Metal Sorting

One machine is all you need – for any application!

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Plant Control System to automatically optimize efficiency thereby increasing revenue
  • Recognition of objects e.g. coins, wires and others
  • Combination of object recognition, shape recognition, colour and elemental analysis (XRF)
  • Comprehensive new statistic database

From the beginning, REDWAVE has been the leader in XRF (X-ray Fluorescence) based sorting machines. Our worldwide customer base ranges from family owned shredder yards to multinational corporations and each one has fulfilled their specific needs in nonferrous sorting with the REDWAVE XRF/C.  But we are not just another equipment manufacturer.  Our expertise in nonferrous markets and ongoing relationships with our customer base has led to constant innovation in developing new sorting solutions based on customer requests.  As a global leader in plant solutions, we have designed and installed turnkey nonferrous sorting plants with input capacities up to 25 tons per hour that continuously produces a furnace ready product.  With over 100 XRF-machines operating and 20 years’ experience building plants REDWAVE is here to solve your nonferrous challenges, whether is a single machine or turnkey plant.
