How we improved bale weights & increased productivity at a council waste facility

  • The council were operating a small Twin Ram baler which produced an American-style wide mouth bale. Once bales were loaded on the lorry the low bale weights meant the space was not optimised and lorry was below the required transport weight.
