WEIMA presents the new WLK 1000 Plastic Shredder at FAKUMA 2014
Right at the time of the highlight of the second half of the year in the industry, WEIMA Maschinenbau GmbH is presenting the all-new WLK 1000 single-shaft shredder at the FAKUMA 2014 in Friedrichshafen. As part of the improved and successful WLK series, this shredder fits perfectly in universal shredders developed specially for plastics, for lumps, production waste, containers, fibers as well as foils.
Almost 30 years of experience in the shredding technology reflects in WEIMA’s new products. Customer satisfaction will always be the prime focus of WEIMA. WLK 1000 scores with its high thruput and enhanced flexibility in easy day-to-day use.

It has a standard hydraulic screen that can swivel downwards. This ensures better accessibility, especially for replacing the sieve or for maintenance work. In addition, all shredders of the new WLK series have an ex works log-spacer. The innovative design of the hopper along with increased capacity facilitates shredding of larger parts without material build-up. Another highlight is the segmented bottom guide of the shredder. The slider guides the material much more precisely to the spinning rotor. At the same time, even material like thin films or fibers do not get jammed in the machine.
Just like always, WEIMA provides machines, as per requirement, equipped with a massive V-rotor or F-rotor. While the rotor diameter is 252 mm for WLK 800, the rotor diameter for WLK 1000, 1500 and 2000 shredders is 368 mm - sheer power for maximum throughput.
The WEIMA Group has been building shredding machines for almost 30 years for a wide range of applications with customers in the plastic, wood and recycling industry from all over the world. The WEIMA Group has about 170 employees around the world with sales locations in Europe, North and South America and Asia. The production range includes single-shaft shredders, four-shaft shredders, granulators, briquette presses and systems including accessories.
