WHY DO WE DO IT?


Sometimes I ask myself why I work in this industry. Let’s be honest, at a dinner party or social occasion, when I’m asked what I do, and I reply referring to scrap metal processing or scrap machinery, normally there aren’t any follow on questions, the conversation moves on to more interesting “other” things.

For some reason scrap is not generally interesting.

Why is selecting the right shear or shear baler such a difficult decision?

Why is selecting the right shear or shear/baler such a difficult decision?


The process of selecting the proper tool for your scrap processing necessities can be quite nerve breaking at times.

What type of scrap do you really need to process? What kind of finished product are you expecting to obtain? Do you need to shear scrap only or occasionally you will want also to bale or log scrap? These are the key questions you should focus on. Ideally you would like the equipment to process everything but  keep in mind that this might be quite uneconomical for you.

THE RECYCLING MACHINERY MINEFIELD


If you are here reading this Blog, then you’re either looking for recycling machinery or (like us) love machinery.

The task of selecting recycling machinery to do a job is always very difficult. You’re never sure until some time after any machine is installed if you made a good choice or bad choice.

WHAT ARE THE MOST INDICATED WAYS TO PROCESS SCRAP METAL?


 

First of all we have to say that scrap is being processed mainly because of the necessity to reduce its size for transportation from the scrap yard where it is collected to the steel mill or foundry where it is used. Once scrap reaches the scrap yard where it is processed it is transformed into a product and with smelters requiring more and more a high quality product specific equipment and processes are required in order to obtain the highest possible value. The value is defined by the purity , size and density of the product sold to steel mills and foundries.

There are three different ways to process scrap metal and these can be summarized as follows:

PAST AND FUTURE OF SCRAP PROCESSING MACHINERY

PAST AND FUTURE OF SCRAP PROCESSING MACHINERY


Today’s scrap recycling equipment is so much safer to operate and better performing than the past. At the end of the first half of last century a huge amount of physical labor was required for moving, sorting and preparation of scrap.

This type of work, performed within scrap yards where security was certainly not a priority, led to daily serious accidents.

Also energy consumption was not an issue and it was not uncommon to see scrap-processing machinery like scrap shears operate with 6, 8 or even 10 electric motors.
