HAMMEL innovative

The world's first mobile scrap processing plant was developed and manufactured by HAMMEL. With this complete plant, it was possible for the first time to process mixed materials, such as car bodies, into material-separated end products.

Since then, developing our market-driven processing solutions has been our daily drive. This applies to all recycling areas such as wood, waste and scrap processing.

Even difficult tasks are no problem, materials such as railway sleepers with plates, wind turbine wings and dumper tires.
