pbOffice, a division of leading customer communications firm PBSA, will showcase a range of its automation solutions next month, at what promises to be another successful conference centred around waste management in Africa.

The continent’s largest and most prestigious waste management conference, WasteCon, kicks off next month, setting the stage for industry professionals from all sectors to participate in insightful debate and to share ideas around best practice sustainable waste management solutions.

Taking place under the auspices of The Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa, 2016 sees the flagship biennial conference taking place for the 23rd time, this year from 17 to 20 October, at Emperor’s Palace in Johannesburg, South Africa.

WasteCon’s extensive exhibition floor will showcase innovative products, new and old, that have contributed to – and continue to contribute to – the ever-changing face of waste management in Southern Africa.

pbOffice, as one of South Africa’s leading providers of office automation solutions, will be on hand to talk about its range of products – from baling solutions and how they can turn waste into valuable material, to three-phase shredding solutions, which enable businesses to comply with the all-important Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act.

WasteCon 2016 will play host to scores of educational and governmental delegates, as well as to interested members of the public, providing the opportunity to discuss the latest industry developments and trends from both South Africa and abroad.

pbOffice is proud to be a part of this social programme and to play a part in working towards improving waste management on the continent.

Turn waste into valuable material with pbOffice’s baling solutions

Perhaps one of the most underestimated cost centres for manufacturers and retailers in particular, is that of waste management. While packaging is essential for transporting products safely, it can very quickly become a problem as materials start to pile up and block valuable space – not to mention involve high personnel costs.

pbOffice, a division of PBSA (formerly Pitney Bowes SA), has an affordable and effective solution to this quandary – HSM Vertical Baling Presses.

Considered as part of the recycling chain, used packaging becomes a valuable secondary raw material. What pbOffice offers, are solutions for handling and compacting this raw material, using innovative technology.

HSM’s baling presses compress cardboard or packaging material into compact bales weighing up to 550 kg. This high degree of compression not only saves storage space, it also makes transport and handling much easier.

Conveniently sized, cost-efficient and high-capacity, HSM baling presses are perfectly suited for industry, manufacturers and retailers alike. Impressively, the volume of on-site packaging can be reduced by up to 95% with these machines.

Added advantages

The HSM V-Press series, currently available from pbOffice, combines the outstanding quality standards of HSM environmental technology with a high level of profitability. Due to both their performance and durability, they are the economic waste management solution par excellence.

In this series, you are sure to find the right baling press to suit your exact needs. For instance, you can choose the machine according to the volume and pressing power required for your operations.

The bales have the ideal size for perfect HGV (heavy goods vehicle) load utilisation. This saves on transport costs and increases the marketing efficiency of the bales, which – being valuable material – large disposal companies will purchase.

HSM baling presses could not be easier to use. The entire pressing cycle, beginning with closing the door, is fully automatic. A text display informs you in detail about the respective status of the process and, when the pressing procedure comes to an end, the sliding door opens automatically. Extracting the bale is simple and easy, and it can be comfortably transported on a pallet.

Another benefit of the presses is that of high operational flexibility. With the HSM V-Press you can decide whether you prefer to press cardboard or plastic film – all at the touch of a button.

Finally, you can rest assured HSM baling presses will deliver optimal process reliability. Thanks to the newly developed HSM TCS (TorsionControlSystem), the angle of the press ram is monitored continuously in every direction. This avoids one-sided overcharge, optimises the pressing procedure and assures longer service life.
