This launch aligns with Shapiro’s strategic pivot towards technology-driven sustainability solutions, extending its expertise from scrap metal recycling to sophisticated, data-driven fluid management systems.

Optimizing Operations with Smart Technology

The new Fluid Recovery Systems from Shapiro represent a significant advancement in handling and recycling cutting fluids, which are crucial in the machining process but often pose environmental disposal challenges. These systems not only promise to reduce waste and increase sustainability but also streamline operations, leading to significant cost savings for companies.

Endorsements That Speak Volumes

The COO of a leading CNC machine shop praised the new system, stating, “These fluid recovery systems are not necessary for every company, but for those dealing with the problem of standing, unrecoverable fluid in their metal bins, it’s indispensable. It fundamentally transforms a critical problem and cost in our operation.”
