* Texas Shredder Inc
In co-operation with Resource Recycling, LLC, Texas Shredder Inc. (TSI) of San Antonio, Texas, U.S., has sold the first third-generation Steinert ISS unit to Davis Industries of Lorton, Virginia. The Induction Sorting System (ISS) is designed to recover non-ferrous materials and stainless steel from the eddy-current system waste stream. This is accomplished with specially-designed sensors that recognise the metals and activate air jets to ’pop’ them from the waste stream. The ISS eliminates the need for manual picking and increases non-ferrous metals recovery.
* Lindemann American Baler
The current year got off to a successful start for Lindemann American Baler of Telford, U.K., with seven orders received in the first quarter alone. The company’€™s stock-build programme has enabled it to offer quick delivery, which was important to all the customers involved.
Carpa, one of Spain’€™s largest paper recyclers, has taken delivery of a second Lindemann Bimax 145 paper baling press to be installed at its Madrid plant. This follows the successful installation of a similar machine at its Barcelona plant. Parry & Evans of Welshpool, Powys, U.K., has bought a new Bimax 145 3 x 55 kw paper baling press to replace a Lindemann Bigro 80 which was taken in part exchange and sold to Smurfit Recycling in Glasgow to complement its existing Bigro 100.
Another Bimax 145 3 x 55 kw machine has been ordered by OTC of Lyon, France, and was scheduled for delivery in April. Furthermore, Corrugated Cases has placed an order for an American Baler model 3029-730R horizontal auto-tie baler.
