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.

The “S” type supported by two indipendent frames integrated and connected; one part supporting the shear and the compression box, the other part the engines and the hydraulic system. The machine includes a cover in tubular structure to protect the shear head and covers to protect the cylinders of the lids. The hydraulic system is covered and protected by a platform mounted longitudinally to the machine above the feeding cylinder, complete with cabin, ladder and handrails. “RAPID” does not need foundations. They are the evolution of the well-established and tested “swinging wing” compression system.
