COPEX has just started up a 1000-ton LIDEX side compression shear press at the Hirsch Recycling recycling company.
Active in the industrial demolition sector, the recycling company established for three generations, wanted a powerful scrap shear capable to process the very large volumes of ferrous and non-ferrous metals that the family company supplies to the iron and steel industry and for export.
The LIDEX are the only side compression shearing presses offering a complete automatic cycle, from the discharge of the pre-load table into the compression box to the box closing. The bundling and shearing cycles are fully automatic.
This is precisely what appealed to the company. With a cutting force of 1,000 tons, the newly started LIDEX has a cutting width of 800 mm, a box of 8 x 2 m and an electric drive of 4 x 110 kW. A machine of this type can process up to 42 tons per hour.
