Shredding technology for waste made of wood, plastic or paper. The WL 15 single-shaft shredders have proven themselves to be the classic shredders for wood waste of all kinds, and can be found in thousands of woodworking shops all over the world. The shredded wood can be discharged into an air conveyor or onto a traditional conveyor.
WEIMA only requires one control panel to precisely control one or more machines including the conveyor system. The built-in Siemens PLC control is optimally adapted to the shredding process. Various slide controls and rotor settings can be conveniently adjusted to the desired application. All control cabinets are designed in-house and built in our German production facilities.
Many of our customers describe the profiled V rotor as a best in class for shredding. The material intake is optimally designed with two rows of knives. The V rotor stands for high throughput rates, low energy consumption, reduced thermal stress and low wear costs.
The ram feed can be controlled manually, cyclically, or load-dependently. Depending on the application, it makes sense to supplement the classic material ram with more technical options. To prevent possible jamming and improve its guidance, the ram can be guided on rollers. In addition, WEIMA recommends the use of a segmented floor – especially for very thin materials.
The shredding of particularly resistant materials requires correspondingly robust bearings that are easy to maintain. WEIMA uses long-life, spherical roller bearings, whose stable design and offset mounting from the machine frame protects against impacts and uncontrolled power transmission. Their additional shaft seal ring effectively helps against the intrusion of contaminants or dust.
Adjust the screen to your needs. The smaller the hole diameter, the finer the shredded material that is discharged. Screens can be replaced flexibly and are screwed in place as standard.
For most applications, electromechanical drives are the classic choice because they are easy to maintain and robust. WEIMA's special feature: we manufacture our own gearboxes that are specially designed for shredding operations. Torque monitoring and shock-absorbing vibration dampers round off the package. A hydrodynamic start-up clutch is available as an option for further protection of the machine.
The ram of a shredder is moved back and forth hydraulically. With turbo hydraulics, this happens even faster. For continuous operation, additional oil cooling and a length measuring systems are available upon request.
Vibration damping machine feet for less vibration in the building
Thanks to compact feet made of hard rubber, there is no need to anchor the machine to the plant floor. The installation remains flexible. More importantly, disruptive vibrations that negatively affect the surrounding area are effectively avoided.
WEIMA shredders easily shred pallets into wood chips, which can then be used as an energy source for your own heating system or sold for a profit. Nails and foreign matter can be removed by means of magnets.
