Electric Motor Recycling Machine

Electric Motor Recycling Machines by Bronneberg are Easy to Use and Built to Last

Bronneberg-Electric Motor Dismantler

Eventually every electric motor outlives its usefulness and needs to be replaced by a newer, more up-to-date model with enhanced functions.

Recycling the valuable components of those discarded electric motors is economically feasible using the Bronneberg electric motor recycling machine from Mid-Atlantic Waste Systems.

Typically, valuable copper and aluminum components are shrouded in tough cast iron or hard aluminum outer casings that, at first glance, seem impenetrable. With the electric motor recycler's three-step process, the re-useable components can be rescued from the casings and internal structure to yield these highly valuable components.

How an Electric Motor Recycler Works

Certified in the European Zone (CE Certified), the Bronneberg motor recycling machine is capable of disassembling even the toughest motors and separating any and all valuable components.


  • The machine, with accessories specific to many processes, is 400V-5.5 kW-powered
  • The dimensions of this system are 59 inches wide by 33.5 inches deep by 98.4 inches high
  • The equipment weighs approximately 3300 pounds (1400 kg). Designed to be moved around easily, the motor recycler can be pulled out when needed and stowed while idle

What is the Motor Recycling Process?

In preparation for the mechanical recycling of the electric motor, outer pieces and attachments that can be removed should be unscrewed and put aside. This should reveal the actual external housing of the electric motor.  

The Bronneberg industrial electric motor recycling machine employs a three-stage process to harvest the valuable material within.

Stage one: The operator initiates the separation and removal of the outer casing to expose the elements of the electric motor. With extreme high pressure exerted by the splitting apparatus, the cast iron or aluminum housing is cut on opposing sides to separate and peeled away to expose the inner workings. The anchor/rotor is then removed. 

Stage two: The second stage is the cleaving of the stator or transformer block into two equal pieces. By opening these up, copper coils are now exposed and ready for separation from the remaining parts and materials.

Stage three: The third stage of the process involves pulling the copper wiring away from the surrounding metal through which it had been threaded by means of a complex hydraulic system. The housing is literally pulled away, leaving the copper wiring fully exposed and unattached.

The result: A volume of valuable copper wiring cleanly separated from a pile of scrap metal and plastic that may also be recycled.

Mid-Atlantic and Bronneberg Partnership

Since 1946, Netherlands-based Bronneberg has been an international leader in the design and manufacture of durable, innovative and profit-generating waste handling equipment. From the beginning, Bronneberg’s problem-solvers have produced a wide range of equipment that target the economical salvage of equipment and cable components. Mid-Atlantic Waste Systems, a US-based innovator in recycling, is the exclusive North American distributor for Bronneberg equipment.

Step One: Dismantling the Motor Housing


The Electric Motor Dismantler applies pressure onto the motor housing, either aluminum or cast iron, and splits it twice with help from the operator. During this step, the operator also removes the anchor/rotor from the casing.

Step Two: Splitting the Stator or Transformer Block
During this step, the operator would split the Stator or Transformer block to reveal the copper tubing within.


Step Three: Separating the Iron and Copper of the Stator
During this last step, a sophisticated hydraulic press clings to and releases the copper coils and tubing from the stator. This separates the metals from each other
