NEW YORK — All Metals Market Inc. has installed a Model 2000T Bonfiglioli Squalo mobile shear—which it calls the first of its kind in the United States—at its Fremont, Neb., recycling facility.

The shear, manufactured by Bologna, Italy-based ING Bonfiglioli SpA, is a 64-tonne, semiportable unit designed for heavy ferrous scrap metal.

"This shear saves us a considerable amount a time," All Metals Market president Kevin Yount told AMM. "We can put more material in, and with the slanted shear shoot we can process material as long as 45 feet in length. It enables us to bring material back to our facilities and efficiently shear it, as opposed to sending it to another facility for preprocessing.

"It’s currently shearing random lengths of unprepared tube of varying diameters; the tube comes out very flat with no pillowing," he said. "We’ve had it running for two weeks, and it’s already increasing our production capabilities."

"The installation expense is minimal compared to a stationary shear," said Rustin Ross, president of Chicago-based Alan Ross Machinery, the U.S. dealer for ING Bonfiglioli. "The foundation requirements are minimal and the unique vertical-feed mechanism will give All Metals Market a capability they didn’t have in the past." The 2000T is available in electric and diesel versions.

All Metals Market runs a full-service ferrous and nonferrous recycling operation on a 30-acre facility.
