The WMS 600 single-shaft shredder is the ideal machine for the shredding of light metals. The material is introduced into the hopper from above and directed toward the turning rotor via a hydraulic ram. The V-Rotor is produced with the use of solid material and is mounted with the use of rugged rotor bearings. Special knife holders are welded into pockets around the rotor. The knives are then screwed into the knife holders from the back, making it possible to change knives efficiently.
