Metal Pressing and Cutting

Application Requirement

Metal cutters and presses in a metal recycling facility are used to cut waste metal into small cuttings which can then be compressed into clean, dense, furnace ready materials. Metal recycling facilities feature some of the most dangerous processing system and machinery in industry and therefore, such machinery is extensively guarded and interlocked to ensure that operators and/or maintenance personnel can only gain entry once power to the machine has been isolated. Guard doors are fitted with mechanical door locks so that power to all moving parts has been isolated prior to opening the actual guard doors.
