Precious metals are indispensable in today’s manufacturing industry. Precious metals are found in semiconductors and electronic components, LEDs and OLEDs, photovoltaic systems, magnetic data storage, passive components, and many other products. Recycling precious metals begins with a wide variety of starting materials and requires an equally varied range of specialized expertise.

Heraeus Precious Metals are specialists in processing recycled materials and recovering precious metal assets for reuse in the production process as quickly as possible. Heraeus has chosen to go with our Columbia HF4700-2A17-X-02 AC Electric Hoist to raise and lower furnace doors as material resources move in and out of these furnaces for processing.
