We have now completed the build of the latest weapon in our battle against climate change, the Leimbach 1400 electric shear. Costing £2.5m, the fully electric shear is nothing short of a work horse capable of cutting through large volumes of scrap metal quickly and efficiently, processing upwards of 500 tonnes of ferrous and non-ferrous metal a day.
The real beauty of this machine is that it is capable of processing all shapes and sizes of material (including oversize) which was previously quite challenging to process on site. The shear’s design also allows for precise cutting of scrap metal which can improve the quality of the end product and minimise waste.
We are thrilled that this is now fully installed at our site. Timelapse videos of the build are shown below.
