A baler can now be produced in less than 24 hours

08 Oktober 2020

Bramidan had a vision that we could produce a vertical baler in less than 24 hours. Now we are able to do that. An investment in a new factory plant for pre-treatment and powder coating with robots has made it possible. At the same time, the powder coating gives the balers a much stronger surface.


  • doneFaster production of a vertical baler, less than 24 hours
  • doneMuch more environmentally friendly process, no solvents
  • doneWater consumption reduced with 90%.
  • donePowder coating makes the baler surface much stronger.


With the new plant for pre-treatment and powder coating, we can manufacture a baler in less than 24 hours. At the same time, we have a much more environmentally friendly pre-treatment and powder coating process, which is in line with our other work towards the Suistainable Development Goals.

Smart suspension, efficient pre-treatment
and VR-programmed powder coating

The factory plant's success is, among other things, depending on a careful preparation with correct suspension of the machine parts, efficient cleaning and not least a meticulous VR programming of the powder coating robots. Without this, the savings and the results obtained would not be present.

The graphical overview shows the process that the baler parts go through in the pre-treatment and robot coating system, right from the start with suspension, pre-treatment and powder coating to the end with cooling and dismantling. The painted items continue on a conveyor belt into the assembly area and quality control.

After suspension, the products have a pre-treatment of 3 steps: degreasing, rinsing with demineralized water and a chemical surface treatment.

It is very important that the machines are hung up correctly from the very beginning, to avoid problems later in the robot section.

Programming of the robots takes place with Virtual Reality. A subsequent test with simulation prevents errors before the robots start their powder coating.

The powder coating gives the balers a much more resistant surface than the traditional wet coating.

The powder coating robots can quickly change color. A color change takes approx. one minute. It is extremely time-saving and makes production planning more flexible.

In the powder kitchen we handle the powder. The usual colors for Bramidan balers are yellow and dark gray, which are delivered in 400 kilo sacks.

The products are "baked" inside the curing oven at 200 degrees for one hour. Next, they dry the cooling zone.

After the baler has been taken down from the boom, it is placed on a conveyor for transport to the finishing line and quality control, before leaving the factory.

and powder coating is much more
environmentally friendly.
