Finnish bale wrapping and dewiring equipment manufacturer, Cross Wrap Oy, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Plastics Recycling Awards Europe 2020 for CW Dewiring machine in Recycling Machinery Innovation of the Year category.
The award winners will be announced on 26th of March, during the second day of the Plastics Recycling Show Europe taking place at RAI Amsterdam.
“This is a great honour for us to be shortlisted as a Recycling Machinery Innovation of the Year 2020. We are proud to present the automatic CW Dewiring, which is engineered to improve both safety and production rate in plastic recycling,” said Mr. Kalle Kivelä the founder of Cross Wrap Oy. “The traditional manual wire cutting does not meet safety standards in today’s world, and it neither comply with the production demands of modern plastic recycling operations. For these reasons, Cross Wrap has developed the new automatic and safe CW Dewiring technology.”
“Our CW Dewiring has been acquired by numerous advanced recycling companies, who have taken the next step in improving their operational safety and efficiency. We are delighted to hear and see good results from them accompanied by additional investments to Cross Wrap Dewiring machines,” he continued.
Kivelä added that he hopes that the publicity surrounding the recognition of the technology will raise awareness of its potential to improve safety in the recycling industry.
“We want to encourage the recyclers to consider automatic Dewiring, as it is the next big move forward to create safer and more productive plastic recycling operations. I am proud of our engineering team´s efforts in developing the CW Dewiring for the plastic recycling industry,” he concluded.
The CW Dewiring machine cuts, removes and coils the bale wires automatically. It is said to increase safety, production rate and lowers operation costs in plastic recycling.
The Plastics Recycling Awards Europe are organised jointly by Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE) and Crain Communications, organisers of the Plastics Recycling Show Europe. They are open to organizations and individuals across Europe, who are involved in the recycling of plastic materials.
