Metal Separation Demos Ignite Interest at IFAT 2018

Visitors to IFAT 2018 Enthralled by Working Magnetic Separators

An Eddy Current Separator was violently expelling non-ferrous metals from plastic waste on one side of the stand, whilst large chunks of fragmented stainless steel were being separated by the SSSC on the other.  ‘Seeing Is Believing’ was very much the basis of the Bunting and Master Magnets stand at IFAT 2018 (14th – 18th May 2018).

“We wanted to showcase our metal separation technology,” explained Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales, “and that meant having production-sized equipment operating on the stand.  The positive reaction of visitors highlighted the importance of being able to show metal being separated.”

IFAT is the first major waste and recycling exhibition of 2018 in Europe, featuring 3,305 exhibitors and over 141,000 visitors.  Key topics discussed during the week-long show included the filtering of microplastics; more effective recycling of plastics; and the digital transformation of the entire industry.

“Effective metal separation is vital for the successful recycling and reuse of many secondary materials,” said Dave.  “As a specialist in Magnetic Separation, we believed that the IFAT show provided the perfect platform to show recycling companies what is possible.  The show proved to be exceptionally successful and we are now in discussion with companies all over the world.”

Following the IFAT exhibition, many companies who visited the stand are sending samples to the Master Magnets laboratory in the UK for controlled tests to confirm the separation capability of both the Eddy Current Separator and Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator.

“There was a lot of interest in the Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator.  Stainless steel is a problematic material and, due to it’s hardness, can cause real problems in granulators and shredders.  Visitors were often surprised to see large fragmented stainless steel being attracted and separated.  It has generated a huge amount of interest and there is a lot of work to do.”

“Orders and interest for our [Bunting & Master Magnets] recycling equipment has never been stronger,” reported Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales.

IFAT is the first major waste and recycling exhibition of 2018 in Europe and is anticipated to be very well attended with a projected 140,000 visitors.

“Since the acquisition of Master Magnets [January 2017] we now have a total metal separation portfolio,” said Hills.  “On our stand at IFAT, we will be demonstrating how to successfully separate large stainless steel and recover small non-ferrous metals.  We want visitors to see rather than be told what separation is possible.”

At the IFAT exhibition is also looking to meet potential distributors for the Bunting & Master Magnets magnetic separation range of equipment.

“With the international nature of the IFAT show, we are looking forward to finding and meeting companies who can support us in developing business in the recycling and waste sectors across Europe.”

Bunting Sponsor Tŷ Hafan #5in55 Mountain Challenge

Ben Nevis Will Fly the Bunting Flag

Bunting Magnetics Europe has been announced as the headline sponsor for the Ben Nevis stage of the Ty Hafan #5in55 Mountain Challenge.

Between the 5th and 7th July 2018, a group of Dads, whose families have been supported by Tŷ Hafan, will be aiming to climb and travel between five UK mountains in a maximum of 55 hours.  The five mountains are Ben Nevis (highest in the UK), Scafell Pike (highest in England), Snowdon (highest in Wales), Cadair Idris and Pen-y-Fan (2nd and 3rd highest in Wales).

Tŷ Hafan is one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities and offers care to children and support for their families, throughout Wales.

“It is a crazy challenge and we wanted to show our support for such an amazing charity,” explained Simon Ayling, Bunting’s Managing Director.

Bunting became involved when Paul Fears, their Press Office and Photographer, announced that he was taking on the #5in55 challenge.  Paul and his family have received many years of support from Tŷ Hafan since his eldest son, Greg, was diagnosed with a life-limiting condition.

“Paul talked to us about the challenge and explained that this group of Dads just wanted to do something to promote Tŷ Hafan and thank the staff and care team” said Simon.  “Walking up five mountains in 55 hours was considered to be tough enough to be a real challenge, but is nothing compared to the daily challenges faced by the families and children who are supported by Tŷ Hafan.  Immediately, we wanted to support them and asked to sponsor the climb to the top of the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis.”

The #5in55 team are thrilled to have Bunting as a headline sponsor and donations for the Ty Hafan #5in55 Mountain Challenge can be made on their Just Giving site.
