New patented POWER-S system: tough and smart!

DANIELI HENSCHEL, the leading manufacturer of scrap metal processing equipment for both the steel industry and scrap metal dealers, is proud to present its latest technical innovation, the patented POWER-S system developed for its heavy-duty CIB shear range.

The range includes shears with cutting strengths ranging from 800 to 1,600 tons. Each comes equipped with a lateral precompression box 6, 8 or 10 meters long and features an articulated lid and lateral reducer on either side, which form the compression box. The lid covers and compresses the scrap, closing the box. The reducer compacts the scrap with a lateral movement towards the center of the box to prepare the product, which is then pushed by the reducing ram towards the shear head for the shearing operation itself.
The POWER-S system, patented in 2014, is installed on the lateral reducer of the precompression box, to process mixed metal scrap during treatment and ensure maximum density. This innovation makes versatile use of the lateral reducer activated by very high-capacity hydraulic jacks, which can be manipulated to make either a parallel or adjustable angle movement.
Unlike our competitors, who recommend one or the other of these options, but never both, at DANIELI HENSCHEL, our customers benefit from the versatility of a single machine capable of treating and densifying all types of metal scrap present on the market: mixed or block scrap, heavy and thick, or voluminous!

For example, during the same working cycle, the lateral reducer can start to compact the bulk scrap in the box using a parallel movement for rapid compression before switching in a fraction of a second to an adjustable angle movement when the presence of a voluminous block of scrap is detected. The lateral reducer then moves into the most appropriate position, following an angle of attack that is automatically defined, exercising maximum pressure upon a limited surface to break the block. This compacting pressure is impossible to achieve with a parallel movement, since the contact surface with the scrap is much too large.

However, the main strength of DANIELI HENSCHEL’s new patented POWER-S system lies in its versatile management of the movements of the lateral reducer and the lid. Customers can choose to operate the system automatically (resulting in an entirely automated working cycle) or manually, using either a radio-controlled device or the control booth.
Thanks to its innovative PLC program and hydraulic circuit management, the POWER-S lateral reducer always applies the maximum possible force exerted by the hydraulic jacks, whatever its position. As a result, DANIELI HENSCHEL is able to offer customers heavy-duty, high production capacity shears equipped with a compression box that offers a versatility/compacting pressure ratio unparalleled on the market today, and which will revolutionize the scrap metal treatment sector!
