Italy – Recycling equipment supplier Garuti Processing Solutions (GPS) of Italy has unveiled its new Raptor-4 fully-automatic rail breaker and foundry scrap shear. The machine’s inclined vibrating ‘open feeding bed’ automatic technology is claimed to deliver ‘over 360 cuts per hour’ or 2900 cuts per day.
Marco Garuti, managing director of GPS, comments: ‘Inclined feed systems for shears drastically improve profitability and productivity on the heavier grades of scrap.’
GPS has added inclined feed bed shears to its standard and traditional shear baler line in order to offer ‘a more versatile product range’ and ‘to have the ability to really focus on our customers’ needs’, Garuti points out.
Inclined feed shears such as the Raptor-4 and the Monster 800 ‘focus their power on pressing and shearing’, adds GPS area manager Pierluigi Sambolino. ‘If you don’t need to make bales or logs, why invest in something you only use at 50%? It is better to buy machinery that focuses on what you need to do better and excludes all that is unnecessary.’
According to Garuti, ‘hard work’ has been invested over recent years in improving the quality of the company’s designs in order to provide machinery that will exceed customer expectations.
