Poland – Alumetal SA, one of Europe’s largest aluminium casting alloy producers, has opened a new plant in Poland featuring three TiTech sorting machines.
The plant at NowaSÃ³l is operating three high-speed x-tract (XRT) sensor-based sorting systems capable of processing up to 30 tonnes per hour. After shredding and screening, the X-ray-based machines remove heavy metals and high alloy aluminium to deliver a high-quality product for re-smelting.
Launched two years ago, the TiTech x-tract machines are said to offer an excellent return on investment and high levels of accuracy. They are capable of sorting, via atomic density, a variety of input streams including ferrous scrap and organic wastes.
The Alumetal Group, which dates back to 1953, has locations at K?ty, Gorzyce and NowaSÃ³l in Poland and produces aluminium alloys from scrap. TiTech is part of TOMRA Sorting of Norway and has already supplied more than 3000 sensor-based sorting machines to the waste and metal recycling industries in more than 40 markets.
