Sims Metal New Zealand Sleeve Loader

sims metal new zealand sleeve loader

Sims Metal New Zealand has recently invested in a purpose-built sleeve loader.

The sleeve loader provides a way to reduce steps in the loading process of metals – from the Sims Metal yards into containers for shipping – by simply loading the material and, with the push of a button, transferring it into the container with no personal contact or container damages.

Traditionally, this loading process is done with a skid steer loader and ramp. During the process, the container is stood upright and the scrap metal is picked up and dropped into the container with gravity doing a lot of the work, but there are some safety and property damage risks.

The purpose-built sleeve loader, instead, thanks to heavy-duty thick walls keeps the heavy loads safely secured inside, keeping employees safe from sharp and heavy materials.
