Horizontal Axis Crushers

Reduce turnings at the source

PRAB Horizontal Axis CrusherThe implementation of automated scrap metal processing, begins with the volume reduction of metal turnings. The comprehensive focus on Chip Processing provides metalworking companies with a cost effective, automated, and safe way to process all types of metal scrap. The first step in this operation is to create flowable chips from metal turnings.

The Horizontal Axis Crusher processes low volumes of stringy and bulky metal turnings. The crusher is typically mounted on a stand or heavy-duty cart which fits on the discharge of the conveyor off the machining center.

PRAB's Horizontal Axis Crusher processes up to 300 lbs/hr (177 kg/hr), reduces up to 12 times the volume of scrap and increases CNC production. Reduce housekeeping by either attaching the crusher to your machines or use it as a freestanding unit.
