Cardboard shredder HKZ : 700/1100/1400

The reduction of transport costs, the reduction of the volume for feeding to existing press containers or balers as well as the shredding of the material for conveyor belt feeding are good reasons for the use of cardboard shredders. With the cardboard shredder HKZ, Hunkeler Systeme present a robust and absolutely process-reliable machine in several sizes.



Die Cut Waste Shredder SAZ

The Hunkeler SAZ die cut waste shredder shreds large-scale waste at the center breakout station of flatbed die cutters. The punching waste falls continuously through the feed chute, which is adapted to the production machine. These are crushed by the SAZ to a size of approx. 30 x 250mm. The shredded waste is taken over by the pneumatic conveyor system via a suction funnel. The shredder is on rollers and can be moved quickly and easily for set-up work on the punching machine.

Hunkeler Compact Air Cleaner HKU

Viruses and dust particles caused by movement, production processes and air circulation are a well-known and unavoidableproblem in industrial buildings. The Hunkeler Compact Aircleaner is a multi-filter system with the most modern air technology. It ensures improved air quality and optimal air hygiene in closed rooms. The Aircleaner is ISO 16890 certified. Pre-, main, and exhaust filters are supplied. The built-in fan with the most modern EC-technology has an effectivity of up to 90% and needs no maintenance. Thanks to electronic monitoring and easy operation, the filters can be changed quickly and easily.






Dust Briquetting

Dust-free prodcution increases the quality of your product. Ever-increasing requirements on production quality demands an efficient dust-removal process. As a result, higher product quality, less waste, lower cleaning and finally improved maintenance costs are the result of the dedusting process.

The hydraulic Hunkeler briquetting press is perfect suitable for the compression of  dry materials such as paper dust, plastic, confetti, etc. The high level of compression (1:10 up to 1:15, depends on the kind of material) is achieved without additional water and other materials. The feeding happens by means of a separate material silo, which is arranged between briquetting press and filter. The machine consists of a stable backing material with oil hydraulic pressing fixture, 3 operating cylinders (fill, press and jam), compression area with pressing jaws in high-quality steel and hardened plunger. Pump and motor unit with three-phase motor, oil tank, control block and hose connections. 




The paper dedusting unit PEM and I-PEM removes the paper dust which adheres to the paper-web and which would also foul the follow-on machines and digital printer. It works with compressed air. The micro particles are removed contact-free from the paperweb and are then collected in the exhaust air bin. If the speed of the web is low, the laminar flow is activated, which creates an optimal operation independent from the speed of the web. The sharp air jet takes off the dust from the surface like a planer. As a result of the process, the paperweb is cleaned on both sides in one process.






Extraction Systems

Hunkeler Systeme is your partner wherever production waste arises, such as edge trimmings, punching waste, dust and intermediate cuts, but also in the processing of foils, packaging and cardboard boxes. Our system solutions are proven in the graphics industry as well as in computing and data centers.

Press containers

In trade, commerce and restaurants, there is a lot of waste and packaging waste every day. Whether green waste, rubbish, paper or cardboard boxes, a modern container press helps to compress the garbage and prepare it for storage, transport and recycling. Efficient, powerful and safe presses save a lot of storage capacity and logistics costs. The containers can be loaded and transported immediately.

Different sizes and model variants available

Compact and space-saving versions also ensure high compression and a large capacity. Operation is simple, convenient and safe. Modern waste disposal technology is combined with proven working methods. The self-pressing containers are suitable for all conventional rolling vehicles. They can be set up flexibly and can be filled with a wide variety of residual and valuable materials. For residual waste, organic waste, cardboard, polystyrene, foil or plastic- All types of commercial waste can be perfectly pressed and compressed in the containers. Of particular note is the mobile usability of these containers. In contrast to stationary presses, they take up little space and can be set up wherever you need them. There are many areas of application for the presses. They can be operated efficiently and can be filled with all kinds of waste. The containers allow the sorting of recyclables and thus facilitate recycling. You reduce storage and disposal costs . Modern press containers are ideally suited for supermarkets, hospitals, old people’s homes, canteens, department stores, but also for trade and industry. Modernize your waste management with a container press.

Available container types:

  • Bulky waste press

  • Stationary screw compressors





To reduce the volume of waste and compress it by up to 95 percent, you need a high quality baler . Compression saves space and makes it easier to store and transport waste. An automatic or manual press offers decisive advantages for recycling .

Areas of application in waste disposal technology

Modern waste disposal technology can be used to produce a valuable secondary raw material that can be reused. Corresponding presses are available for cardboard, paper, styrofoam and pet, ie for those packaging and waste materials that are typically produced in retail.

Compacting in the recycling process

Compacting is a crucial prerequisite for the recycling process. Sorted waste and packaging materials are compressed to a degree of compaction of 1:20 . The presses are suitable for foils, cardboard boxes, cans, PET bottles and many other secondary raw materials.

Vertical & horizontal balers

A distinction is made between vertical and horizontal balers . The vertical models are characterized by high performance. They achieve strong baling pressure and allow bale weights of up to 500 kilograms. The horizontal models can be easily combined with a tilting device for waste containers. They are ideal for trade and industry. Bale weights of up to 700 kg are possible.



Air Cleaning & Filtration

A primary factor of corporate responsibility is employee health. With the recent pandemic, much emphasis is placed on respiratory health, and this is where Hunkeler System is offering significant improvements to the work environment. The major risk directly from production environments is manufacturing dust and fibers made from machinery with moving parts and materials of a powdery or fibrous nature, this includes inks & coatings, papers, cardboards & fabrics, as well as some metal and plastic work. These cause several serious respiratory ailments as well as skin and eye conditions.

The Hunkeler Compact Air Cleaner ‘HKA’ is a low cost, low footprint solution to a critical issue. It is a free-standing, portable unit that uses a standard 230V connection and is offered in a range of four sizes, suitable for small or large manufacturing spaces.
