Health & Safety
Automating scrap transfer minimizes safety risks by decreasing forklift traffic and scrap contact with operators.
Low Maintenance
PRAB conveyors have the industry’s leading reputation as being dependable low-maintenance equipment with long service lives. The In-floor trough conveyor offers no carryover issues, and only one moving part allowing for no operator involvement or contact with scrap.
PRAB conveyors are built tough to withstand the harsh conditions and materials moved in the metalworking industry.
PRAB’s load-out conveyor system provides even distribution of scrap into containers and maximizes container fill which leads to lower haul-away costs and get more value per container fill.

Load-out systems with shuttle conveyor maximizes scrap removal.

The PRAB shuttle conveyor load-out systems automate final load-out of stamping scrap, die scrap and machining scrap into large trailers or railcars to maximum container fill. Open frame construction provides personnel quick and safe access to carry over.

This scrap material conveyor features a traversing, bidirectional steel belt designed for final load-out of stamping and die scrap, as well as chip processing, into large trailers or railcars.
