Oak Cliff Recycling chooses Metso N Series Inclined Shear to speed-up production

Metso Corporation's press release on October 25, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. EET

Oak Cliff Recycling has selected a Metso solution to maximize metal processing efficiency at the company's wide-ranging recycling unit in Texas, USA. With Metso N Series Inclined Shear (NIS), Oak Cliff Recycling will be able to accelerate material processing of bulky, oversized scrap. 

"Metso NIS has the design and ability to process difficult materials quickly and efficiently. Cutting cycle times are fast, and the design of the moving floor in getting the scrap metal to the blades removes the added time of folding and compressing in a box," says Benjie Smith, owner, Oak Cliff Recycling.

The Texan recycling company has struggled with unwieldy materials in conventional style shears that slow down production.  Oversized and often intractable material hampered recycling processes, but the challenges were detected and solved with the help of Metso experts.

Scott Holder, Regional Sales Manager, from Metso states "The wide-ranging Metso N Series Inclined Shear was the perfect solution to Oak Cliff's processing inefficiencies".

Robust and reliable shearing with easy installation 

The Metso NIS is a state-of-the-art gravity feed shear that can accept long material and large bulky scrap; it is available with cutting forces from 600 to 1250 tonnes. A self-contained and is easy to install unit offers exceptional performance on heavy melt scrap, auto bodies, steel mill scrap, miscellaneous shapes, pipe, plate, shipbreaking, railcar, demolition scrap, aluminum, and stainless steel materials.

Regardless of the size of business, big or small, N Series are at the forefront in providing the technology and services needed to ensure success. The N Series range is fully backed by Metso's worldwide service network. Service contacts are locally available to customers so that they have efficient direct support when required.
