Waste generated at a metal stamping operation can range from metal scrap, hydraulic fluids, lubricants, and machine oils to used parts, cleaning solutions and absorbents. If you are metalforming, PRAB can help find, and build, the right system for your process. Starting with a full-line of conveyors, PRAB scrap handling systems quickly and automatically remove die scrap metal, stamping scrap and various other metal scrap waste away from the point of production, automating the scrap handling process. Removing metal waste and spent fluids away from core operations allows for optimum production cycles, longer run times, increased worker safety, improved housekeeping and less fork lift traffic.

PRAB also offers a full-line of fluid filtration and industrial wastewater treatment systems for mitigating the safety and regulatory risks involved with some fluids used in stamping and die casting.

  • In the process of die casting, water used to cool and carry lubricants to their metal casting dies, may drip onto the plant floor. This wastewater may consist of various oils, hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and silicones that make it unsuitable for discharge to a sewer. Using a PRAB on-site recycling process can reduce waste generation by as much as 90%.
  • Stamping operations are required to comply with several regulations relating to the collection, transport, treatment, and disposal of the wastes they generate. A PRAB recycling unit can be used on the pressroom floor to treat water-based fluids such as aqueous cleaner baths, mass finishing fluids, press water, mop water, and synthetic coolants.

PRAB can help you find your solution for the metal and fluid waste produced in stamping and die casting operations. We offer a full selection of conveyor, fluid filtration, and wastewater treatment systems that can be custom designed to meet your needs. Contact us for your custom solution.
