On the move - new sorting plant opens in Hamm

Tönsmeier was founded about 90 years ago. Today the company operates throughout Europe. With more than 3,000 employees and a fleet of more than 1,100 special vehicles, Tönsmeier is committed to professional and up-to-date waste disposal. Everything is according to the motto - "We get the best out of it!“. Customers from industry, commerce, municipalities and private households do appreciate this and the wide range of environmental services offered. In the late summer Tönsmeier moved their Hamm (Germany) operation to a new recycling plant “Im Ostfelde”. Using the amplespace available Tönsmeier invested both in state-of-the-art buildings and facilities. Many different materials are accepted at the site and many fractions are sorted in the new sorting plant. Tönsmeier decided on a new channel baling press type KONTI 500 i-series to compact materials such as cardboard, paper, foil, PET, etc. This baler has a large number of additional options. The hydraulic power unit with two 55 kW drive units achieves a pressing force of 122 tons. The fully-automatic, high- throughput KONTI baler compresses the material at hand into heavy bales with a cross section of 1.1 x 1.1 m. The large bale size reduces wire and handling costs significantly. The powerful, modern pump technology ensures very low energy consumption.
