In 1986, Syntech started building refuse container body to be assembled to imported compactor head.
In 1987, Syntech became the first company in Singapore to produce its own refuse compactor.
In 1996, Syntech became the first company in Singapore to produce refuse compactors on a series production basis.History
In December 1995 Syntech was awarded a contract by ENV to produce 300 units of compactors over a 16-month period.
Prototype unit built using standard jigs was completed in April 1996.
Full production started thereafter and delivery began in May 1996.
This redesign gave rise to our new range of compactors - the SMC range.SMC Range of Compactors
and were able to produce one unit a day.
Beginning in May 1996 we started
our delivery to SEMAC, at a rate of
six units a week.

In the two years that
followed, we sold
forty more units.
Besides producing standard SMC range of refuse compactors, Syntech also customised its compactors to suit customers’ requirements.
There are many options available on our SMC range of compactors. They are:
There are many features in our SMC range of refuse compactors that are not common in most of the refuse compactors currently in operation here.
While most compactors are fixed with a certain number of cycles per operation, our compactor can vary this cycle from 1 -11, depending on the choice of the operator.
Currently we are the only manufacturer here with this feature.
Programme Logic Controller (PLC)
Our SMC compactor is installed with a PLC to control and monitor the electrical system in the compactor as opposed to the use of analogue system by others.
Repair to electrical fault takes minutes with this system, while others take hours, sometime days, to rectify the same problem.
20 Amp Power Supply
Our hydraulic and electrical system is designed to operate at 20 A current supply, in accordance to HDB requirements.
Most system in the market are operating at 32 A, which is not acceptable to HDB bin centre operation.
Full Welds (Auto-weld System)
All welding done on the compactor is by full weld, giving no chance for the ingress of water into the welding seam that results in formation of rust.
In addition, all welds on the main body is done by auto-weld machine. This gives a very good quality finish to the compactor.
A tailgate trough is incorporated at the bottom of the rear door.
With the tailgate trough, even if the door seal is damaged and leaks, water would be collected at the trough and not drip onto the roads while the unit is in transportation.
Main Hydraulic Cylinders
We monitored the drainage system supplied by us to SEMAC as well as by others in operation and came to the conclusion that the best system would be a valve system that opens automatically when the compactor is put in operation.
Push Button Control
Door Seal Design
Compactor Body Cross Beam
Printed Circuit Board (PCB)
There had been some cases of meltdown of the hydraulic system due to overheating. This was due to the failure of the faulty PCB microchip. Though this problem had already been solved by the use of heavy duty type, we installed all new units with a thermostat so that there would be an automatic cut-off once a critical temperature had been reached.
