Shredding is our core competence.

Three 3D models of shredders

Our customers benefit from our experience in shredding technology which has been accumulated over many years. It is a field we have specialised in ever since the company was founded in 1969. Right from the outset, we have been continuously developing our machines, honing the underlying technology to perfection and revolutionising the international market. Our range of mechanical process engineering and system solutions is unrivalled anywhere in the world: From recycling (raw materials production) through to waste recycling and special solutions for industry, you can always rely on us as your expert partner with exceptional know-how.

Single-shaft shredders (VAZ) small series
The single-shaft shredder is the most versatile and widely used shredder and can operate without an additional feeding system in most applications. The material collected can be fed directly with dosing. The hydraulically driven ram feeds the material to the rotor. The rotor system, developed and patented in 1989, is able to handle almost all materials.

The rotor of the single-shaft shredder (VAZ) turns particularly slowly and this, combined with the vertical material feed, makes it especially quiet and dust-free. The large- volume hopper and the patented rotor system optimise the shredding of wood, plastic, paper and other recyclables.

Double-shaft shredders

Our double-shaft shredders are particularly rugged machines with a throughput of up to 100 to/h. A homogeneous material is produced by the interaction of both rotors with the shared counter knife and the screen respectively if required the screen bars. Double-shaft re-shredders are equipped with pneumatic machine damage protection, the so-called Flipper. They are designed as pre-shredders or re-shredders and are suitable for processing wood as well as municipal solid and commercial waste.

Key features of double-shaft shredders:

  • drive capacity from 2 x 75 kW to 2 x 250 kW.
  • throughput capacity from 10,000 to 100,000 kg/h
  • 1.90 m to 3.10 m long rotors for directly feeding the hopper, which has a capacity of up to 20 cubic metres.
  • no additional equipment, such as post presser or tilting hopper, is required

Drum chippers, horizontal

Essentially the drum chipper is indispensable in the wood processing industry owing to its enormous throughput and wide range of sizes and rotor systems. It is designed to perform a range of tasks, from the production of fuel chips for energy generation through to quality wood chips for the wood pulp industry. In a nutshell, it is used in industrial applications where wood chips are required as the starting material for a subsequent production process.

The material is fed horizontally into the drum chippers. Feeding via vibratory conveyor and conveyor belt is possible.
