Munich – We can look back on a successful week at IFAT.

We were there again this year with a dedicated team. From 13 to 17 May 2024, we exhibited at the world’s leading trade fair for environmental technologies.

A particular highlight of our trade fair appearance was the launch of our latest innovation – the JumboLoadBaler. We offer companies the perfect solution for on-site installation and time-efficient disposal. Thanks to its generous feed opening, the JumboLoadBaler redefines the standards for fast and convenient compaction of large-volume cardboard packaging, film, PET bottles and beverage cans. Manual shredding of materials is now a thing of the past.

In addition to the JumboLoadBaler, we had a selection of our wide product range on display:

The AutoLoadBaler – our semi-automatic baler, which is filled via an integrated collection trolley system. We fitted this baler with a Plexiglas screen so that visitors could see directly into the inner workings of the machine, which was very well received. It reliably presses large quantities of cardboard and paper.

The AutoLoadBalerready as a low profile – This semi-automatic baling press impresses with its compact and low construction, so this machine can also be installed in buildings with a low room height of less than 2.2 metres. This model has certain interfaces so that the baler can be expanded into an AutoLoadBaler.

The LiquiDrainer – clean emptying, safe separation from the packaging and targeted collection of unsaleable liquids with our LiquiDrainer®, the crowd-puller on our stand. Here, too, we installed a disc so that visitors could see exactly how PET bottles were emptied and devalued.

The BalePress 10 – The BalePress 10 is our largest small baler and offers the highest level of convenience in our small baler range. With impressive baling performance and ease of use, it reliably bales cardboard and film.

Our basketball competition, in which participants could qualify for a smartwatch or two vouchers of their choice by hitting the basketball hoop attached to the JumboLoadBaler, was also a success and was well received by visitors and our team alike. The prizes made their way to their new owners this week.

IFAT provided the ideal platform to strengthen existing business relationships and initiate new partnerships. Due to its high efficiency and easy handling, the JumboLoadBaler was particularly attractive to numerous visitors to IFAT. Our trade fair team and our sales representatives had many intensive discussions with existing customers and potential new customers. This direct dialogue provided us with valuable insights and constructive feedback, which we will incorporate into the further development of our products.

The success of this trade fair is the result of teamwork. With their commitment and expertise, our trade fair team played a key role in making our presence at IFAT a complete success.

We would like to thank all visitors for their great interest and look forward to further intensifying the many inspiring discussions and contacts in the coming months. The positive response encourages us to continue focussing on innovation and sustainability and to shape the future of waste disposal technology together with our customers and partners.

We are already looking forward to IFAT 2026 – Strautmann Umwelttechnik will be there!
