Europe – Recycling machinery major Metso has launched the N Series, a new range of equipment designed to offer versatility and a broader choice to the scrap metal industry, meeting the requirements of small, medium and larger processors.
N Series products include shears and balers which are solidly engineered, robust, cost-efficient as well as production- and maintenance-friendly, and which have been ‘field-proven’ in the scrap industry, the company explains.
Daniel Zeiler, vice president technology and capital equipment metal recycling at Metso, comments: ‘Our new product range offers reliable technology, efficiency and safety, yet all the features necessary to meet processing needs at competitive price levels. Regardless of the size of our customer’s business, big or small, we strive to be at the forefront in providing the technology and services needed to ensure success.’
The new N Series consists of NIS Inclined Shears, NCS Shear-Baler-Loggers, NLB Lid Balers and NTB Triple Compression Balers which can be complemented with customised service agreements.
Available with cutting forces from 600 to 1250 tonnes, the NIS Inclined Shear is a state-of-the-art gravity-fed shear that can accept long material and large bulky scrap, while the NIS is a self-contained ‘easy-to-install’ unit.
The NCS Shear-Baler-Logger has a true clamshell charge-box design with high compression forces for faster trapping and folding. The multi-use machine is available with cutting forces from 600 to 1000 tonnes. The NCS is a self-contained unit that offers diesel drives and lifting jacks as options for transportable models.
