Metals

Regardless of whether your metal waste comes from the metal-processing industry, automotive industry, electronics industry, waste industry or commercial production, we will always offer you the right shredding system for recycling your valuable resources!

Metals are important raw materials for the industry and can be repeatedly returned to the recovered resource cycle with very little loss. The recycling of metals saves valuable raw materials and energy as opposed to the new processing of ores.   

Our sturdy industrial metal shredders have been tried and tested a thousand times over, reliably and efficiently shred light metals such as aluminium, magnesium, Al-Mg alloys, copper or nickel, as well as harder metals such as iron, zirconium, titanium and sheet steel.
