LEFORT America introduces towable shear to U.S. and Canadian markets
LEFORT America has introduced its first U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) approved towable 660-ton shear/baler/logger to the United States and Canadian markets.
“The SB660A is more advanced, more productive and more reliable than anything on the market. It is every scrap business’s portable processing dream.”
The SB660A is engineered to meet the needs of scrap businesses with multiple locations, those that deal with outside contracting work or those that work on demolition projects, according to the company.
LEFORT also recently announced that the company has entered into an exclusive marketing agreement with Caterpillar Inc.:
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
