According to Alpena, Michigan-based Amos Manufacturing Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of industrial shredding and separation equipment, transforming large scrap metal sheets and materials into a manageable size for further processing requires “smart” shredding solutions.

By automating the metal recycling process with the addition of a shredder, the company says recyclers can reduce worker risks associated with manual handling, feeding and cutting of large metal sheets.

To help optimize the recycling process, Amos says it provides a full range of shredding technology, including the 125 HP Dual Shaft Shredder. Each shredder is custom-built based on the requirements of the application and can be tailored to accommodate the feeding, shredding and conveyance of material, according to the company.

The 125 HP Dual Shaft Shredder features a low speed, high torque cutter design that is designed to “shred metal with ease and efficiency, reducing the particle size and providing consistency for further processing and more efficient handling.” This also allows for an increase in the density of scrap material per dumpster, cutting costs associated with otherwise frequent and premature waste transportation, says Amos.

Amos adds that its shredders can reduce volume and create more consistently sized material that increases efficiency for additional downstream operations. The company offers shredders from 1 HP to 400 HP and beyond, with a wide selection of industrial shredders for a variety of applications.
