Metal swarf shredding for the metal industry - Metal

In metal-working shops utilising swarf-producing manufacturing techniques, the generated swarf is often an underestimated cost factor.

  • The machine operator must drive swarf containers away instead of working productively on the machine tool
  • If the swarf container becomes overfilled, swarf re-enters the conveyor system. As a result, the conveyor jams and the machine is halted.

This means your expensive machine tool cannot attain its full productive potential.

The key challenge here is therefore: PROCESS RELIABILITY

We have the right metal shredder and the best solution for you.

Our machines and systems for swarf shredding and processing offer maximum efficiency, safety and efficiency. We turn each of your metal wastes back into valuable raw materials.

With the decentralised solution, the Erdwich swarf breaker is set up directly next to the lathe or machining centre. The swarf is removed and transported away to a central processing point either manually using a swarf cart or by means of pneumatic extraction, pumping or some other conveyor system.

With the centralised solution, the swarf is collected in swarf carts at each machining centre and then transported to the Erdwich master processing plant. This plant performs central processing of the entire volume of swarf.

Benefits of the two shredding solutions:

  • Greater process reliability for the machine tool
  • Lower transportation costs thanks to higher bulk weight
  • Higher rate of return on scrap sales
  • Reclamation of coolants and lubricants
  • Significantly reduced personnel costs for swarf handling
  • Improved occupational safety
  • ...and many other procedural benefits

With either centralised or decentralised swarf management, Erdwich lets you handle swarf in double-quick time.

Swarf shredder: Centralised and decentralised solutions for metal swarf shredding.

Swarf is unavoidable in stock removal processes, but intelligent chip treatment can lead to significant cost savings and increase process reliability. Erdwich chip shredders are the right tools for this purpose. They reduce chip volume and remove residues of cutting oil and cooling lubricants. This reduces transport costs and increases the scrap value of the chips. Our Erdwich chip shredders are available as centralised and decentralised solutions for optimum use in different production environments.

For efficient swarf management, Erdwich offers proven centralised and decentralised solutions with the following benefits:

  • Greater process reliability for the machine tool
  • Lower transportation costs, thanks to higher bulk weight
  • Higher rate of return on scrap sales
  • Reclamation of coolants and lubricants
  • Significantly reduced personnel costs for swarf handling
  • Improved occupational safety

Whether centralised or decentralised, Erdwich lets you handle swarf management in double-quick time.

Swarf shredder for efficient treatment of waste

Decentralised is ideal. A decentralised swarf shredder reduces the volume of swarf at the point where swarf is produced: on the machine. This minimizes interruptions in the production process caused by chip treatment. Where a decentralised solution for the chip treatment is not possible, for example due to lack of space, central swarf Whether centralized or decentralized, by using one of Erdwich's sophisticated solutions for shredding chips to extend your machine running times and reduce non-productive time, you increase the cost-effectiveness of your machine and personnel deployment. In addition, there are the reduced costs for the removal of the chips, savings through the recovery of cooling lubricants and the higher revenues in the scrap trade due to the reduced contamination of the swarf A whole series of reasons that make the use of Erdwich chip shredders attractive. More detailed information on the possibilities of chip management with Erdwich swarf shredders can be found under the menu 'Application Area' and in our brochure, which you can download below.
