The recycler, who is already using many mobile shears, relied on a press wing scrap shear made by Copex to further develop his business. The REFLEX which is operational since a few days, has a cutting force of 750 US tons (650 metric tons), a 20 ft long box (6 meters), and a loading table to load scrap as a background task and save lots of time. The machine is capable to treat up to 20 tons per hour. The company Brick Recycling purchased the first “American” REFLEX750 scrap shear. The great satisfaction showed by this customer also established in New Jersey, certainly influenced Klein Recycling in their choice. The company Xpress Recycling, installed in Louisiana, opted for the mobile version of the REFLEX750. And Klein Recycling has now a version with loading table. Offering the widest range of press wing scrap shear/balers, Copex cover all applications in the scrap metal recycling industry, and offer the best service through his valuable partner ShearCore.  Copex and ShearCore will have a stand at ISRI in New Orleans - 22 to 27 April - and would be very happy to welcome you.   To know more about KLEIN RECYCLING: http://kleinrecycling.us/ To know more about SHEARCORE: www.shearcore.com To know more about ISRI: http://www.isri.org/about-isri/isri-events-and-education/events/2017/04/22/default-calendar/isri-convention-exposition-17#.WIsM31PhCUk)   Publishing date: February 2, 2017[Read more]]]> <![CDATA[COPEX sells a first PMM baling press in the sector of dehydrated alfalfa]]> http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/710-copex-sells-a-first-pmm-baling-press-in-the-sector-of-dehydrated-alfalfa.htm Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 GMT http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/710-copex-sells-a-first-pmm-baling-press-in-the-sector-of-dehydrated-alfalfa.htm Producing 35% of the domestic production of dehydrated alfalfa, LUZEAL is the first cooperative in the dehydration sector in France. The company process annually 140 000 tons of dehydrated “long-strand” alfalfa on their 5 sites. In order to upgrade their production line in Recy (51), LUZEAL choose the PMM800 which will increase production of bales from annually 30 000 tons to 40 000 tons. The first reason for COPEX to win the market was the high productivity of his innovative PMM balers. The PMM800 will be capable to press up to 30 tons per hour of alfalfa (“long-strand and pellets”). The produced bales will be put into storage before going to the consumption sites in France and abroad, making the minimization of storage and transport costs a crucial issue for the French company. For this issue COPEX had the opportunity to make a real difference with other manufacturers. Besides the fact that the bales produced have a maximal densification and perfect homogeneity, the PMM800 is the only machine in the market which offers the possibility to adjust bales size and maximize the loading rate of the Tautliners and 40’ High Cube containers used by LUZEAL for transport. More specifically the French cooperative will be capable to load 27 tons of alfalfa (“long-strand” mixed with pellets) per Tautliner and nearly 25 tons per container, which is a very good loading rate! Note that the machine will be equipped not with one but with two bale tying units to ensure a high throughput when the number of baling wires is important. The installation will be operational at the beginning of May when the cropping season will start. With this first reference in the agricultural sector, COPEX confirm that the range of PMM baling presses can really treat the widest range of compressible materials.    To know more about LUZEAL: http://www.luzeal.fr/HP/HpLuzealInternet.aspx   Publishing date: January 30, 2017[Read more]]]> <![CDATA[BAYLISS RECOVERY Ltd. orders a LIDEX1000 scrap shear to COPEX]]> http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/708-bayliss-recovery-ltd-orders-a-lidex1000-scrap-shear-to-copex.htm Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 GMT http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/708-bayliss-recovery-ltd-orders-a-lidex1000-scrap-shear-to-copex.htm After a first order for a COPEX scrap shear with compression by wings of 630 tons cutting force installed in 2011, BAYLISS RECOVERY Ltd. renews his confidence in COPEX by purchasing a LIDEX1000 which will meet his increasing needs.

The owner of the French recycling company, François Vialis, was seeking to increase quality of the sheared products as well as production capacities. His choice fall quite naturally on the lidex 1700t. This machine which has a cutting width of 1000 mm and a box width reduced to 700 mm can process scrap and metals of very diverse types, such as oxy-cuttings, railway rails, as well as bales of concrete iron, demolition scrap...  « My father owned a Copex shear, I had purchased myself a Copex 1350 t sixteen years ago. This machine gave me a lot of satisfaction, so I decided that it was time to buy a new Copex scrap shear for the next generation », comments François VIALIS, the owner of Fers et Métaux. The large experience of Copex in the design and construction of « huge » shears was very important in this project (a scrap shear of 2200 tons is still being operated near Angoulême and a 1750 tons machine was installed close to Tarbes).  One of the major innovations of the Lidex 1700 t: through the automatic cycle, the time necessary for loading scrap has been considerably reduced.  « Once I have completed the loading of the 8 m long pre-lod table, using three grabs, I can start the automatic cycle from the radio remote control and I don’t have to care about the machine anymore. I can load trucks or sort out scrap… » explains the Copex machine operator at Fers et Métaux. Thanks to the oversized lid which covers more than 80% of the compression box, Copex offers the Lidex as the only machine in the world having a full automatic cycle. This cycle includes the dropping of the scrap from the pre-load table into the compression box, the closing of the box, the pre-compression of the log and the complete cutting cycle. Combined to sturdiness and high productivity, the range of Lidex scrap shears of new generation has exceptional compacting and shearing efficiency.  Since they were launched into the market in 2011, the Lidex scrap shears were encountering great success. Fifteen units with either 800 tons, 1000 tons or 1300 tons shearing force, were installed by Copex around the world.                 [Read more]]]> <![CDATA[New range of Multi-Materials baling Presses (PMM) launched by Copex during POLLUTEC 2014]]> http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/539-new-range-of-multi-materials-baling-presses-pmm-launched-by-copex-during-pollutec-2014.htm Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 GMT http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/539-new-range-of-multi-materials-baling-presses-pmm-launched-by-copex-during-pollutec-2014.htm The press called PMM is a fully automatic baling press producing homogeneous and highest density bales (up to 1 t/m³). Through the specific patented compacting process the baling and bale tying/ejection movements are dissociated from each other. Combined to a high performance hydraulics, the simultaneous running of both functions brings high productivity gains up to 50%. This new range of baling presses was designed to optimize productivity with reduced running costs and a compact construction (hydraulics fully integrated under the machine). No specific civil engineering works are required and a simple electrical inlet is necessary to install the machine. The range includes four versions: PMM500, PMM800, PMM1200 et PMM1600.  [Read more]]]> <![CDATA[COPEX at POLLUTEC in Lyon]]> http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/465-copex-at-pollutec-in-lyon.htm Fri, 10 Apr 2015 00:00:00 GMT http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/465-copex-at-pollutec-in-lyon.htm [Read more]]]> <![CDATA[Copex delivered a mobile shear baler REFLEX 900 t to Metallo-Chimique in Belgium]]> http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/463-copex-delivered-a-mobile-shear-baler-reflex-900-t-to-metallo-chimique-in-belgium.htm Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 GMT http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/463-copex-delivered-a-mobile-shear-baler-reflex-900-t-to-metallo-chimique-in-belgium.htm Treating a big variety of metals and complex secondary raw materials, and refining them into new metal products for the metal consuming industry, Metallo-Chimique always put their faith on the best available technologies to confirm their leading position in the recycling of metals and metal compounds. That is exactly the reason why they chose a REFLEX mobile shear baler from Copex. Metallo-Chimique was convinced that the innovative guiding of the slide-block, coming from the heavy scrap shears manufactured by Copex, was the best for them. Through the ideally balanced distribution of the cutting strains, the reliability of the shear frame is considerably increased. Copex is the only manufacturer using this technology on a range of mobile shear balers. The mobility of the machine was another relevant factor for Metallo-Chimique who need to move their scrap shear daily on their own site to get closer to their various stocks of materials. That is why Copex designed and manufactured full wheel protections to protect the road part of the machine, and especially the tires. REFLEX shear balers can be delivered in mobile version with 3, 4 or 6 road axles, or in semi-mobile version with optional hydraulic legs allowing fast and easy loading of the machine onto a low loader.[Read more]]]> <![CDATA[COPEX at Metal-Expo in Russia]]> http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/461-copex-at-metal-expo-in-russia.htm Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 GMT http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/461-copex-at-metal-expo-in-russia.htm [Read more]]]> <![CDATA[New Mobile Scrap Shear REFLEX]]> http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/416-new-mobile-scrap-shear-reflex.htm Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 GMT http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/416-new-mobile-scrap-shear-reflex.htm After the new range of mobile scrap shears called REFLEX was launched by COPEX in autumn 2013, the first unit in version 900 t and 7 m box was installed on CFM Industrie site in Brive-la-Gaillarde (France), to the entire satisfaction of the customer. COPEX decided to integrate in the range of mobile scrap shears the same technologies as for the "heavy" scrap shears with side compression LIDEX. This had never been done before on mobile scrap shears: The REFLEX is the only machine in the market which offers a slide block guiding similar to a stationary machine in order to provide high cutting performances over time with maintenance costs divided by 3, The perfectly balanced distribution of the cutting efforts considerably increased the reliability of the shear frame. A special attention was focused on the user-friendly operation through the significant reduction of operational noise (superior sound-proofing technologies, acoustic panels) and easy access to the parts and control elements (large openable panels, platform). The REFLEX is available in 500t, 650t and 900t cutting force. Achieving excellent cutting performances, the machine is also perfectly suitable for the production of high quality bales. The REFLEX scrap shear can be delivered in mobile version with 3, 4 or 6 axles, or as semi-mobile with optional hydraulic legs. With this new scrap shear, COPEX confirms his capability to imagine innovative solutions for the recycling industry.[Read more]]]> <![CDATA[Start of Production of a New LIDEX Scrap Shear at Dengasc et Fils]]> http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/3-start-of-production-of-a-new-lidex-scrap-shear-at-dengasc-et-fils.htm Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 GMT http://www.copex.com/en/actualites/3-start-of-production-of-a-new-lidex-scrap-shear-at-dengasc-et-fils.htm The French family business who were operating a LIDEX1000t scrap shear for 8 years, wished to have a bigger machine to be able to proceed easier especially bulky products. Thanks to a 8 m long box instead of the previous 6 m, the French company can cut long steel bars, pylons or steel frame products without having to previously process them by means of a blowtorch. This represents a high increase of productivity. Dengasc et Fils were owning a mobile car baler. The new LIDEX 1000t has been purchased to replace two other scrap shears type CVB500t and CVB 1000t. Since the introduction of the LIDEX in 2011, LIDEX scrap shear is a big commercial success. It is to now the only machine existing in the market which offers a complete automatic cycle including compression and cutting. With the LIDEX, productivity increase is of 25 %.[Read more]]]>
