E9700 Tying Machine

0 out of 5

The model 9700 Tying Machine is all-electric. All functions are AC gear motor driven using AC Vector Drive technology. The 9700 includes automatic waste wire coiling for disposal, high capacity accumulator and automatic threading after a coil change.


Ovalmatic 9700 Wire Tying Machine offers the following features and benefits:

  • Drives: All functions are gearmotor driven using AC vector drives; no hydraulic oil clean-up or environmental concerns.
  • Direct Drive: All gearmotors are mounted directly to their drive shafts; no belts, chain, couplers or other wear components are used in the drive system.
  • AC Vector Drives: Closed loop AC Vector drives ensure controlled acceleration, smooth operation and less wear on all moving components.

  • Accumulator: Gearmotor driven Rotating Disk Accumulator ensures controlled, high speed wire management virtually eliminating buckles and jams.
  • Twister: All twisting functions are driven by main-shaft mounted cams and drive gear ensuring the Twister cycle is repeatable and can never be “out of time”
  • Wire Threading: Inserting wire at the entry point starts the automatic wire threading sequence; no doors or guards are required to be open.
  • Re-Feed: If the feed cycle is not completed, wire is automatically drawn back and another feed attempt is made.
  • Wire Clearing: Expels waste wire, when the wire supply is depleted, by forming the wire into a small disposable coil.
  • Track: Time proven low friction track design partnered with Ovalmatic Quality Wire eliminates the need for wire lubrication resulting in contaminate free pulp bales.
  • PLC Control: On-board PLC control manages time critical functions and allows the Tying Machine to be independently operated in maintenance areas.
  • HMI: Combines operator controls, machine data, diagnostics and maintenance functions into an organized, menu driven, machine control interface.
  • Portability: Quick disconnects (power, interlocks, air) and large diameter casters ensure portability for maintenance operations.

Ovalmatic 9700 Conveyors offer the following features and benefits:

  • Drives: Conveyor gearmotors are mounted directly to the drive shafts; no belts, chain or couplers are used in the drive system.
  • Adjustable: Conveyor chains are laterally adjustable allowing conveyor chain positions to be adjusted for the bale width.
  • Bale Switches: Unlike photocells which can be fouled by pulp dust, the 9700 conveyor uses a spring-loaded roller and proximity sensor to provide positive bale position.
