Alligator Shears

Plum Creek offers industrial alligator shears designed primarily for the harsh confines of scrap yards. Alligator shears are important for facilities needing to prepare scrap to either add value by “cleaning” the material or to prepare the scrap for further processing. This improves the quality of the processed scrap. Our alligator shears are simple to operate and feature fast cycle times while maintaining a high cutting force for tough scrap material such as: steel, bar, wire, cable, plates, tubes and other mixed metal products. Our shears range from capacities as low as 27 tons of force and a 10” blade length up to 90 tons of force with a 16” blade length. All alligator shears that Plum Creek offers are designed and manufactured in the United States, allowing us to provide the best customer support on the market for warranty, parts and technical assistance.

Scrap Choppers

Our Scrap Choppers are designed to efficiently chop just about any type of linear scrap material down to pieces just a few inches long. Our choppers can process anything from plastic strapping to heavy duty ACSR cable. Un-chopped scrap is hard to bale and usually ends up being a waste of valuable dumpster space for most companies. Most scrap producers and recyclers agree – chopping scrap at the “point of generation” (POG) is the best possible solution. Some typical applications include:

  • Plastic and Steel Strapping
  • Insulated and Non-Insulated Wire and Cable
  • Baling Wire
  • ACSR Cable
  • Tube and Pipe
  • Bandsaw Blades

Adding components like Vibratory Conveyors, Crossbelt Magnets, and Magnetic Pulley Conveyors, Plum Creek can design and engineer turnkey systems for material like ACSR. All systems are completely customizable and can be expandable down the road. Contact us today to let us help you with your scrap chopping application.
