Once steel strapping is removed from loads, it gets thrown aside. Steel strapping is especially a risky material, when these serpentine pieces are handled or stuffed into a waste bin placing employees in danger.
With strategically placed sweed choppers, employees handle strap only once to put it into the choppers. These choppers cut the strap into small pieces that drop safely into a collection bin.
Chopped steel strap is sold as scrap metal which also dramatically reduces waste dumping charges. The revenue can offset the purchase or rent of a chopper.
Essentially, sweed chopping machines provide immediate OH & S benefits and a loss-prevention program.
The new sweed model 300 is available from Australian Warehouse Solutions .
