Balers with single compression

Feeding hopper suitable for all operation needs

The P1C balers can be delivered with a specific feeding hopper ensuring a loading of the materials by means of a grab or a bucket loader.

They can alternatively be integrated into the waste sorting process. In this configuration feeding of materials is made by means of a belt conveyor which might receive a magnetic separator. In this case, the standard feeding hopper is used.

Low noise

Sound emissions will never exceed 80 dB (A) wherever the operator will be.

 The equivalent sound level values measured at the various working places are:

  • 79 dB (A) in front of the electrical switch cabinet
  • 78 dB (A) in front of the machine, where processed bales are discharged
Solidity and durability
  • Solid welded construction design
  • High-strength wear plates cover all parts of the machine coming into contact with the scrap
  • Grooved wear plates allows to process any kind of materials avoiding risk of jamming


Easy operation and minimized maintenance costs
  • Fully automatic operation
  • HMI interface through intuitive touch screen providing easy access to production parameters and operational data:
    • Length, final pressure and density of bales adjustable
    • Preventive maintenance interventions optimized as all necessary checks can be made using the touch screen
  • Precise positioning of the compression units by means of analogic sensors
  • Minimized wear ensured by lubrication system in the compression chamber
  • Teleservice via modem


Safety operation

All dangerous areas are protected by means of fences in compliance with the current safety rules and regulations.

The protection zones are defined to make cleaning and maintenance operations easier and have one access door controlled by an approved safety switch.

All emergency stops push-buttons are brought together on the safety module installed on the electrical switch cabinet of the baling press. Any using of an emergency push-button will stop immediately all equipments of the baling station.

The control desk integrates a safety key.


The P1C baling presses are used to compact household metal waste and industrial metal waste into high density bales conforming to the requirements of steel making plants and foundries

The scrap metal balers with single compression have automatic operating cycle and continuous feeding by means of a grab or a conveyor. COPEX baling presses provide the optimal solution for the professionals of industries and scrap metal recycling.

The balers type P1C can be installed indoor and outdoor and do not require any specific foundations. 

COPEX proposes for his entire range models with shearing blades (P1CV) and lid (P1CC) to cover all possible applications.
