We are a proud finalist in Global Awards for Steel Excellence in the category Scrap Equipment Company of the Year. You would like to know how we qualified? Please continue reading…
What type of equipment do we offer to ferrous scrap processors?
We develop, produce and deliver shredder wear parts for metal and scrap recycling, e. g. shredder hammers, rotor protection caps, anvils, grids, segments and all other shredder components constantly subjected to wear like angles, side liners, wearing plates, hammer pins and fixing elements to customers in more than 50 countries worldwide. As a family owned mid-sized company we think like the scrap recycling business looking for long term efficiency and partnership.
What distinguishes our equipment from our competitor’s offerings, and the range of services provided to the ferrous scrap sector?
We strive to develop, produce and deliver wear parts with the best cost per ton ratio in the market. Keeping the complete process in house in Germany, we have the shortest feedback times in the market. Different to our competitors we offer an application consulting, as well on-site worldwide. This enables us to support our customers in optimizing their processes. This includes matching the shredder wear parts to the design and the utilization of the machines in which they are used, a shredder experience summary, individual help for customer specific challenges etc. An exclusive US-based representation completes our activities in the North American market. This guarantees regular face to face contact with our North American customers.
What innovative features have we introduced to our equipment lineup to help scrap processors continue to meet environmental regulations while reducing maintenance and operating costs and energy consumption?
We invented the differently heat treated alloyed hammer. In 2019 we launched our original CSNG hammers with a new formula. We kept the tried and tested materials. This offers the shredder operators security and a high availability of their plants with the original from SWB. At the same time, we have optimised the relevant production parameters. The new formula includes adjustments in the use of alloys and a modified heat treatment process. In addition, it comes with the greatest possible homogenisation of the primary microstructure through the use of computer simulation. The optimised CSNG hammers show a significantly improved stress resistance. This leads to a noticeable reduction of the risk of chipping due to overload and, as a result, reduces maintenance and operation costs.
Extremely low temperatures are a demanding challenge for scrap processing equipment. For the use in harsh winter conditions we developed the SWB ‘winter hammer’. With its low temperature toughness and impact strength the SWB ‘winter hammer’ provides utmost operation reliability. It therefore helps to reduce maintenance and operating costs.
What innovative steps have we taken in terms of equipment design, construction and operation to improve reliability and minimize user downtime?
We use finite element stress simulations in order to enforce our products. With up to 37 different types of metal alloys we assure that our products perfectly match the different recycling processes they are used for. A continuous and close contact to the customer, a permanent research and development process, a consistent quality and a consultant team on site in all of North America in case of any challenges have the common goal to improve reliability and to minimize user downtime.
