The efficiency of manufacturing companies who regularly machine steel and stainless steel is influenced by more than just the application of productive machining centers. The methods of dealing with the resulting steel chips also carry huge potential. This potential can be tapped by the application of high-quality briquetting systems, like those manufactured in various dimensions and performance classes by RUF Maschinenbau, Zaisertshofen. The modern hydraulic presses for steel and stainless steel chips operate with a specific pressing power of up to 5,000 kg/cm2 and achieve throughput performances of between 30 and 3,000 kg/hour.

ZF Friedrichshafen saves large sums in two plants and reduces its environmental impact with RUF briquetting presses.

In its plants in Passau and neighbouring Thyrnau, ZF Friedrichshafen AG has recovered around 1.75 million litres of valuable oil in the past twelve years by pressing grinding sludge in RUF briquetting presses. Adding to the environmental benefits, there are great economic advantages: The two presses have returned their investment in half a year and about two years, respectively.
