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.
