30 years ago, SWB invented the differentially hardened shredder hammer. 1,000,000 pieces of this wear tool, which is used in shredders for cutting the secondary raw material scrap, have been sold to customers in 48 countries worldwide. Exports account for 75% of their turnover. Main buyer countries are the USA with Canada, followed by France, England, Belgium, Spain, and Japan.
SWB products are used in processing plants like car shredders, scrap shears, stone crushers and other recycling equipment subjected to highest levels of wear. SWB wear parts have the highest resistance to abrasion, erosion and impact and therefore significantly improve the efficiency of the processing equipment in which they are used.
