A-600 E Alligator Shears

For reducing and cutting large metal pieces into more manageable segments for industrial recycling purposes, the powerful Bronneberg Alligator Shear A-600 E from Solid Equipment Company is an excellent option. Safe to operate and highly adjustable, the A-600 E will cut all types of metal in nearly any format or shape, with 250 tons of force capability. The equipment is compact and durable. The A-600 E Bronneberg model is designed to handle the toughest jobs, including:

  • High tensile strength
  • Oversized pieces
  • Stainless steel
  • Titanium

We put our shear against any high-powered alligator shear. The pure strength of this machine must be witnessed in person.

Using an Alligator Shear to Reduce Scrap Metal for Recycling

Recycling is not just an activity that’s great for the environment. Metals can be reused to make new products, and they can be found in:

  • Demolished buildings
  • Automobiles
  • Discarded equipment
  • Other sources

Given that amount of cost and energy to reuse recycled metals is far less than the cost of manufacturing and maintaining with virgin materials, recycled metals have great potential value. But these usually must be reduced to a more transportable form and size before that value can be extracted.

To cut and reduce large volumes of metal material of varying shape and type into smaller pieces, a Bronneberg A-600 E alligator shear a machine that is:

  • Versatile
  • Powerful
  • Efficient

For extra heavy-duty operations, more robust A-600 E alligator shear components are available with a larger oil tank and oil cooler to accommodate heavier and larger pieces.

How the All-Electric A-600 E Works

Necessary safeguards have been built into the equipment because high levels of force are generated by the A-600 E alligator shear to cut through the toughest materials. The controls are easy to read and prominent. A specially-designed, heavy-duty work table adjoins the equipment to allow the operator to feed the metal piece into the shear at his or her preferred cutting angle.

The alligator shear has fully-adjustable, four-sided reversible cutting blade that can be set for any size of scrap you want to cut. When the cutting cycle begins, a hydraulically-operated hold-down arm securely locks the piece in place as the cutting arm descends to shear the piece at the desired angle in a clean fashion. A readily accessible emergency stop can be activated at any time during the process to halt the equipment in place if readjustment is required or a potential safety risk arises.

The cutting area of the all-electric Bronneberg A-600 E is virtually surrounded by adjustable safety barriers to minimize the possibility of flying pieces and unintended accident.
