Abstract (en)

Method for the removal of binding strings or wires (2) from a bale of cellulose (3), presenting the steps of identifying each of the binding strings or wires (2), of cutting the said strings or wires (2), and of coupling an intermediate portion (67) of each string or wire (2) to a single mobile drawing head (18) towards a depositing station (7a) in a given direction (46a); the drawing head (18) having a pair of comb-like members (49), each of which is provided with a plurality of seats (52) set alongside each other, and the coupling of the strings or wires (2) to the drawing head (18) being achieved by displacing the head (18) and the bale (3) with respect to one another in a vertical direction until the comb-like members (49) are brought into a position facing respective lateral surfaces (16) of the bale (3), separating the intermediate portions (67) of the strings or wires (2) until each intermediate portion (67) is inserted inside a corresponding seat (52), and clamping each intermediate portion (67) inside the corresponding seat (52) by means of a respective mobile clamping member (54). <IMAGE>
