McIntyre is delighted to have sold a Bonfiglioli Squalo 3000 vertical shear to GLJ Recycling, one of Newport’s leading waste management and recycling companies. Built from high strength, high abrasion-resistant Weldox 700 and Hardox 500 special steel, all Squalo shears easily handle all kinds of HMS such as beams, rails, pipe, re-rod, skeleton plate, tanks and other types of heavy or oversized material. The powerful 3000 model can take input material up to around 15m in length and averages one cycle every 30 seconds, giving it the ability to process some 35 tons of scrap metal per hour. This impressive performance will help GLJ to improve the throughput and profitability of its scrap operation. It also offers the best cost-of-ownership in its class. Its blades have four cutting edges, each of which lasts an average of 250-300 working hours (depending on the type and quality of material they process) which means low downtime and service costs. Another advantage of this system is its mobility. It is equipped with four lifting cylinders which enable it to be moved easily onto goose-neck or low-boy trailers.

McIntyre has secured a deal to supply Accrington-based HML Recycling with one of the most popular Roter metal balers in the range it exclusively represents in the UK and Eire. The Roter metal baler RA 140 2XL is a superb and fast auto baler that produces high density bales of a wide range of scrap metal, production scrap, burr and other materials. Phillip Pownall, MD of McIntyre, said, ‘The RA 140 is a real workhorse, with double axels, continuous feeding and the ability to take material from a 600 litres, direct into its hopper, without loss of productivity.’ HML, a family run business since 1965, has become one of the North West’s leading recyclers by delivering customers with the highest profits and most efficient service. It is no surprise, then, that HML chose the RA 140 in part because it can be installed very quickly: with no need for purpose-built foundations, it is can be ready to work in just a few hours after delivery. What is more, HML can expect it to recover its purchase costs very quickly from this well-proven system. The machine is very robust, designed thoughtfully by experienced recycling experts, and made with top quality components that offer a long life span and high uptime between services, even in tough working conditions. When a service is required, all components are easily accessible for speed, and any replacement parts are stored locally at McIntyre’s depot for immediate shipping, to minimise loss of use.

McIntyre has completed the first UK sale of an A-WARD MiSlideTM horizontal container loader, to the Cardiff-based operation of Sims Metal Management, the world’s leading electronics and metal recycling company. Sims prides itself on using the latest and best technology to meet and exceed the increasing requirements for higher recycling and recovery rates. With its patented shotgun ram technology, MiSlide can smoothly and accurately transfer material into a waiting trailer or container in less than five minutes, and on average will hold 5% more material than rival systems. All of this will save Sims valuable time, manpower and space, boosting its productivity and profitability as well as safety. The versatile system will load a wide range of materials, including: light gauge and HMS steel, non-ferrous materials, baled plastics, rubbish and waste, recycled paper, woods and logs, palletised goods, and more. It is designed to last, too, engineered to withstand the toughest of conditions. For more product information, click here.
Shrewsbury-based Jarvis Metals has upgraded its cable granulation operation with the purchase of a new MG Matrix 380VZT cable granulator. The company originally purchased a reconditioned Matrix 220VZT early last year, and this new Matrix 380VZT represents a significant upgrade. A very tidy and compact system, it can process up to 1200kg per hour of cable, and achieve 98% separation of copper or aluminium from plastics - even on fine hair wires and car looms. This impressive performance adds significantly to the profit operators can extract from cables. Built by MG of Italy, we at McIntyre consider Matrix to be the best and most efficient on the market today. See our video showing the MG Matrix 380VZT in action here.
