Wing Scrap Shears S-Wing

The new S-Wing heavy series scrap shears are specially designed to compress and shear various types of scrap, from light to medium-heavy.

The S-Wing shears concentrate all COPEX’s know-how in a range of machines capable to offer high performance and durability:

  • Reliability of the extra-long shear guide,
  • High compaction performance achieved by wings overtravel and simultaneous cylinder movements,
  • Durability and longevity thanks to a reinforced compression box and integral protection of the pusher rod and compression box cylinders,
  • Ease of installation of the machine by a simple and economic civil engineering.

Key Advantages

Shear frame

The simultaneous movements of the shear and the stamper enable very high cutting speeds to be achieved.

The 1000t cutting force version is equipped with a rail breaker to process the hardest scrap.

The extra-long slide-block guide guarantees constant cutting performance despite intensive use. The control of the clearance between the blades contributes to an increase in the machine’s service life and a reduction in energy consumption.

Durability and longevity

Perfectly protected, the pusher cylinder rod is covered over its entire length. The wear plates of the pusher piston and the bottom of the compression box are grooved, preventing any scrap metal from passing through.

All hydraulic connections, box cylinders, electrical wiring and sensitive elements such as magnetostrictive and laser sensors are effectively protected against shocks and scrap metal to ensure the machine’s long service life.

Performance of the Compression Box

The reinforced compression box allows light to medium-heavy scrap to be processed. It is covered with easily replaceable anti-abrasion wear plates.

In order to reduce cycle times and increase compaction efficiency, the compression wings have a specific kinematics that promotes optimal wrapping during compaction while the forces are maximised at the end of the box closing phase.

The significant overtravel of each wing reduces plate wear as the pusher moves forward and contributes to improving compaction efficiency.

The preload table increases production by loading scrap metal in hidden time.

Ease of Operation

The radio control has a display with which the operator can view all operating data at a glance.

A second screen on the control cabinet allows the operator to manage the operating data and anticipate maintenance operations. The electrical and hydraulic equipment is housed in a soundproof container and is immediately accessible for maintenance work.
