    How can I ensure that I am buying the right material handling equipment for my business?

    When picking out material handling equipment for your business, it's a good idea to think about a few key things. What kind of material are you dealing with? How heavy is it? Also, consider how far and how high you'll need to move it. Don’t forget to check the space you have for the equipment and think about how often you'll use it. And, of course, keep your budget in mind. Keeping these points in mind will really help you find the equipment that's just right for your needs. Plus, remember, our experts are always here to help you find the perfect machine!

    How does a scrap chopper function in material handling?
    Simply feed the scrap banding into the infeed funnel. The Scrap chopper material handling system will then engage, as the feed works grips the material and draws it into the path of the rotating knives. It efficiently chops the material until it's fully processed or until the operator disengages the feed works using the release lever.
