Scrap Handlers; past, present and future

Material handlers for scrap processing applications, AKA scrap handlers, over the last decade have become one of the key pieces of equipment for metals and other material recyclers around the world. Very often, these machines are found to be excellent replacements for excavators that have traditionally been used by scrap, auto and other recyclers. While excavators are designed primarily for their intended use in earth moving and construction applications, dedicated material handlers are specifically designed for – as the name implies – handling materials. Of course, in the recycling industry loading, unloading, sorting, cutting, stockpiling and moving materials is central to the process.
