The McHale Fusion 3 Plus integrated baler wrapper consists of an 18 roller fixed chamber baler and an integrated vertical wrapping ring. It uses film-on-film technology to apply film to the barrel of the bale in the bale chamber. The McHale Fusion 3 Plus is a fully automatic machine, controlled by the McHale iTouch Control Unit, and also has an inbuilt camera to monitor wrapper operation.
Patented Film Application
In the development of the McHale Fusion 3 Plus, McHale realised that changes in temperature and sunlight could affect the chamber wrapping film. In that, as the day got hotter or cooler, the film was either being overstretched or under stretched, and this in turn would cause reliability problems and result in inefficient film use. As a result McHale developed a patented application system which adjusts the breaking force on the roll of plastic in line with working conditions and allows for a continuously variable stretch, which can automatically adjust to changes in the day without the operator having to adjust any settings.
The McHale patented film application system ensures consistent film stretch, reliable film application, while delivering optimum bale shape and bale density. Should an operator wish to use net wrap for hay or straw this can be done with a simple adjustment.
Film-on-film technology refers to the application of film to the barrel of the bale in the bale chamber. The film binds the bale together as it passes from the baler to the bale wrapper, eliminating the need for string or net wrap. The film that binds the bale together forms a wrap layer and gives better film or plastic coverage on the largest surface of the bale.
