Plant for the Industrial Manufacturer Independent Disposal and Utilization of Old Vehicles

For a trend-setting old car utilization new beginnings are necessary for the dismantling under economically reasonable conditions. A firm for car recycling has taken into operation a manufacturer independent line disassembly plant with an output of 15.000 cars/a and a depth disassembly. The disassembly times could be reduced by application of a so called manipulator by the factor 4 in relation to the manual disassembly. With this division technology an improved type specification is reached, which increases the utilization possibilities. For core scrap iron from the engine and gear units clearly higher prices can be achieved than for the usual body scrap iron.
