i was wondering it large industrial foundries have uses for metal turnings, and chips left over from lathe and mill work.
If so what is it? does it have a specific use, or something that only the turnings bring to the process? or is it used only to fill the empty spaces inside the chamber?
Now, talking about the turnings, would a foundry benefit from compacting these turnings into small brick size cubes? are these bricks payed better than loose metal turnings?
Hope you can give me some insight or point me in the right direction.
