Baling & Shearing
Baling & Shearing

Mobile solutions that reduce yield loss and environmental footprint

The baling process increases the density of lighter scrap into manageable blocks for more efficient handling, transportation and denser charges into melting furnaces. For scrap too large to be melted within a furnace, shearing/mechanical cutting is done to reduce its size.

Shearing provides benefits over more traditional methods of gas and oxy-cutting, by reducing the yield loss of scrap and improving safety. Various steel waste streams generated on-site, or purchased scrap, can be recycled quickly and efficiently using our shearing technology and expertise.

Our system allows for shearing equipment to be moved to where the scrap is located, as opposed to moving the scrap to the shearing zone, reducing transportation costs and reducing carbon emissions. Shearing of steel waste reduces fumes and dust and can offer a smaller operating footprint.
