Metso, Helsinki, Finland, has replaced its first generation Eta Cut with the Eta Cut II scrap shear. In addition to the key features of its predecessor, Metso says the Eta Cut II comes with a number of innovations: a new human machine interface (HMI), a new transport design and an ergonomic control cabin. Furthermore, the company says the redesigned hydraulic concept allows higher energy efficiency and productivity per installed kilowatt.

The Eta Cut II is designed to provide increased processing flexibility, low specific power consumption, enhanced operational reliability and reduced maintenance costs due to its service-friendly design.

According to Metso, the scrap shear offers improved rigidity of components for a longer service life. The HMI allows for integration of future online service applications and machine data collection.

The shear features an intuitive touch screen, the company says, along with a new control cabin with angled glass fronts and ergonomic operator chair with integrated control elements.

“The Eta Cut has defined completely new standards in the scrap industry since its release in 2002,” observes Uffe Hansen, Metso vice president of sales and marketing. “The Eta Cut II offers innovative adjustments of the Eta Cut first-generation features to suit the customers’ and users’ needs.”

Metso says the Eta Cut II combines 400-bar high-pressure hydraulic technology with a compact design to create an energy-efficient solution. In addition, the new shear may generate transport costs savings because of its new press box partitioning, resulting in reduced transport dimensions and simplified installation, the company says.
