Binder+Co AG

Binder+Co is a unique enterprise in the world of processing. After all, we offer six elementary processing steps from one single source: comminuting – screening – wet processing – thermal processing – sorting – packaging and palletizing. For many decades now, Binder+Co has supplied individual systems and overall processing plants to the mining and recycling industries. In doing so, we have always placed great value on novel ideas.

Sensor-based sorting for metals

Metals are not only valuable but also expensive materials. Therefore, their recycling is gaining more and more relevance. The cost benefits compared to primary extraction are significant, above all regarding energy consumption.

However, recycling only makes sense financially if it is carried out at a high level of quality. This is the case if the metals are thoroughly separated for smelting. And that is exactly what Binder+Co. does. Apart from the 1693 sorting systems installed worldwide, we are distinguished by the many years of experience in the material conditioning (screening) of metals from shredder light fractions and heavy shredder fractions.

The unsorted crude material is fed into the machine and illuminated with light sources. Different sensors such as colour or near infrared cameras recognise the material type and colour. The valves mounted on the blow-off strip are actuated at just the right time and the foreign material and defined colours are blown off into the corresponding sorting paths.
