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.

It is most often used to feed other chip processing equipment, such as a shredder or wringer, because of its ability to separate […]
The United States the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that good housekeeping in the workplace not only creates a cleaner, safer workplace, but also promotes positive behaviors, habits and attitudes. However, to fully reap the benefits, the administration recommends that good housekeeping be maintained throughout the workday. This helps to avoid the physical consequences […]
For an industry characterized by technological advancements, many aerospace manufacturers are slow to elevate waste management and recovery processes. Too often, these processes are considered secondary to production. That approach will gradually cut into an organization’s bottom line, as environmental compliance becomes more tightly regulated and the shift to the circular economy accelerates. Aerospace manufacturing facilities have the potential to […]
