Dimeca Metals Monterrey, Mexico has just received their latest new LEFORT, an SB800 shear baler. This marks the third, and largest LEFORT shear baler that Dimeca now operates in Mexico. Dimeca also operates a LEFORT SB660 Crawler at their facility in Guadalajara, and an SB770 machine in Saltillo.

Ricardo de la Pena, Chief Executive Officer of Dimeca, tells us that the production rate has exceeded his expectations, that they are cutting materials that allow them to save a lot of cost, and most important they finally were able to process some very large piles of scrap that they had previously not been able to. Ricardo tells us that “We are very happy with this machine.”

The new LEFORT SB800 shear baler in Monterrey features a loading hopper, 800 tons of shearing force, a 23-foot (7 meter) box, and a 230 kW electric motor driving state of the art Bosch Rexroth pumps and a LEFORT engineered hydraulic system.
