Shred and press aluminium swarf

Fercell Engineering has devised an efficient waste management solution for aluminium-based swarfs. Computer numerical control machining processes cause high volumes of waste material. Such swarfs, when disposed of rather than recycled, result in high costs and are an environmental concern.

So Fercell is now distributing the Weima WLK4 aluminium shredder and TH800M briquette press for aluminium (pictured). Shredding can reduce the material volume significantly, but this is just one part of the process.

Pressing that material into compacted briquettes means it can be sold at better prices to metal recyclers, while a sturdy briquette can better optimise stock space and has decreased transport costs.

The shredded chips can also be processed via a centrifuge within the press to reduce the content of oil and emulsion. These expensive coolants can be cleaned and returned to the production process. The savings potential for lubricants is up to 95% when using a briquetting press.
