Electronic scrap

Our customized e-scrap shredders enable you to process electronic scrap in your recycling facility and they align perfectly with your recycling system. The granulate size is adjusted in such a fashion that metals and non-metals can be separated and recycled as completely as possible.

More than 40 million tons of electrical and electronic scrap are generated annually – and the trend is growing dramatically! Recycling electronic devices is not just beneficial for environmental reasons. This scrap, as a rule, contains many precious metals that are recovered during the recycling process. To ensure a high yield during the recovery process, the shredding step should generate only a very low amount of fine particles.

E-scrap shredders that meet your needs
Our reliable 4-shaft shredders are particularly suited for processing e-waste. Their low speed ensures that printed circuit boards and old devices are carefully shredded with low emissions. The recycled material is ideally suited for e-scrap recycling machines and subsequently for cutting facilities where precious metals are separated from impurities.

The shredded and processed electronic scrap is sorted into its various components by downstream separation technology to recover valuable recyclable fractions. Our e-scrap shredders are first choice for a careful processing of electronic scrap with a low content of fine particulate matter. 

Old devices are processed in various shredding and separation phases to ultimately generate marketable fractions. Regardless of whether an old PC or a broken household device is to be recycled – our e-waste shredders ensure reliable, and, first and foremost, economically efficient shredding.

Leading plant manufacturers in the field of refrigerator recycling trust in our reliable shredding machines. Our rotary shears are used for shredding cooling units. The WEEE shredders are convincing with their sturdiness, low speed, low maintenance expenditures, and compact design. 

Printed circuit boards and computer chips often contain large amounts of precious metals. It is possible to recover these valuable precious metals by shredding, sorting and smelting. UNTHA circuit boards shredders set the industry standard for recycling electronic waste thanks to their rugged construction and very low dust generation.
