The compact construction of the hydraulic unit is characterized by the installed, low-noise drives. The automatic on-demand pump circuit and the clearly arranged pipework save unnecessary energy and maintenance costs.
Highest-quality modern cylinder design – due to a completely bolted design without welds – eliminates fatigue fractures and metal fatigue at weld seams.

The economic channel bale press

Kadant PAAL' evergreen press is fitted with a horizontal tying system (PACOMAT II – III) or a vertical one (PACOMAT V). The robust, fully automatic channel bale press has been a fixture on the market for more than 30 years. Pressing forces of 350kN to 800kN generate very highly compressed bales. The PACOMAT range is ideal for various qualities of waste paper, cardboard, cartons, foils, PET and many other materials.


Press hopper

The PACOMAT press hopper is supplied with a secured plexiglass door.
The press hoppers of all the PACOMAT models can be chosen with a retractable perforator for perforating plastic bottles, which makes possible better compression.
The press hopper can be fitted with a folding chute or a fixed manual filling hopper for feeding by hand.


Pressure Plate

The central guide system developed by PAAL in conjunction with eight roller and the side guides ensure optimum pressure plate guidance with extremely low wear.
The patented piston rod wedge connection to easily uncouple the pressure plate considerably reduce the time and effort needed for maintenance.

The PACOMAT III can be supplied with a static pressure plate slot cover at the front to avoid material entering the needle slots.


Press Box

The well-engineered technology of this baler is accessible through secured doors on both sides. This means that it is easy to carry out maintenance work.
The press box of the PACOMAT is equipped with bolted highly wear-resistant steel floor plates.


Cutting System

The V-shaped cutting system ensures that lower cutting forces are used even with compact pressing material. Due to the cutting system with a relief-ground cutter beam, bales are produced with a flat surface that are easy to stack.
An additional cutting edge stamper removes material blockages.


Press Channel

The press channel is automatically controlled due to adaptation of the channel opening speed in the formula management system. A measuring wheel with two initiators generates exact bale measurements. The combination of versatile setting options allows the PACOMAT to generate highly compressed bales.



The PACOMAT I-III series balers are fitted with a horizontal wire tying system, whereas the PACOMAT V baler is supplied with a vertical one.
The integrated wire cutter on the fully automatic tying unit makes possible rapid tying.



The control cabinet is set up separately to keep possible oscillations or vibrations away from the press.

The electronic press controller is equipped with a user-friendly 7'' touch panel for formula management and display of a comprehensive range of functions and data.

The mechanical key safety system, which harmonizes with the current Machine Directive, ensures very high levels of safety.

To avoid damage by rodents, the cables on the baler are routed openly.

As an option, we can supply a connection from the baler to a computer, e.g. to allow you to evaluate production data in Excel.
