All-new WL shredder series to be revealed at the Holz-Handwerk 2014 trade show
At one of the most important European shows for machine technology, equipment and supplies for the wood industry, size reduction expert WEIMA will introduce the latest WL shredder series by presenting the WL 1000 single-shaft shredder. Classic models, including but not limited to the WL 4 and WL 8 shredders, as well as the C 150 and C 170 briquetting presses, will also be exhibited.
Preparations for this Nuremburg trade show, which aims to be the highlight of the year within the wood industry, are in full swing. This time WEIMA will focus on the topic of resource efficiency. In times of scarce commodities, enterprises are instructed to handle energy carriers responsibly and sustainably. This not only benefits the environment but also the business.

In order to meet these requirements, WEIMA developed the new WL single-shaft shredder series. The WL 1000 is now on display in Nuremberg, representing the latest technologies in shredding wood. With a working width of 1000mm, a rotor diameter of 370mm and up to 55 kW drive performance, wood scrap of all kinds can easily be grinded. Therefore, WEIMA’s innovative V-rotor is used for optimum in-feed. Material is fed into the newly-designed “logspacer” hopper, which makes it possible to shred large parts without bridging. The ram that pushes the material against the rotor is guided by a segmented floor. The WL 1000 screen can even be lowered hydraulically. This ensures easier access especially when it comes to changing the screen or other routine maintenance work.
Besides the presentation of the WL 1000 shredder, WEIMA is going to exhibit the classic WL 4 and WL 8 shredders. Thousands of these machines are used all over the world from small to medium sized businesses. Their distinguishing feature is a very rugged construction enabling an extremely long service life (even in outdoor operations). The global popularity of these shredder series assures high reliability at a competitive price.

Lastly, WEIMA will address briquetting at the Holz-Handwerk 2014 show. The C 150 and C 170 briquette presses that are on display can briquette materials such as saw dust, wood chips, swarf, softwood, hardwood, chipboard or MDF. These machines are characterized by a sturdy design, low-maintenance system, and compact space requirements. C-series briquetters are ideal for small and medium-sized businesses where the required output rate does not exceed 50-80 kg per hour. Scrap volume can be reduced by up to 90%. This is particularly attractive to the furniture industry, saw mills and cabinetmakers. With briquette presses from WEIMA, valuable wood waste can now be processed into compact briquettes and sold or burned as a heating source. In addition to the C 150 and C 170, the TH 600, TH 900 S and HD 70 K briquetting units will also be on display.
We now have 28,000 machines in operation worldwide! WEIMA has been building shredders (single-shaft and four-shaft) and briquette presses for all types of applications for the past 28 years! We serve customers in the wood, plastics, metal, and recycling industries among others from all over the world. The company has a workforce of around 170 employees worldwide and sales locations in Europe, Asia, North and South America.
