Turkey opens its doors to AKROS HENSCHEL

Izmir Demir Celik Sanayi A.S. is a major Turkish steelworks, a subsidiary of Şahin-Koç Inc., with annual production of 1,320,000 tonnes of billets and 900,000 tonnes of concrete reinforcing rods. Following on from its investments in 2006 and 2007 aimed at improving quality, productivity, and the technology used, IDC chose Akros Henschel to supply lateral compression hydraulic scrap shears for its scrap metal processing requirements. This strategic decision means that IDC now has more freedom to choose the types of scrap to be used in its steel production process. Whether the scrap is imported or from the local market, such as ship decommissioning sites, IDC can now increase its productivity by improving the density of the scrap loaded into its furnace.

The Akros Henschel CIB 1600-15 L scrap shears were commissioned in February 2011. This machine has the highest cutting force and the largest production capacity available in Turkey. With a 730 kW power rating, a 10 m long bed and 1600 t cutting force, the shears operate in round-the-clock shifts and provide a production capacity that can exceed 70 t/h according to the type of scrap.

IDC opens a door to the Turkish market, where there are as yet very few scrap processing machines, and is reaffirming its desire to remain a pioneer and always at the cutting edge of its sector.
This June, Akros Henschel will also equip Italian customer Bandinelli with 1600 t scrap shears, which will be the most powerful lateral box scrap shears in operation in Italy.
Akros Henschel thus confirms its well-established expertise in the design and manufacture of high-capacity machines. A 3000-tonne Akros Henschel machine has been in service for many years at River Metals in the USA; these must be the world’s biggest scrap shears!
