New Konti & Likon Ranges Launched



Dicom are delighted to be able to offer the new Konti and Likon ‘H’ ranges of channel balers. These new machine ranges are the product of the PAALGROUP’s strategy of structured development in which the PAAL technical resource is focused entirely on the design and development of genuinely new balers. As a consequence, it is widely recognised that the PAAL equipment is the most technically advanced in the market. PAALGROUP’s strategy is in stark contrast to most competitors who employ their technical resource to develop bespoke ‘solutions’ and then to firefight when things (invariably) go wrong. Not only can PAALGROUP customers benefit from the introduction of new product ranges on a systematic basis, but they can be confident that whatever machine (+ options) is selected, everything has been properly engineered and tested and will satisfy the most up to date safety regulations.


Note : Other colour schemes are available !

The design focus with the new ‘H’ range of Konti and Likon balers has been on energy efficiency in order to keep operating costs down to a minimum. These new features include :

1. New high efficiency piston pumps which enable a smaller motor to generate a higher output. For example, the new 55kW piston pump generates a higher output than the old 75kW gear pump.

2. Both the cutting knife and the stamper have been fundamentally re-designed in order to improve the flow of material.

3. Precise bale length measuring system, enabling more consistent bale lengths to be achieved.

The result of these various design improvements is to reduce power consumption whilst simultaneously increasing throughputs and bale weights. Although this seems almost too good to be true, it is recognised in the industry that Dicom never over-promise. Indeed, our approach is to under-promise and over-deliver so if performance data is given, customers can be confident that these levels will be achieved in practice.

Over the last 34 years, Dicom Limited has become the UK`s leading manufacturer and supplier of static and portable waste compactors. The waste compactors are designed and developed for durability, high performance and ease of operation. This is important to organisations wishing to reduce the frequency and cost of waste collections or where space and hygiene are important factors. This is achieved by significantly reducing the ratio of waste from its original volume. Dependent upon the type of material, a Dicom waste compactor can reduce the waste volume by a ratio of 4:1. This ensures that maximum payloads are achieved with each container. Dicom's portable waste compactors can be supplied with several standard options, such as: liquid retentive seals to prevent food waste leakage, bin lifting equipment for lug and comb type waste containers, choice of standard hopper – open splayed, enclosed, dock loading. The static compactors are also available with a range of hopper options and tipping mechanisms and are available in a range of sizes to suit all volumes. Our equipment can be seen working in almost any industry including manufacturing, retail, leisure, hospitals, restaurants, food production, HM Forces, transport, schools & colleges, warehousing and is often used by waste and recycling contractors to process materials such as cardboard, plastics, food and general waste. Our products meet a range of wide and varied requirements, including the latest health and safety standards, and we offer a range of payment options from outright purchase, rental or lease; so regardless of your waste handling needs, Dicom have the solution.
