Plastic materials

As a renowned manufacturer of reliable plastics shredders, we offer special machines for in-house recycling and for heavily contaminated post-consumer waste.

Due to its format, components and characteristics, plastic is a very versatile material that is primarily used in industrial mass production. The resulting plastic waste can be recycled by shredding and washing the material, before generating a reusable, recycled granulate. Shredded plastic waste can also be used for energy generation.

Our shredders were developed specifically for the processing of plastics. They deal effortlessly with all kinds of plastics, ranging from foils, lumps, profiles, fibres, ribbons, PET bottles and hollow parts to post-consumer and production waste. Thanks to a range of different cutting systems, rotor diameters and shapes as well as different blade sizes, the shredders are suitable for thermoplastics, duroplastics and elastomers and may be customised to suit your individual requirements.

Applications

An exact cut is required to be able to efficiently shred filaments, little bands, big bags, fleece materials, ropes and textiles. Our shredders are especially designed to smoothly and efficiently shred even these types of materials.

Film waste comes in various types. Sometimes it is pre-sorted production waste and sometimes it is soiled, mixed commercial waste. Every application requires an individual machine configuration. We offer customized shredding systems that are adjusted to your requirements.

We offer plastics shredders with different cutting systems, drive capacities and infeed dimensions so we can adjust the shredder to optimally fit your clump material. Regardless of whether it consists of PE, ABS, PP, PS or PA, our shredders will process these materials efficiently and reliably.

Hollow bodies or containers are a challenge for every shredder due to their large volume. Thanks to special push-in and push-down systems, our shredders reliably and efficiently shred any type of hollow bodies such as drums, tanks, canisters, bottles, pipes or IBCs.

Shredding post-consumer waste poses a complex challenge and is only possible using the very best systems. We are known for implementing very powerful as well as extraordinarily reliable shredding systems for our customers.

As much as 15% of passenger cars are comprised of plastic and plastic composites. A large amount of different plastic materials is accumulated during manufacturing as well as during the end-of-life vehicle recycling. You can benefit from our expertise for shredding your production waste.
