Russian furniture giant Lerom relies on a WEIMA ZM 40 four-shaft shredder to process more than 20 cubic meters of wood waste from production every day.
For the processing of toxic, corrosive and sometimes flammable waste streams, it simply cannot be a standard off-the-shelf shredder. The Siam City Cement subsidiary Ecocycle in Hon Chong (Kien Giang Province, Vietnam) took up the challenge and found the right technology partner in WEIMA.
For a particularly tricky application in plastics recycling, WEIMA recently installed a high-torque drive from Baumüller. And with great success: Compared to a conventional drive, up to 30 percent lower energy costs are achieved here.
The Australian woodworking company Paarhammer uses a WEIMA WL 4 single-shaft shredder and TH 814 briquette press to recycle their wood waste on-site and create extra revenue.
With a WEIMA WL 13 single-shaft shredder and a TH 820 briquetting press, Hutchings Timber makes clever use of wood waste to save costs, sustainably heat premises and sell briquettes profitably.
