MaTech, the Benelux agent for Taurus scrap shears, has recently sold several new and second-hand scrap shears. Naxor Company from Beirut in the Lebanon has purchased a second-hand Taurus 645 HP shear with 600-tonne cutting force and a 6000 mm box to speed up its scrap operations in the Middle East. In The Netherlands, meanwhile, a completely refurbished scrap shear has been installed at Eerste Lelystadse Schroothandel in Lelystad; the SM652P pre-compression shear boasts a shearing force of 650 tonnes and is expected to double company output to 15 tonnes per hour. MaTech has also taken an order from Belgian scrap recycler All Minute Metals and will commission a 600-tonne scrap shear with 6 metre box towards the end of 2003.
