Casting machines which involve the investment of many millions of Euros cannot be used to their full capacity because production waste cannot be removed quickly enough.

Also the handling of such bulky waste, through to being re-melted, is problematic and prone to interruptions. In some instances, this involves manual work under stressful conditions (heat, noise). And the acceptance of the high risk of injury arising from the often sharp edged and tangled cast pieces (made from zinc or aluminum for example).
