Why Shred Nonwovens?

The shredding of nonwoven material reduces scrap and the need to purchase virgin resin. The need for a steady supply of material is crucial as oil prices are constantly fluctuating. Shredding nonwovens help lower disposal/purchasing costs and is more environmentally friendly. Many nonwoven producers have integrated a shredder and pelletizer into their production line.


WEIMA offers a wide selection of nonwoven shredders including our single-shaft shredder. The F+ Rotor is ideal for shredding filament-based materials and is often used in the initial destruction of nonwovens. For materials that have a lower melting point, WEIMA manufactures a chilled rotor option that allows the shredder to process the material as efficiently as possible without melting.



Briquetting Nonwovens

As nonwovens are cut or shred, dust is often released as a byproduct that can be dangerous in production environments. The installation of a briquette press at the discharge of the dust collection system can help eliminate dusting and increase overall safety. By creating nonwoven briquettes from the dust discharge, this helps eliminate clean-up and transportation time. WEIMA does not use adhesives to create the briquettes, rather the use of pressure to compress dust into hockey-shaped briquettes. Our briquetting machines have a compaction rate of up to 9:1, saving a company significant amounts of money while reducing their environmental footprint.
