Export Success at IFAT 2018
Recycling equipment, designed and manufactured in the UK, proved to be a big hit at the international recycling and waste exhibition IFAT, held in Munich, Germany between the 14th and 18th May 2018. On the joint Master Magnets and Bunting Magnetics Europe stand was a working production-sized Eddy Current Separator and Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator.
“IFAT is the number one exhibition for waste and recycling in Europe and we wanted to stand out,” explained Jonathan Millington, Master Magnets Marketing Manager. “We had the opportunity to have our equipment working and separating metal on the stand. This proved to be far more interesting that just seeing a large steel box. Visitors to our stand were shown how our Eddy Current Separator could separate small non-ferrous metals. They watched as large fragmented stainless steel was attracted and separated on the Stainless Steel Separator. We did not have to tell visitors what our equipment could do as they could see it for themselves!”
Activity on the stand was busy for the whole show. There was interest in a wide range of Metal Separation equipment including Permanent Overband Magnets (for positioning over conveyors to lift and separate ferrous metals such as steel beverage cans) and large Drum Magnets (used when separating larger heavier ferrous scrap).
“Metal separation and recovery is vitally important for any recycling operation,” said Jonathan. “IFAT gave us the perfect platform to showcase and introduce our Magnetic Separators to companies involved in managing and processing waste across the world. Following the show we will be meeting with potential customers and also have several weeks booked to conduct controlled tests in our laboratory in Redditch.
“At IFAT we hope to have highlighted the strength of UK engineering and manufacturing.”
