The VTN CI Series - The Future Of Demolition & Scrap Shears

The new VTN CI-R series, re-designed specifically for heavy weight excavators, working in the processing of heavy duty metals and structures. VTN’s new series of CI-R scrap and demolition shear has now reached the highest levels in terms of performance. Built from the highest quality steel available, the aggressive shear frame represents the robustness and reliability of this new generation of scrap shear.

The jaw type and wide mouth opening have been designed for grabbing and cutting all-sizes of materials and thanks to a dedicated speed valve the CI-R shears optimise the cycle times. Whilst the piercing tip is made of one unique piece, the four-times replaceable blades will help end users save money on spare parts. The new jaw alignment guides together with the fixed jaw fulcrum pin grant for a very precise material cutting. The rotation system, with double bearings in row, consents to operators to gain a perfect positioning on the material to be processed helped also by the brake system inside the swinging motor.

VTN CI hydraulic scrap & demolition shears

These hydraulic shears can be fitted on all excavators from 1 to 110+ tonnes.

The body is made from Hardox 400 that guarantees safety and reliability even in the most heavy-duty applications, with a rotating assembly that allows the equipment to remain in the correct position.

Fitted as standard with speed valve that reduces cycle times, blades with trapezoidal profile that improve the cutting line, and an innovative adjuster kit on the jaws to adjust slacks with no need for manual intervention, the CI hydraulic shear is extremely versatile and suitable for the most specific applications.

VTN CI Scrap Shear

Rye Demolition MD Simon Barlow reports the VTN CI5000R scrap shear has been a fantastic addition to their new Hitachi Zaxis 490 machine and is proving invaluable in processing the many types of metal coming out of the redundant Kodak factory in North London. He added “we do have a couple of burners on site too, helping with the bigger metal structures, but overall the VTN CI scrap shear from ECY Haulmark has been a great investment and is performing very well indeed”.

VTN CI Scrap Shear

“VTN’s CI Series of scrap shears have always given us good solid service over the years, in old money we started with the HS200 and HS400 models, moving onto the CI3000 and now the CI10000R to assist in the onsite processing of our heavy duty demolition scrap metals” Mr Musto continues "In my experience using different types of scrap shears over the years, I can say with confidence the VTN CI shears are one of the best we've used, hence why we keep investing in the brand.

Along with investment in a brand new JCB JS131 tracked excavator we chose a VTN CI700R scrap shear attachment for use at our metal recycling facility.

Davidson’s commented; “We are utilising the new VTN CI700R scrap shear to cut our copper-coated cable into manageable lengths, the benefit being it becomes easier to feed into the cable stripper and lastly the copper into the granulator. The shear is also ideal for cutting up the smaller alloy structures we get in the yard”

“We were at a stage where it became necessary to replace our older shear and it was vital to find a suitable replacement so we chose the VTN CI4000R from ECY Haulmark. It’s a really strong, well made, quality piece of kit and have found it a great addition at our processing facility”

“Having a good quality mobile shear working on site offers us many benefits, it reduces oversize material in preparation for putting into our LeFort baler and reduces the need to burn, hence making savings on burning and labour costs. Also the environmental impacts of burning and costs of oxyacetylene gases are eliminated” he added “We know ECY Haulmark are very experienced in their field, I could not fault their sales team and installation team, we found them to be helpful, professional and exceptionally supportive throughout”
