McIntyre Signed by FORREC as Agent for UK/Eire

Makes McIntyre shredder range the widest in UK For all applications from aluminium, waste and scrap to hard drives and cable We are delighted to announce we have secured the exclusive distribution rights in the UK and Eire for Italian company, FORREC Recycling Systems, which gives it the widest range of shredders in the nation. Over the past 20 years, FORREC has established a strong international reputation for the innovative design and meticulous manufacture of systems to process all types of solid industrial waste, including 32 models of shredders such as: FX 5000 and FX 8000 rotary shearing machines – ideal for cars (baled or whole) and bulk ferrous or non-ferrous scrap and sheet metal. Unlike many shredders on the market, these systems are designed specifically for purpose. They are constructed from the highest quality steel, and engineered to deliver maximum throughput (20-40 tons/h) with minimum maintenance time and cost. Special features include a dual shaft system with two motors per shaft (twice the norm), independent engines and reducers, automatic greasing managed by a ruggedised PLC, bearings outside the cutting chamber and interchangeable blades in a unique, robust steel. The low rotations per minute (4-6rpm) generates high torque to process even very difficult materials. TQ four-shaft shredders – ideal for aluminium and a range of waste materials. These heavy duty shredders deliver all the reliability, ease-of-use and power of the FX with the additional ability to control the size of output. Built for heavy-duty use, TQ shredders are efficient and flexible machines. Their low rotation (10-12 rpm), unique interchangeable shaft system and wear-proof screens significantly reduce maintenance costs. XK 3000 H single-shaft grinder (hydraulic) – ideal for aluminium. This grinder with hydraulic transmission is designed [...]

GLJ Increases Scrap Processing with Bonfiglioli Shear

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’s Roter Metal Baler to Help HML Optimise Profits

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. Additional product details Has a customisable pre-load hopper mounted on the top of the charging box Start/Stop is performed by a remote control as standard included, allowing safe control The close of charging box is made by the horizontal [...]

Jarvis Upgrades with Matrix from McIntyre

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.

Safe contractor accreditation awarded to McInytre

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded safe contractor accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor.    Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK ranging from SMEs to FTSE 100 companies. With scrap metal roots extending back to 1872, McIntyre has evolved to become the gold standard in recycling systems and services, employing over 30 people, and having installed 27,000 machines worldwide. Today, it not only operates its own recycling centre, it both manufactures and resells the best recycling systems available, to help its clients to maximise profits from metal, cars, waste and aluminium. McIntyre’s most recent clients have included major players as far afield as MDJ Light Bros and Singleton’s in England, Molloy Metals in Ireland, Aleris International in the USA, and Groupe Sotrem-Maltech in Canada. 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.

McIntyre Grabs More Profit for MDJ Light Bros

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 [...]
