Electric Motor Recycling Machines

Our Electric Motor Recyclers Are Easy to Use and Built to Last

Inside discarded electric motors are valuable copper and aluminum components. These motors are constructed with sturdy shells of steel to protect the delicate wiring and parts within. Only very rugged, specialized equipment can split those casings to recover the inner metals. Solid Equipment Company’s electric motor recycling equipment from Bronneberg is capable of splitting even the toughest motors for recycling. Stop sending your motors overseas and make maximum profit. Call us today at (866) 511-7720 for more information or to place an order!

Electric Motor Recycler

How Do You Recycle Motors?

Typically, valuable copper and aluminum components are shrouded in tough cast iron or hard aluminum outer casings that, at first glance, seem impenetrable. With the electric motor recycler’s three-step process, the re-useable components can be rescued from the casings and internal structure to yield these highly valuable components.

What Is Our Electric Motor Recycling Equipment Like?

The electric motor recycling machine is capable of disassembling even the toughest motors and separating any and all valuable components.


  • The machine, with accessories specific to many processes, is 240V/480V-5.5 kW-powered
  • The dimensions of this system are 59” wide by 33.5” deep by 98.4” high
  • The equipment weighs approximately 3,300 lbs.

How Recycling Motors Works

In preparation for the mechanical recycling of the electric motor, outer pieces and attachments that can be removed should be unscrewed and put aside. This should reveal the actual external housing of the electric motor.

The Bronneberg industrial electric motor recycling machine employs a three-stage process to harvest the valuable material within.

Stage One

The operator initiates the separation and removal of the outer casing to expose the elements of the electric motor. With extreme high pressure exerted by the splitting apparatus, the aluminum or cast iron housing is cut on opposing sides to separate and peeled away to expose the stator. The anchor/rotor is then removed.

Stage Two

The second stage is the cleaving of the stator or transformer block into two equal pieces. By opening these up, copper coils are now exposed and ready for separation from the remaining parts and materials.

Stage Three

The third stage of the process involves pulling the copper wiring away from the surrounding metal through which it had been threaded by means of a complex hydraulic system. Teeth grip the winding and pushing rods push the housing away, leaving the copper wiring fully exposed and unattached.

The Result

A volume of valuable copper wiring cleanly separated from a pile of scrap metal and plastic that may also be recycled.
