The WEIMA TH 1500 M

At the upcoming event in Las Vegas, WEIMA is excited to share more about the TH 1500 M briquette press. This machine is specifically engineered for transforming loose chips, turnings, or shavings into compact briquettes measuring 150mm x 60mm. The TH 1500 M is a heavy-duty, matrix-style briquetting machine designed for industrial use that can process a wide range of materials, including metal, paper, and wood into high-density briquettes. Combined with a large hopper and duo-style discharge, the TH 1500 M is equipped for efficient and continuous operation.


Why Metal Compression?

Metal compression offers a multitude of advantages, making it a highly beneficial process in metal product manufacturing. Turnings and birds nests generated during production are typically unwieldy, sharp, and challenging to manage.


However, through compression technology, these materials can be transformed into a more manageable size and shape. This not only enhances safety in handling but also optimizes storage space and streamlines the recycling or smelting process. Many recyclers prefer to receive scrap metal in its compressed form due to its reduced burn-off and increased value, underscoring the significance of metal compression in the industry.

Alongside briquetting, the WEIMA C.200 is another robust machine crafted to compress metal shavings or grinding sludge, effectively separating and reclaiming cooling lubricants, emulsions, and other oils. These retrieved liquids can then be reintegrated into the metal shaving process or sold for reuse.


More than just Compressing

Recycling metal efficiently begins with size reduction. With WEIMA machinery, like the WMS 60, shredding light metals such as aluminum, magnesium, copper, brass, bronze, and steel milling waste is easily achievable. Before undergoing further processing, bulky materials are shredded to ensure a uniform size. The WMS 60 stands out among WEIMA's machines for its efficiency in shredding light alloys for recycling or subsequent processing. Its sloped hopper allows for any cutting fluids to drain from the hopper.
