Unleashing the Power of Copper Rice Machines: Revolutionizing Wire Recycling

In today's rapidly evolving world, the demand for efficient and sustainable recycling solutions has never been greater. As we strive to minimize our environmental impact and conserve valuable resources, the recycling industry is constantly searching for innovative technologies to streamline processes and maximize returns. One such groundbreaking innovation is the copper rice machine, a wire recycling marvel that has revolutionized the way we handle scrap cables and wires. In this blog post, we'll explore the ins and outs of copper rice machines, their benefits, and how they're transforming the wire recycling landscape.

What is a Copper Rice Machine?

A copper rice machine, also known as a wire granulator or cable recycling machine, is a specialized piece of equipment designed to separate the valuable copper and aluminum content from scrap wires and cables. By shredding and pulverizing the cables, these machines effectively turn the metal into small granules, or "rice," which can then be easily sorted and processed for further use.

How Does a Copper Rice Machine Work?

The copper rice machine operates in several stages to ensure the efficient and thorough recycling of scrap wires and cables. Here's a step-by-step breakdown of the process:

1. Pre-Shredding: Scrap wires and cables are fed into the machine, where they are cut and shredded into smaller pieces for easier processing.

2. Crushing: The shredded material is then crushed and pulverized by a series of grinding blades, turning the cables into fine granules.

3. Air Separation: The granulated material is passed through an air separator, which uses a combination of airflow and vibration to separate the lighter plastic insulation from the heavier metal granules.

4. Dust Collection: A built-in dust collection system captures and filters out any fine particles, ensuring a clean and environmentally friendly operation.

5. Metal Sorting: The separated metal granules, or "copper rice," are collected and can be further sorted by additional equipment if needed, such as an electrostatic separator, to ensure the highest possible purity levels.

Benefits of Copper Rice Machines

Copper rice machines offer a wide range of benefits, making them an invaluable addition to any wire recycling operation:

Efficiency: By automating the wire recycling process, copper rice machines significantly reduce the time and labor required to process scrap cables, resulting in higher productivity and lower operating costs.

High Recovery Rates: Copper rice machines are capable of recovering up to 99.9% of the metal content from scrap wires and cables, ensuring maximum returns for recyclers.

Environmental Benefits: By recycling scrap wires and cables, copper rice machines help to conserve valuable resources and reduce the environmental impact of mining and manufacturing new metals.

Versatility: Copper rice machines can process a wide range of wire types and sizes, making them suitable for various applications and industries.

Ease of Maintenance: Modern copper rice machines are designed with ease of maintenance in mind, featuring easily accessible components and requiring minimal downtime for cleaning and servicing.


The copper rice machine is a game-changer in the wire recycling industry, offering unparalleled efficiency, recovery rates, and environmental benefits. As the demand for sustainable recycling solutions continues to grow, the copper rice machine stands out as a shining example of innovation and progress in our ongoing quest to preserve our planet's resources and minimize our impact on the environment.

CNC Copper Machining

CNC Machining Copper Material is good electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, it is soft and good for machining as it has high plasticity, it is easily and rapidly to carry out desired shape as machining cutter can run faster than other steel materials, and also reach high precision.

Copper has a shiny reddish-orange finish, which varies slightly based on the surface finish method. Copper can be media-blasted and polished to achieve many different cosmetic surface finishes.

CNC Machining Copper Parts are widely used in the manufacture of electrical wires, cables, electric brushes, electric spark, and other electrical devices and products.
