Scrap recycling in Switzerland
One machine for everything: Weatherproof two-shaft shredder RM1350/2-2000
Maag Recycling AG in Winterthur, Switzerland, collects, sorts and reprocesses a wide variety of waste, including cardboard packaging, non-ferrous metals, scrap iron, glass and electrical and electronic equipment. For this purpose, alongside balers and sorting plants, the company operates a rotary shear, which has been used for shredding metals since 1999.
Due to signs of wear and tear as well as the increasing demands on the entire recycling process, those responsible decided to replace the rotary shear. The wish is that, on the one hand, the new plant should have the lowest possible maintenance requirements and, on the other hand, be robust enough to handle even the shredding of massive parts without damage.
