WEIMA at ISRI 2023

Come see what's new from WEIMA at booth #2216!

On April 17th-20th, WEIMA is exhibiting its industrial shredding and compressing machinery for scrap recycling at ISRI 2023 in Nashville, Tennessee! The scrap and recycling industries experience specific challenges and rely on time-tested solutions and industry know-how. WEIMA will be there to talk about the many benefits of size reduction machinery as it pertains to recyclable materials in a modern manufacturing world.

The WEIMA team is headed to Nashville with a TH 1500 M briquette press matrix, which was designed to transform loose chips, turnings, or shavings into dense briquettes measuring 150mm x 60mm. This machine is similar to the WEIMA TH 800 M briquette press, which creates round briquettes with a diameter of 80mm. Both machines are offered with dual discharge for maximum throughput, as well as a catch pan and a swivel PLC control. The catch pan below the machine collects any cutting fluid that may be pressed from the briquettes. A sump/pump option can return this fluid to the manufacturing process, adding extra value to the manufacturer.

The TH-series machinery can compress a variety of other loose materials as well, including paper dust, wood shavings, and more!

The benefits of metal briquetting

Loose chips and turnings from the manufacturing of metal products can be bulky, sharp, and hard to manage. Through briquetting it is possible to compress those materials into a manageable size and shape with minimal handling involved. This increases safety, optimizes space through easy storage, and makes the material easier to recycle or smelt. Recyclers often prefer to receive scrap metal in this compressed form, because burn-off is decreased and its value is maximized.

The right tool for the job

Metal is a valuable material that can be easily recycled. Transforming this often-bulky material from large to small is an ideal first step in the recycling process.

WEIMA machinery can shred light metals such as aluminum, magnesium, copper, brass, bronze, and steel milling waste. Before bulky materials can be further processed, they usually have to be shredded to a homogenous material size. The WMS 60 is one of the machines that optimally shreds light alloys for further processing or recycling. WEIMA will have a WMS 60 on display in the booth for ISRI attendees to view.

Watch it shred

Metal waste comes in so many sizes and shapes. It originates from many manufacturing processes, which means every application needs a different size reduction solution.


More than metal recycling

Attendees are free to use our cutting-edge touchscreen display at our booth to discover more about the machinery on display as well as WEIMA's other recycling capabilities. The possibilities don't stop at metal-- WEIMA is able to shred and briquette a variety of materials, and we have the portfolio to prove it. Come see for yourself!
