FMW Plastic Bale Dewiring Solutions – Overview


Tackling the Plastic Bale Dewiring Challenge: FMW’s Efficient and Safe Solutions

Handling and processing plastic bales in recycling facilities can be a time-consuming and labor-intensive task. The dewiring process, in particular, presents a significant challenge. It involves the removal of wires that secure the bales, ensuring that the material can be further processed without any hindrances. Inefficient dewiring not only affects the overall productivity of a facility but also poses safety risks to workers. FMW, a leading Austrian engineering company, has developed two specialized solutions to help facilities overcome these challenges: the Wire Extractor and the Cross Wire Extractor (CWE).

The global waste recycling services market continues to grow, driven by increasing environmental awareness and consumer demand for sustainable practices. The market is estimated to reach a value of nearly $90 billion by 2028, with a forecast CAGR of 4.8% from 2021 to 2030. This growth highlights the importance of efficient and safe plastic bale handling solutions, such as the ones offered by FMW.
