Metal chip briquetting machines for a wide range of metals & alloys
The value of metal residues can be greatly increased with our metal press machine. The metal chip briquetting machine is a real all-rounder and is suitable for pressing aluminium, steel, cast iron, copper and countless other metals. On the basis of the particular experience we have gained in the field of metal chip recycling, we are able to offer briquetting solutions which are individually tailored to customer-specific requirements.
- Recovery of expensive cooling lubricants
- Significant reduction in volume reduces transport costs
- More efficient chip logistics within the company
- Defined scrap quality
- Increased revenues from briquettes
- Reduced melting loss when re-melting
- Low maintenance costs & long service life
- Improved cleanliness at the workplace
Efficiently disposing of metal chips
Briquetting is a suitable treatment method for de-watering or de-oiling wet metal chips. During the briquetting process, our metal chip press recovers cooling lubricants that adhere to the damp metal chips. Consumption of these expensive cooling lubricants is thereby significantly reduced.
Depending on customer requirements, we offer metal chip presses for throughputs between 30 and 5,000 kg per hour. The required throughput and briquette density will have an influence on the choice of the briquette format.

“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."
