Finish company Metso will present its metal recycling product line at the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) 2018 Convention & Exposition (ISRI2018) April 14-19 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
At Booth No. 1239, Metso experts at the event will advise visitors on how to choose the most suitable equipment for various metal recycling needs.
"At ISRI, we are addressing key trends in the metal recycling industry in North America,” says Keith Carroll, vice president of Metso Metal Recycling North America, which is based in San Antonio. “We are committed to driving sustainable improvements in performance and profitability in our customers' businesses.”
Metso says its processing equipment offers high efficiency and low energy consumption. The company says it provides “state-of-the-art technology, comprehensive service setup and the highest safety standards” as exemplified in Metso being named as American Metal Market’s (AMM’s) Scrap Equipment Provider of the Year for 2017 and being named a finalist again for 2018.
In the last year and during the first quarter of 2018, Metso says it has continued to grow its installed base in North America and globally.
In North America, for example, a customer in the Midwest commissioned new Texas Shredder equipment. Several customers in Texas have chosen Metso N-Series products, including two NIS incline shears and the first U.S.-installed NCS shear/baler/logger. Orders are in production to deliver and install new shears in the western and Midwest U.S., as well as the first Lindemann EtaRip preshredder this fall, the company says.
In total, more than 150 Metso shredders are currently in operation in North America alone, which represents about half of the total operating capacity in the market, according to Metso. Additionally, through the Lindemann and Metso N-Series brands, there are more than 40 shear and baler installations currently in North America.
Internationally, Metso says it has sold three new shredders to China, multiple shredders, shears and balers in Europe and Asia and approximately two dozen Metso N-Series products all over the world.
To better serve smaller and more price-sensitive midmarket operators, Metso introduced the N-Series line of shears and balers in 2016. These machines offer many of the same features and benefits as the Metso Lindemann line of shears and balers and are fully supported by Metso's global engineering and service teams, the company says.
The N-Series product range includes the NIS inclined shear, NCS clamshell shear/baler/logger, NMS mobile shear/baler/logger, NTB triple-ram baler, NLB lid baler, and NBS box shear. Metso says these products offer “robust performance for smaller operators and for niche industries.” The NIS inclined shear, for example, can shear reclaimed rebar from C&D (construction and demolition) sites, which can be a challenging material to process.
Metso offers a full range of preshredders, automobile shredders, shears, balers and briquetters, along with complete capabilities for developing custom solutions for its customers' ferrous and nonferrous scrap processing needs.
