BTS Adjustable Bale Kicker

bk100-2717  Bale Kicker for transitioning vertical bales to horizontal

Custom built side gripper for boxes or bales

We manufacture and build a variety of machines here at BTS. When you are in the automation business, it is important that you are able to modify equipment to improve the process. In this case we designed and built a Bale Kicker to  transfer the rice hulls from vertical to horizontal.

All of this is part of a palletizer we are installing for a local company that makes fifty pound bales of rice hulls for wine making, absorption and many other things
