LFA CB – Clothing Baler
The LFA CB is our lifting chamber, vertical clothing baler. It is an ideal baler for creating small, bagged textile bales. They are very easy to lift and are often shipped overseas. The lifting chamber baler gives the ability to use a variety of different plastic/woven bags and sheets along with a variety of different tying materials like rope, nylon twine, metal wire or polypropylene strapping.
Boasting a whopping 30 tonne force, it creates extremely dense bales therefore maximising payloads in skip containers, articulated lorries or shipping containers. The baler gives you the option to tie the bale off at the desired weight, often between 40-80kg. The 48 second cycle time and easy tying operation gives the potential of creating 8-10 bales per hour.
Larger models are available on enquiry which produces bales up to 600kg.

The LFA CB is very easy to use.
Step 1 – Setup
When first using the baler, with the lifting chamber in its ‘up’ position, attach a bag or sack to the bottom of the chamber. Whilst holding the bag in place, press the ‘down’ button to move the lifting chamber to its bottom position ready for material to be fed.
Step 2 – Feeding
This step is straight forward – Open the top feed door and throw all the textile material into the chamber, making sure you spread the load evenly. Close the feed door and press the green ‘go’ button. The plate will automatically run a full cycle compacting all of the material into the bottom of the chamber. The plate then returns to its resting position ready for the next load. Continue this until you have created the size of bale you require.
Step 3 – Tying off the bale
With the plate in its resting position at the top of the chamber, open the feed door and attach a bag to the compaction plate. Press the down button to compact the material and for the plate to stay down. Press the lifting chamber ‘up’ button and the lifting chamber will move up to reveal the material under compaction. Wrap the bag around the bale ready for tying off. Feed the twines through the slots under the bale, around the back of the bale and through the slots in the press plate. Tie off the twine and repeat this for the 3 other twines. Then repeat this on the side of the bale with two twines. Press the ‘up’ button for the compaction cylinder to release the material and you have a bale weighing 40-80kg bagged and strapped ready to be moved into storage.
As simple as that! It probably takes longer to read the operation than to implement it. As part of the package, one of our trusty engineers will come to site and show the team how to do this in person. Training certification can be supplied if required.
*Note – Refurbished models may vary in its operation slightly, but the principle will remain very similar.
