Core Exchange Program for the Metal Shredding Industry

Core Exchange

Over the past 40 years Standard Miether has served the metal shredding industry with a wide variety of engineered and standard designs for use in feed conveyors, exit conveyors, and main rotor shafts. In the event of a catastrophic main rotor housing failure, expedient delivery of replacement housings to meet production demands is critical. Standard Miether’s Core Exchange Program makes it possible for metal shredding companies to hold fewer items in stock, since immediate delivery of selected sizes is just a phone call away.  Before you decide to purchase backup maintenance stock for unforeseen catastrophic failures, contact Standard Miether.
