The briquetting process is nowadays gaining renewed attention. A briquetting machine, with current technologies, is simple, easy to use and brings multiple advantages to the metalworking industries. Do you know which are the several benefits in details? The first obvious benefit of compacting processes lies in the significant reduction in terms of volume of waste.
The briquettes, being compacted at very high pressures compared to the shavings, make the work environments logistically organized and efficient, giving to a company the chance of using new spaces for the storage of products and for the production line.
