Your partner for expertise in a wide variety of applications in recycling technology

Scrap shears & scrap baling presses

Short cycle times, large forces and extremely high speeds: scrap shears and baling presses are faced with a variety of challenges. To help you put demolition debris and single-origin press remnants back into the economic cycle, we support you with efficient drives as well as solutions for tank optimisation and cycle time calculation. All from a single supplier.

Briquetting press

To dispose of loose chips and dust in a space-saving way, they are compacted and pressed into a briquette shape. This is how briquetting presses make a valuable contribution to optimising transport and storage. We support you on the way to sustainable and energy efficient operation of your briquetting presses with installation space-optimised components and innovative drive concepts.

Baling presses & channel baling presses

Baling presses and channel baling presses are used to reduce material volumes by up to 95% and lower transport costs. Paper, cardboard, film, PET and many other materials can be put back into the economic cycle. To ensure that your presses are equipped to the best possible standard, HYDAC supplies you with custom solutions anywhere in the world.

Press containers

At logistics companies, recycling centres and discount stores: press containers efficiently compress all recyclable and waste materials. When developing our products, the advantages for our customers are our top priority. For example, we can facilitate low filling heights thanks to compact drive units with installation space-optimised tanks. We work with you to find the optimal solution for your press container.
