Direct drives crush metals for recycling without wear

Recycling reusable materials is an important contribution to environmental protection. But before the materials from wrecked cars, household appliances and other products can be recycled again, they must first be crushed. Doing so results in extremely strong vibrations and abrupt shocks that affect the recycling facilities.

Hydraulic direct drives from Bosch Rexroth are often used for this. The Hägglunds motors which have a rugged and reliable design, do not require mechanical gears that are susceptible to wear and absorb shock loads that often occur in the process. Therefore they are prepared for many years of recycling reusable materials, without becoming scrap themselves.
