The shredding centre piece for successful reprocessing

Three 3D models of shredders

This shredding technology, which is individually and precisely tailored to the specific materials, is the key to successful shredding in a range of applications.
As a recycler and reprocessor of a variety of different input materials, using the right shredding technology can let you achieve high throughput, maximum efficiency and specific output quality in your value-creation process, with an economically persuasive overall result. Vecoplan® has specialised in shredding machines since 1969.

We have continually optimised our product portfolio in your best interests and continuously built on the various requirements in dialogue with the customer. Today, we offer an extensive portfolio:  Single-shaft shredders, double-shaft shredders, pre-shredders, re-shredders, alternative fuel shredders, drum chippers, chippers and grinding mills. Highly robust and reliable, with the latest, partly patented technology. With perfect-fit drive and rotor concepts. The possibilities for shredding biomass, document and data carriers, household and commercial waste, wood, plastics, etc. are virtually limitless. We like to adapt the shredding process to your different input materials in real-life tests at our technology centre, in order to make it process-specific and develop the best solutions for YOU together.

Single-shaft shredders

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.
