Patrick Groth Foundry man­ager at HMT Höfer Met­all Tech­nik GmbH & Co. KG, Ger­many

“The RUF ma­chines have been work­ing very re­li­ably since their com­mis­sion­ing. They are well-en­gi­neered and highly rec­om­mend­able.”

Johann Dietl Head of CNC man­u­fac­tur­ing at Zoll­ner, Ger­many

"We are thor­oughly sat­is­fied with this equip­ment and are con­sid­er­ing an ex­pan­sion of its use."

David Kubis Order pro­cess­ing and pur­chas­ing at Al­cutec, Ger­many

"This is the per­fect so­lu­tion to our han­dling and space prob­lems. And the waste alu­minium in the com­pact bri­quette shape – largely cleaned of the cool­ing lu­bri­cant emul­sion – achieves a higher profit when sold on ." 

Markus Weber Pro­duc­tion Leader GFC Antrieb­sSys­teme GmbH, Ger­many

"The bri­quet­ting sys­tem works com­pletely with­out prob­lems and had al­ready amor­tised it­self after two years.”  

 

Stephan Diehl Ex­ec­u­tive SWG Met­al­lver­ar­beitung und Mon­tagetech­nik GmbH, Ger­many

“We are very sat­is­fied with the RUF Bri­quet­ting sys­tem.  The in­vest­ment has def­i­nitely paid off.” 

Georg Reuss Ex­ec­u­tive Georg Reuss, Ger­many

"First and fore­most I am im­pressed by the good price-per­for­mance ratio, the qual­ity and the re­li­a­bil­ity of the ma­chines. Be­sides I truly ap­pre­ci­ate the ex­cel­lent per­sonal re­la­tion­ship I have ex­pe­ri­enced with the fam­ily busi­ness and their Se­nior Di­rec­tor Hans Ruf from day one."

 

Rolf Peter Leuchtmann Mas­ter Crafts­man Final Ma­chin­ing De­part­ment, Georg Fis­cher Au­to­mo­tive Foundry, Ger­many

"The RUF bri­quet­ting press has been gen­er­at­ing prof­its since day one, thanks to its good price-per­for­mance ratio, an ap­pro­pri­ate fi­nanc­ing plan and the sav­ings it makes pos­si­ble."

Lena Kozmenkova Ex­ec­u­tive SIA RMP, Latvia

"Our col­lab­o­ra­tion with com­pany RUF has started in 2002 and has been suc­cess­ful through all these years. RUF is not just a world known ma­chin­ery pro­ducer name and the leader in bri­quet­ting tech­nolo­gies mar­ket. RUF is your trust­ful busi­ness part­ner as it has been a re­li­able and sup­port­ing part­ner for us dur­ing both – pe­ri­ods of the sales peaks and dur­ing mar­ket de­pres­sion. It’s our luck to have the same busi­ness phi­los­o­phy with our main busi­ness part­ner – the RUF com­pany. When both of you have the same aim, you achieve it faster!" 

Wayne Carracher Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Re­cy­cling Tech­nolo­gies Group Pty Ltd Aus­tralia

"We do not have one un­sat­is­fied cus­tomer with a RUF ma­chine – and we have sold some 40 sys­tems here in Aus­tralia and New Zealand. That in it­self speaks vol­umes for the RUF com­pany and its equip­ment. In our opin­ion the RUF bri­quette press can­not be matched from a per­for­mance basis. Al­though it is more ex­pen­sive than most com­pet­ing ma­chines from a cap­i­tal cost point of view, the on­go­ing trou­ble free per­for­mance and main­te­nance of the RUF ma­chines put them well ahead of the op­po­si­tion."

Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose briquetting?

Briquetting is the ideal and sustainable alternative for a more efficient handling of production residues. By reducing their volume, you save space, as well as time and costs for handling, storage and transport, while also earning higher revenues! Furthermore, by briquetting metal chips, you recover expensive cooling lubricants and potentially achieve a higher smelting yield.

How do I find the right briquetting machine?

We have many years of experience in briquetting which means that our experts are well-qualified to provide you with professional advice in choosing the right briquette press. We work with you to identify your individual requirements on the basis of the material in question and the production conditions. This then allows us to offer you custom-made briquetting machines or even complete briquetting solutions.

How is a test pressing done? Is it done free of charge?

Test pressing is done free of charge and without any obligation on your part, and is carried out in our Technical Centre using your own material. At your request, you can be present at the test pressing. The results are important for the choice of the briquetting machine – for example, briquette thickness, residual moisture, durability to withstand handling, the amount of cooling lubricants recovered, etc. The procedure: Here.
