Ruf is a manufacturer of briquetting presses and world market leader in this field! 


Loose materials can be pressed into solid briquettes using a RUF briquetting system.

Our briquetting systems are used in a wide variety of sectors. They can press metals (such as aluminium and steel), wood and numerous other residual materials. Just as the materials which can be pressed are diverse, the advantages are also just as diverse!

More than 4,000 briquetters sold in over 100 countries make us the world market leader for hydraulic briquetting systems. At our site in Zaisertshofen in Bavaria which is over 10,000 m² we manufacture products for you which are “made in Germany”. On top of that, as a one-stop supplier, we will be at your side from planning, manufacturing and commissioning through servicing.

RUF briquetting presses are designed for continuous, heavy-duty use and are characterised by their long service life and low level of wear. They can be integrated into existing production plants and used in fully-automatic 24-hour operation.

We can run a test for your application with a free-of-charge and non-binding briquetting test at our factory or by you using a RUF rental press at yours.
