By the end of 2010, German manufacturer WEIMA introduced its new universal shredder Spider 1500 for the first time. Now, the German manufacturer has extended its product range with the new models Spider 1000 and Spider 2000.
The new handheld sorter X-MET7000 has the largest colour touch-screen display and longest battery life available on the market, according to Oxford Instruments, the UK manufacturer of analytical instruments.
The Extractor in-line magnet from S+S Separation and Sorting Technology has been developed for plastics industry applications to protect extruders as well as injection and blow moulding machines.
Vezzani has introduced a new mobile shear based on the principles of its PC/AC pre-compression shear. The new VS pre-compression shear occupies the 600- to 700-tonne range and uses the same gravity feed system that Vezzani patented for its PC/AC stationary shears.
Shred-Tech, the secure shredding technology specialist, has introduced the MDX-1 - described as the industry’s first fully-automated, dual-mode, ultra-high-security Mobile Shredding Truck.
Italy-based scrap shear-baler manufacturer Sierra Europe will deliver its first inclined shear - the Sierra Hawk 715 LS - in 2012. Weighing in at more than 60 tonnes, the shear has a 715-tonne shearing force while its flipper boasts a 200-tonne pushing force to help in processing mixed and light material.
TDL, the distributor for Atlas and Terex, has unveiled the Atlas 340LCi - a 42-tonne-class materials handler combining the upper structure of the Atlas 350MH materials handler with the tracked undercarriage from its 340LC excavator. The new machine is said to offer significant operational and financial benefits, including a very large working envelope, exceptional stability, low ground-bearing pressure and excellent manoeuvrability. Its compact 3.2-metre-wide by 4.8-metre footprint is said to compare favourably with the 4.5 metres by 5.5 metres needed to deploy the outriggers on a wheeled machine of equivalent size.
When shredded tyres are subjected to a separation process using a standard overband magnetic separator, the extracted iron still carries a high proportion of rubber remnants. In a bid to solve this problem, Cogelme of Italy has developed a separator specifically suited to perform this task automatically, delivering clean iron and clean steel in a single, short pass.
