Baling wire comes in different forms, designs, and compositions. They’re specifically designed for a particular baling machine or purpose, which is why you need to consider your options carefully and choose the right baling wire for your needs. The strength and quality of the baling wire determines how securely it ties the bale. Weak and poor quality wires can come apart or break easily. You also need to make sure you choose the right baling wire for the baling machine you use. Here’s a guide that can help you find the right baling wire for your requirements.
Single Loop Bale Ties
This baling wire is often used in vertical balers. You need to feed the wire and tie it manually so you need to make sure you purchase good quality flexible wire. Single loop bale ties can be cut according to your length preferences so there’s little to no wastage of the wire material.
Black Annealed Box Wire
This wire has a thin coat of oil applied to it so it can move through the baling machine easily. The oil also protects the wire for wear and tear as well as rust. If you want a durable and good quality wire for your balers, you should consider black annealed. This wire might be a little more expensive than the other options, but it delivers in terms of performance.
Stem or Carrier Wires Galvanized
The wires are usually wrapped around carriers, stems, and used in two-ram balers. The carriers and stem wires are easy to use because you can feed the materials directly to the machine. They’re made from high-tensile wire so they’re very resilient and durable.
