The world’s leading manufacturer of container tilters, container loader and container unloaders, A-Ward, have scooped a number of honours at New Zealand’s premier business awards. A-Ward beat some impressive competition, taking top honours at the Westpac Auckland Business Awards in the categories of ‘Excellence in Exporting’ and ‘Excellence in Innovation’ – before going on to take the top Supreme Overall Winner. All of us at McIntyre would like to congratulate Simon Ward and his team who have experienced significant global growth in recent years. This growth results from their ongoing commitment to quality and innovation – and, of course, being represented in the UK by McIntyre. There is no doubt that A-Wards container tilters, loaders and unloaders are the best on the market for maximising the amount of material which can be shipped in an export container. Their patented products have transformed business performance for thousands of companies across the globe.
A-Ward have recently supplied their state of the art equipment to Coca Cola in the USA, Toyota in Japan, a Heinekin brewery in Congo – and several scrap yards in the UK! We look forward to our continuing relationship with A-Ward, and in order to reduce lead times on these superb products, have just taken delivery of a new container tilter which can be dispatched immediately from stock.

McIntyre is now able to offer you the latest in hand-held X-Ray metal analysers in association with leading instrument manufacturers Oxford Instruments. X-MET8000 is a light, rugged and accurate XRF metal analyser designed to sort scrap fast and help you maximise your profits. Offering rapid on-site alloy identification and chemistry of most commercial alloys including aluminium, titanium, bronze and high temperature materials. In fact X-MET has the largest grade library, with over 1600 alloys. It is able to quantify tramp and penalty elements, and most importantly can be used in the toughest environments. X-MET800 is easy to use with proven “point and shoot” simplicity requiring minimal operator training. Its large colour touchscreen gives excellent results visibility even in direct sunlight.
Designed with scrap yards in mind, no tool is required to change the analysis window when broken or dirty. The results screen can also be customised to suit your own operation allowing you to display the information that is important to your business for example alloy grade, elemental composition, pass/fail messages, or elements listed in your chosen order. Extremely compact and balanced, so your operators will love you, the X-MET can be provided with an optional shield to prevent detector and X-ray tube damage when testing small components and sharp objects. Small sample sizes can be tested, such as turnings, wires down to 1mm diameter, fasteners and chips. X-MET can also be calibrated to handle the dust from catalytic converters.
McIntyre also supplies the Oxford Instruments’ mPulse hand held laser metals analyser for fast metal sorting – which makes us the only company currently able to offer a complete analysis solution to the UK metals recycling industry.
Be amongst the first to view our new McIntyre re-brand together with the latest in recycling equipment at this year’s RWM (2014) stand 5S20-T21 from 16th to 18th September in Birmingham. The McIntyre stand at RWM will provide the launch site for the new Matrix 150 Easy cable granulation system, for example, which is being shown for the first time in the UK. This system is able to process up to 300kg an hour of all cable types when operated with a shredder. It has a new blade configuration which results in higher production rates at less cost, longer life, less maintenance and a reduced need for spare parts. The door is sound-proofed to reduce noise and the cutting chamber is equipped with anti-wear plates. Also new is the Wagner WS30 hard drive shredder, a double shaft shredder which has the ability to process 400 to 500kg an hour of hard drives. It completely destroys hard drives, ensuring that data is unrecoverable. It can also be used for destroying other data devices such as CDs and DVDs, plus general WEEE. Importantly, the machine can easily be transported. This removes the need to take hard drives off-site, which further aids data security.
Another top attraction will be the latest upgrade of the McIntyre catalytic converter guillotine. The system is already admired for its durability and the rate at which it processes and recycles catalytic converters. Now, McIntyre further enhances its safety features with the addition of an innovative hands-free opening system. The guillotine’s previous design had prevented operators from accessing the cutting blade. With this new version, McIntyre has also made the process of opening the catalytic converters after cutting hands-free, making this the safest equipment [...]
We went prepared for rain but it was sunny in Doncaster for the 2014 Cars Expo. Motorhog provided a fantastic venue, allowing us to demonstrate all of our machinery in action. It makes such a change to see metal processing and car depollution machinery actually working, rather than looking pretty on a static stand. The new SAS Forks engine puller caused quite a stir – ripping out engines from cars in seconds, despite our rather unpracticed JCB driver. Once the engines were removed they were loaded directly into a JMC engine breaker which cracks and separates the engines into their component parts. Also on show was the new JMC catalytic converter guillotine which provides a safe method of recovering the valuable dust from catalytic converters. The MG car loom granulator looked impressive, producing clean copper granules from car looms – although we failed to process all of the 17 tonnes of car looms somewhat hopefully provided for us by Motorhog. The Vortex car depollution stand, tower and mobile fuel tool all sold, car lifts and fuel extraction systems all sold at the show. Tyres were processed on a McIntyre 600 tyre and radiator cutter, and also via a Vortex wheel popper which removes them from steel and alloy wheels. We also demonstrated the versatility of the JMC Metal-i-can multipurpose metal baler as it might light work of oil filters and radiators. All in all a great show, well worth a visit for both scrap metal and car recyclers. If you missed it and would like to know more about our car recycling equipment, or receive our show brochure please contact us.
Perhaps not quite as exotic as Las Vegas, but Motorhog in Doncaster UK is the venue for Cars Expo 2014 on 5th and 6th of June. JMC is a headline sponsor for the show and will be demonstrating a complete range of equipment for car recycling, from Vortex car-de-pollution equipment right through to machines able to process car components such as engines, catalytic converters and car looms. Taking centre stage this year will be the SAS Scorpion, an engine puller able to remove the entire engine and transmission from vehicles in only 30 seconds. Fitted to a JCB wheel loader, Scorpion will be in action throughout both days of the show. Also on offer will be an MG cable granulation system which has been modified for processing car looms. MG cable granulators are the best in the world for separating the metal and plastic from all types of cable. The new JMC catalytic converter guillotine will also be in action along with JMC alligator shears, the JMC oil filter baler, and engine cracker. Vortex de-pollution will be represented by a Vortex tower with roaming oil and water drainer, a Vortex stand, a mobile fuel tool and a vehicle lift and tilt system. Motorhog operate an RB6000 car baler manufactured by Idromec. This machine won’t be running, but visitors will be able to see how nice it is. JMC are the UK distributors for Idromec.
So if you process vehicles, or want to start, then come to Motorhog in Doncaster for Cars 2014. Further details on the show can be found here.
Our genuine McIntyre alligator shears will be on show on the OBC stand number 1648 at ISRI14 in Las Vegas. We will have a McIntyre 200B, the ever popular McIntyre 407 and a McIntyre 500 shear with hold down – just part of our complete line of hydraulic alligator shears which range in size from 6″ in blade length up to more than 24″ blade length. MC has been selling hydraulic metal shears in the States for over forty years and as more than 4000 in operation. We are now looking for the oldest working McIntyre alligator shear in America. So if you think you have it, contact us with a photo of the machine and a close up of the serial number plate. There’s a stone flagon of McIntyre Spirit of Dunkirk whisky (the last we know of in existence) on offer to the owner of the oldest shear we find. Also see our new catalytic converter guillotine on the Vortex stand number 1448. We look forward to seeing you on one of our ISRI2014 stands!
Demonstrations of the new THOR 2121 K mobile shredder will take place in Spain 23rd to 30th April. This plant is specifically designed to handle scrap metal and has the largest hammer mill of any other mobile shredder manufactured worldwide. An impressive machine, the 2121K is unusual in that it has the capacity to process whole vehicles.
With increasing requests now coming in for large scale mobile shredders for the construction, waste and metals industries, JMC has formed an alliance with ZB Shredders of Spain. With a high reduction capacity, ZB mobile shredder units can handle light metal scrap, demolition waste, white goods, aluminium gear boxes, electronic scrap, used beverage cans and, with the new 2121K, even cars. Models available able to handle from 1 to 1.5 tonnes per hour up to a staggering 20 to 30 tonnes an our output of ferrous scrap and 15 to 20 tonnes per hour of aluminum scrap. The machines are equipped with heavy duty hammer mills. Options include remote control and magnetic separation.
These mobile shredders are truly unique, ideal for the metals and construction industries where mobility is important, but useful in a whole range of applications.
If you would like to see the new 2121K mobile shredder in action next month then phone us on 0115 9409630 or email email@example.com

Our 30th aluminum ingot casting machine set sail for Mexico last month with two more going out early this year. Aluminium ingot casting equipment has become an important and valued part of our business and we very much appreciate our latest, and indeed all of our ingot casting machinery customers.
JMC ingot casting machines are primarily for aluminium and were originally developed in our own foundry. As such we recognize that an ingot casting machine has to be extremely well built to ensure long life in a foundry environment – as well as being fast, efficient and 100% reliable. We source only the best castings and components and build the frames in house from high-quality steel. Our pouring systems have been designed to minimise dross formation in turn dramatically improving the ingots produced. An adjustable speed system allows the volume of metal poured into each mould to be accurately controlled, producing ingots of a consistent weight and dimension. As the moulds travel up the incline and around the head sprockets they invert, allowing the ingots to fall assisted by two hammers.
We have a number of basic models to produce cones, cubes or long bar ingot with ingot production capacities from 5 to 10 tonnes an hour. JMC ingot casting machines can also be purpose-built to meet your own foundry requirement.
Further information on our ingot casting machines can be found on our dedicated ingot casting website.
It’s not often that a totally new and unique product hits the metal recycling industry – but mPulse is one of them. mPulse is a hand-held portable metals analyser which uses a powerful micro-laser beam. Tests are really fast, taking just over a second. mPulse operation is completely point and shoot with no program selections to make or electrodes to clean. Light elements are analysed as easily as heavier elements, and even the smallest samples such as granules and turnings can be tested. And there’s no X-Rays so no need for operator certification or licencing. We are currently offering demonstrations of the new mPulse at customer sites throughout the UK so contact us for further information or a demo. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0115 9409630.
