Nihot’s 75th anniversary!

It all started on 01 March 1945 with the production of wood stoves but Nihot quickly changed to the design and production of extraction and incineration plants for the wood industry. In the 1960s we produced spray booths for cars and trucks.

The company shifted the course in the 1970s to focus on extraction equipment for the graphic industry. It was during this period that Nihot laid the foundation and created the predecessors of our current windshifter equipment.

Since 2013, Nihot is member of Bulk Handling Systems (BHS), established in Eugene, Oregon (USA), and offers the entire product range that is available within the group. Such as separation using NRT optical sorters, BHS disc screens and the unique Max-AI® technology. Max identifies recyclables similar to the way a person does, only with machine vision powered by artificial intelligence. Max directs robots to pick and place recyclables and even adds intelligence to optical sorters.

After 75 years of experience, including the production of separation technologies since the 1980s, we have sold almost 1000 windshifters worldwide. Who will receive the 1000th windshifter? We will inform you within our next newsletter!


We couldn’t have done it without you!


For several years, we have had our SDi windshifters and DRS disc screens available as demo units. Both are designed to give plant owners, plant managers, operational managers and others a look at the operation and separation efficiency of the equipment when used on their own waste material. These demos have been so successful that most tests lead to the delivery of a new machine.

We believe in our statement ‘Seeing is Believing’ and this year, especially for our 75th anniversary, you can test with these demo units rental free! Interested in testing with your input material? Please contact us (
