Bale cutting

Before being added to the mixer the rubber may need to be cut into small pieces on a bale cutter or guillotine. These are usually down stroking machines, which should be securely fenced with interlocking access gates. Feed openings/tunnels should also meet safety reach distances.
The standard bale cutter is designed for 33.3kg bales. These are by far the most common machine but some of the larger old type shown below may still be in use. The standard 33.3kg bale can be fed directly into most larger rubber mixers but this small bale cutter is required to get the correct weight for the compound recipe.
