A concentration of technology and experience, strength and speed, robustness and simplicity of construction, reliability and safety. “RAPID” shears&balers are synonymous with production, low consumption, high performance. “RAPID” shears&balers are designed for heavy duty work, for those who demand quality, clean and high density scrap metal. Machines adapt to HEAVY-DUTY, suitable to shear  particular consistency scrap (demolition, production scraps, stamping and rolling trimmings, pantographed sheet metal scraps, reinforced concrete rod, rails…).

“RAPID” comes in two different configurations, “H” and “S” type.

“H” type is a compact version, one-piece structure self-supporting frame, it is easy to install and reposition. In the rear part of the machine, on the opposite side of the shear, there is structure that supports the longitudinal compression cylinder and the diesel/ electric engine, the electrical and hydraulic system necessary for its autonomous operation.

The rear structure is protected by a thick steel sheet cover. It is also included a cover in tubular structure to protect the shear head and covers to protect the cylinders of the lids. The “RAPID” shear&baler is equipped with the original TAURUS compression box “swinging wings” system SBxc (patented). The “RAPID” shear&baler can also make bales that are automatically ejected.
