Bode Equipment Helps Machine Shop Realize Savings And Safety

You are here

Machining metal is a messy process, with plenty of sharp scraps falling from the machine onto the floor. Scraps of metal littered the floor at this New Hampshire machine shop, increasing the chances for injury, while requiring extra effort to sweep up and maintain a clean and safe space. Dirt and other floor debris mixed with the scrap metal, making it useless for recycling. 

The Bode Equipment team provided a low-profile, cleated belt conveyor to fit underneath the machine.  Scraps of metal funnel onto the conveyor belt and transfer to a mobile hopper. The hopper has fork lift pockets and casters.  A forklift can pick up the hopper and transport the scrap, or, if the forklift isn't available, an operator can easily wheel the hopper to the large recycling dumpster, providing flexibility for transferring the recyclable material.  

Bode's solution cleaned up the floor, centralizing the scrap metal into a reusable metal hopper.  All scrap metal was clean and ready to be recycled back to the metal supplier for a payback, reducing waste, improving the safety, environment and bottom line for this machine shop. 


“Over my 22 years of work in this industry, this is one of the best projects I’ve had the pleasure of be involved in. The constant communication and the desire to keep us informed throughout the entire process along with the flexibility to accommodate change orders while still keeping our project on schedule is why I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Bode again and again.”
