IMTS 2018: WEIMA Highlights Metal Briquettes

WEIMA brings briquette presses and shredders to the IMTS 2018 with the environment-- and savings-- in mind.

The Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT) hosts the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) every two years, and this year, WEIMA will be there with briquette machines in tow!

Since the addition of our metal briquetting machinery, WEIMA has been focused on reaching those manufacturers with metal scrap– especially light alloys like aluminum, magnesium, etc.– to show them how to maximize their time and money during the recycling process. Manufacturers in this industry are constantly trying to find new ways to reuse valuable cutting fluids while keeping scrap disposal costs low. By compacting swarf, shavings, or turnings, those cutting fluids are removed and pushed into a tray, where the fluid is collected for reuse.

The briquettes that are created can either be sold or recycled. This decreases an operation’s environmental footprint while maximizing savings throughout the process. 

WEIMA will be exhibiting at booth #121417 in the East Building, Level 2. A WEIMA TH 800 M briquette press will be on display! IMTS runs from September 10-15 at the McCormick Center in Chicago, Illinois, and is a much-anticipated event across the industry.

There will also be a full chip processing system on display in the Jorgenson booth (#121107) including a WP 614 HD briquette press and a WEIMA single-shaft shredder. Click here to access the IMTS floor plan and to add us to your list of booths to visit!
