Industrial metal shredders for reducing light to moderate wads of metal turnings to flowable chips.
Reduce volumes by shredding metal turnings into flowable chips for higher value in scrap metal recycling. PRAB’s industrial metal shredders are a safe and cost-effective way to process all types of steel turnings and other metalworking scrap. They use less space for storage prior to scrap metal recycling and provide safer work areas. Available as a system integrated unit for use with chip processing/scrap removal equipment or as a stand-alone unit for volume reduction at the source.
The development of automated scrap removal systems begins with reducing the volume of metal turnings. Milling, turning, screw machining, and swiss machining operations all produce waste that varies in size, length, hardness, and configuration depending on the tool, operation, and material characteristics. The first step in this operation is using industrial metal shredders to create flowable chips from metal turnings to facilitate scrap metal recycling.
PRAB’s Industrial Metal Shredders are available as a system integrated unit for use with chip processing/scrap removal systems or as a stand-alone unit for volume reduction at the source (see options tab for more details). Some of the other features of this unit include:

System-Integrated Shredder (SMD)
PRAB’s System-integrated (SMD) line of industrial metal shredders are efficient solutions for turnings volume reduction of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Units are integrated into complete chip processing/scrap metal recycling systems to provide size reduction of scrap prior to separating fluid from chips for sending to recycle. The quiet, energy-saving dual shafts operate by ripping and tearing turnings into manageable, shovel-grade chips for further processing. Available in 6 standard sizes.
SMD12: 12″ (20 cm)
SMD18: 18″ (46 cm)
SMD24: 24″ (61 cm)
SMD30: 30″ (76 cm)
SMD36: 36″ (122 cm)
SMD48: 48″ (122 cm)
Stand-Alone Horizontal Axis Shredder (HAS)
PRAB’s stand-alone Horizontal Axis Shredder (HAS) is a cost-effective solution for scrap metal recycling to reduce volumes of ferrous and non-ferrous metal turnings machine-side. The quiet, energy-saving dual shafts operate by ripping and tearing turnings into manageable, shovel-grade chips for further processing and scrap collection.
