Austria-based Lindner Recyclingtech, a shredding and waste processing specialist, plans to showcase its smart system solutions during IFAT 2020, which takes place May 4-8 in Munich. During the event, Lindner will showcase its latest generation of the Atlas primary shredder as well as smart system solutions that turn waste recovery facilities into smart factories, the company reports in a news release.
“We have always been one of the industry’s pioneers, which is why the mechanical components of our facilities are already very sophisticated today,” says Stefan Scheiflinger-Ehrenwerth, head of product management at Lindner. “Digitalization and smart technology is now the next evolutionary step. The industry 4.0 concept has triggered an industrial revolution that will also change the waste industry significantly over the coming years. Our customers will work with valuable raw materials, and they must be processed into new, top-quality products with maximum efficiency—whether the ideal fuel for resource-saving energy generation or the raw material for high-quality products made from recyclables.
He continues, “If we look at the requirements and legal regulations that will be imposed on the raw materials industry in the future, the only way we will be able to work profitably is to increase the product quality of fuels and recyclates as efficiently as possible. On the one hand, this will require digital transformation, and on the other we will have to optimize mechanical parts. For example, primary shredding is essential. When it comes to robot sorting, tracer detection or online quality assurance systems, then not only is the optimum particle size important but consistently dosed feeding is crucial. That’s why it’s so important for the individual machines to communicate with each other. Combine that with the power of smart data and it’s easy to make the most of waste.”
Linder will be in Hall B6 at booth 251/350 during IFAT 2020.
