Scrap Load-Out System installation in existing process.Before - Scrap load-out system at an Automotive supplier's location. Bins were filled unevenly and not to capacity. The load-out shoot had to be directed manually. The customer had to pay for the scrap recycler to make multiple pick-ups.




Redesigned PRAB Load-Out System with Shuttle Conveyor InstallationAfter - New scrap load-out system at the supplier's location is streamlined with an automated Orbital Shuttle System from PRAB. This new system fills bins evenly and to capacity and shifts to the second bin when the first is at capacity. The new PRAB system maximized scrap handling operations for both the Automotive supplier and the contracted scrap recycler.
