WKS 1800

Single-shaft shredder for plastic applications
WEIMA industrial shredder W5.18

The WKS series was specially designed for plastic applications, the new machines aim for shredding voluminous objects, tear-resistant fibers and film. One of the most obvious new features is the newly designed material feeding system. Instead of a horizontal ram, the new WKS series has a so-called “swing-ram,” which is guided on rolls. This is what makes the shredder very compact and easy to maintain. It also allows a more aggressive material infeed. Optionally, an attachment can be added to the swing arm to optimize feeding. The low feeding point with a height of only 2.2 meters enables customers to fill the hopper via conveyor belt, forklift, or by hand. All WKS shredding machines are suitable to be run as a stand-alone solution or as part of a multiple-stage plant — a plastic recycling line including an extrusion system, for example.
