Recognized globally by the plastic recycling industry

Cross Wrap’s patented CW Dewiring machine is recognized globally by the plastic recycling industry – CW Dewiring machines boost the PET recycling processes and plastic recycling plant operations worldwide. 

Replaces dangerous manual bale wire-cutting operations

The automatic Cross Wrap Bale Dewiring machine replaces the dangerous manual bale wire-cutting operations. The plastic recycling industry’s pioneers trust in the CW Dewiring machine; for example, globally operating Indorama, US-based CarbonLITE, and Swiss-based Poly Recycling have taken CW Dewiring machine as part of their PET recycling process.

Plastic recycling equipment manufacturers and suppliers of PET recycling equipment have recognized the importance of automatic bale dewiring. CW Dewiring machine is an excellent production booster for their PET recycling lines and PET washing lines. 


The CW Dewiring machine fulfills the needs of the plastics recycling process and makes the bale dewiring process safe and productive. The machine cuts and removes steel wires and plastic straps automatically from the rPET, HDPE, LDPE, or mixed plastic bales, with high reliability. The CW Dewiring machine coils the removed wires automatically into small, tight bundles for easy recycling.

The unique and industry-proven CW Dewiring machine is the number one choice of a modern plastic recycler. Cross Wrap Dewiring provides productivity and safety advantages for plastic recycling industries through complete automation of the bale dewiring and material infeed to pet recycling process and other plastic recycling processes.

Cross Wrap Dewiring helps maintain a steady flow of high-quality recycled materials for processing without bale wires.

The CW Dewiring machine safely cuts, removes and coils the bale wires

The CW Dewiring process makes the handling, storing, and recycling of the removed wires easy and efficient.

The automatic wire removal operation reduces the downtime and production line machinery wear. It also reduces the need for manual or magnetic metal removal in plastic recycling processes. For Cross Wrap customers, the CW Dewiring is an essential part of their PET recycling methods and a must-have bale dewiring solution among their PET recycling equipment. 


The CW Dewiring machine has the industry’s lowest operating cost and fastest investment payback time compared to traditional methods.

Cross Wrap Dewiring offers safe and effective operation for plastic material recycling, boosting production and enhancing overall efficiency while reducing labor costs. Cross Wrap Dewiring reduces landfill use by coiling the bale wires into an easily recyclable form. Cross Wrap Dewiring minimizes litter, thanks to automatically controlled in-feed and out-feed conveyors. 

How CW Dewiring lowers your operating costs: 

  • Fully automatic operation reduces the need for manual labor 
  • Optimal operating system with a low operating cost
  • Built to last machine construction with high reliability
  • Automatic Bale Dewiring minimizes the problems caused by the bale wires
  • Flexible solution that adjusts to your recycling line infeed speed 
  • Automatic wire coiling eases the wire handling
