We need to clear some space in our yard to make way for new production buildings. You can see how tight we are for room from the picture! As such we've decided to hold our first ever yard sale which will be run by auctioneers Malcom Harrison on Saturday 19th September 2020. There will be a wide variety of used equipment available which has come into us as part exchanges against new machinery. A such, some will be in working order whilst other items will need work but will be good projects for anyone with engineering skills. We have machines from a number of different manufacturers. We generally fully recondition all of our part exchanges but we can't do them all. We've simply run out of time and yard space - plus we've got builders coming in at the end of October! We'll provide more information of exactly what will be in the sale shortly. The list is ever changing but will include all types of scrap yard equipment. You can also register with Malcolm Harrison for the more information at www.malcolmharrison.co.uk. Bidding will be online or you can join us on our site on the 19th September.

For all its clients, bespoke manufacturing, installation and maintenance are value-added services provided by McIntyre. Phillip Pownall, Managing Director of McIntyre, said, ‘We take safety training very seriously, and we’ve long believed we lead the way in best practice both at our base and at client sites, with a strong track record to substantiate this claim. However, we felt that gaining the independent SafeContractor accreditation would not only be a useful check point for us, but would provide valuable confirmation and reassurance for our clients. Naturally, we hope that Safe Contractor accreditation will enhance our ability to win new contracts, and will be viewed positively by our insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.’ Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: ‘Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing [...]
Rotobec Grabs - the perfect choice for MDJ Light Bros Despite substantial expansion, MDJ Light Brothers’ profits were being undercut by the cost of maintaining its grabs. It turned to McIntyre for a more robust and reliable solution - the solution was Rotobec Meet MDJ Light Brothers With 40 years’ experience in the recycling industry, Sussex-based MDJ Light Brothers has not only gained major scrap metal contracts across the South East but a reputation as a pioneer. It has developed ground-breaking treatments for resources such as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE), scrap cable and low-grade steel from both treated household waste and Energy from Waste plants. Grappling the problem Grabs are business-critical for the company, helping it to handle around 20,000 tonnes of material per month efficiently through its sites. However, the company’s existing systems were not keeping up with the heavy workload. Repairs were required too frequently, and the resulting downtime, maintenance charges and replacement parts were costing the company dearly. Jonathan Light, Company Director of MDJ Light Brothers, said, ‘Pins were breaking regularly, we were repairing or replacing cracked rams at least once a week, and the thin teeth required quite a bit of downtime to flame-cut and weld. What’s more, because the cylinders and rods were not well protected, we had had to commission our own at additional cost. Even with an intensive maintenance regime, each grab required a complete overhaul or replacement after two or three years. ‘Across a fleet of 16 material handlers, this was mounting up to an unacceptable degree of downtime, with a hefty maintenance bill. This undermined our ability to invest for growth, for example in operational innovations or in customer service initiatives. ‘Also, any break in service [...]
McIntyre is delighted to have delivered a Bonfiglioli shear - an I-Cut 2000 - to Singletons, a major Manchester-based scrap metal merchant. This mobile, adjustable vertical shear is a must for metal recyclers who export via container. It is the most powerful, robust and efficient in its class, designed to cut all types of HMS1 and other types of scrap into marketable lengths with an automatic cycle for rapid throughput of up to 32 metric tons/hour. It is robust too: its blades have 4 cutting edges, and each lasts an average of 250-300 working hours. Peter Singleton is really impressed with his new machine. He said, ‘It’s an unbelievable shear, with a really superb performance.’ Read more about the Bonfiglioli large shear range from McIntyre here
Vulcan, the fastest metals analyser for scrap metal sorting has been launched today (24th January 2017). With the most advanced reporting tools on the market, Vulcan is a light, balanced handheld LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) analyser which is easy to use and has the longest battery life in the business. Vulcan has been designed for the rapid identification of a wide range of alloys. Simply point and shoot and in one second you'll know what metal is in that load. Vulcan is available to UK scrap metal processing companies through us at McIntyre. On site demonstrations are available on request so that you test out this amazing new metals analyser in your own yard. A fast, accurate, and durable metals analyser Vulcan is the fastest metals analyser available, taking just one second to measure metal alloys - that’s faster than any XRF (X-ray fluorescence) analyser or any other laser product on the market. This means that large quantities of scrap metal can be sorted easily and fast. Vulcan offers high performance and guarantees very high accuracy and precision for its analysis results. For example, when analysing aluminium, it not only provides the commercial grade of aluminium but also its accurate chemical composition. As Vulcan is so simple to operate, possible user error has been significantly reduced if not almost completely eliminated, so the results obtained from analysis will be reliable and consistent. Designed to be rugged and durable, Vulcan is splash water and dust proof (IP54 certified). In addition, Vulcan’s measurement window is protected by strong sapphire glass, meaning no punctured detectors and no expensive repairs. The instrument has been designed to withstand harsh environments and is tough enough to be used in a scrapyard. In [...]

Change the way you think about your scrap metal grab When we were first approached by Rotobec and asked to market their new scrap metal grab we said no. After all, there are plenty on the market and none of them really stand up to the job. Although they told us this one was different, there's always that feeling that you've heard it all before. And then we saw one at an exhibition in America and were totally sold. This scrap metal grab really is different. Rotobec have considered all the problems you have with damaged cylinders and broken hoses and they've fixed them. You really don't have to take constant problems with your grabs for granted. Imagine the money you could save if you're not constantly replacing expensive components in order to keep your business running......... World's best rotators Called Rotobec for a reason (Rotators of Quebec), this Canadian based manufacturing company has designed the best rotators in the world. Fully sealed to protect them from the elements and external contamination, they offer full 360 degree rotation. There is no need for constant greasing, and they won't leak. Rotobec's cylinders are revolutionary, containing an internal hydraulic channel that eliminates the need for a return hose. The design allows for a cylinder guard which provides 360 degree protection, with no need for an opening for the return valve. This self-contained system therefore provides you with a cylinder that is better protected and more durable than any other option on the market. They are bigger than everyone else's too! Hoses are also provided with protection, being routed in such a way that they are kept out of danger. The addition of impenetrable guarding prevents costly hose tears. Adjustable mechanical [...]
