Vecoplan AG at LIGNA 2017
Vecoplan AG actually presents itself with two booths at the LIGNA 2017, the international trade fair for the forestry and timber industry (22 to 26 May, Hanover/Germany). The manufacturer of plants and machinery for shredding, conveying and processing of primary and secondary raw materials thereby not only appeals to companies from the wood and recycling industries. Also, wood processing companies will find promising solutions. Vecoplan, for example, shows the single-shaft shredders series VAZ, suitable for various applications.
At the main booth F50 in hall 25 Vecoplan presents prototypes of this series for sawmills or manufacturers of wood-based materials. Single-shaft shredders are universal and frequently used machines that, in most applications, do not require any additional feeding systems. Operators can feed the collected material directly and undosed into the hopper. The hydraulically driven ram simply and quickly pushes the material to the shredding unit. Due to its extremely low rotor speed, the vertical tasks are effected at low noise and dust levels. The VAZ 1100 XL e. g. has a rotor diameter of 370 mm, a material outlet of 1,075 mm and a height of 1,100 mm. In hall 12 on stand C22, Vecoplan presents an extremely compact system from this series which is particularly suitable for woodworking companies.
Vecoplan also shows the drum chipper VTH 45/10/2 U at the main booth. These wood chippers stand out by their enormous throughput capacity. They are stationary machines with horizontal feeding unit and are designed with a fast-turning chipping knife rotor that comminutes input material free of foreign material, short or long waste wood from the cutting and wood processing industry. Operators use these economic systems to produce e.g. fuel chips for energy production or high quality chips for the cellulose industry. Furthermore, for the production of energy chips for thermic use in biomass power plants, Vecoplan presents the biomass chipper VTH 105/60/4 B with feeding conveyor.
Because LIGNA attracts users from different industries and with different concerns, Vecoplan is dividing its booth into theme islands. These include, among others, biomass, sawmill, waste wood processing or service.
