Chambéry, France — The Belvtorchermet site in Urechcha, Republic of Belarus, has hosted the official commissioning of the new CIB 1000-8 L Danieli Henschel shear. Daniel Damart, Managing Director of Danieli Henschel, presided over this inauguration by presenting the keys of the brand new shears to Alexey Anoshko, Managing Director of Belvtorchermet, a state association owned by state holding company BMZ, a Belarussian metallurgical factory.
„The installation of this impressive shear on the Urechcha site is a real event for us. This strategic decision was made in 2012, with the aim of optimising the supply of scrap metal to BMZ in Zhlobin, from this region of southern Belarus,“ explained A. Anoshko. „We plan to double this site’s production, so that the Minsk recycling site can be relieved of some of its workload and we can reorganise the whole scrap supply logistics system.“
After draconian selection process
At the signing of the shear commissioning order, the Chief Engineer of Belvtorchermet, Mr Myadeletzev, stressed that the choice of equipment manufacturer had been far from simple: „After the launch of the call for tenders, the committee received a very large number of proposals, so it then applied a draconian selection process based solely on the criteria defined by the specification. We finally chose Danieli Henschel because its equipment perfectly satisfied all the requirements of the specification, both technically and economically.“
Danieli Henschel scrap shears from the CIB range, with lateral reducer and a loading bucket, are the most suitable for the shearing of heavy, bulky scrap metal. The scrap metal has already been loaded into the loading bucket, and is then poured into the 8-metre box. The lateral reducer and the cover are then activated to reduce the scrap metal and prepare it for cutting. With help from the pusher ram, the compressed scrap is conveyed towards the head, which shears it easily thanks to its 1000-ton piston. With its 210-tonne mass, this shear can operate at a production capacity of up to 45 t/h.
CIB 1000-8: Downtime significantly reduced
This CIB 1000-8 has a blade hydraulic support system. Hydraulic clamping and release make for quick and easy replacement of the fixed blades, saving time and further rationalising the use of the shears. For the operator’s convenience, the shear was supplied with a cab equipped with a comfortable armchair, ergonomic joysticks, and an additional screen showing the operator the position of all shear mechanisms in real time. The week-long operator training course combined with the remote information module make it very easy to diagnose the cause of problems very quickly and accurately, which means that shear downtime is significantly reduced.
This shear is the second Danieli Henschel machine that Belvtorchermet has bought. The first is a pre-shredder installed upstream from their shredder to feed it a regular supply of material from which practically all potentially explosive elements have been removed. „Danieli Henschel would like to thank Belvtorchermet for working with us and for the friendly atmosphere that reigned during this partnership“, declared D. Damart. „I must say that the shear we are inaugurating today – and I choose my words carefully – is currently the most technologically advanced machine of its type on the world market.“
