Meeting the Challenge: Introducing the WEIMA Shredder

Quis Machinery recommended the integration of a cutting-edge WEIMA WL 6 single-shaft shredder, along with other auxiliary machinery, to address Boyd Manufacturing's waste management needs. The WEIMA shredder was a game-changer, enabling Boyd Manufacturing to efficiently handle wood waste while significantly reducing storage and transportation requirements.

“[WEIMA] is one of my favorite lines, because it is so easy to calculate the ROI. The grinder doesn’t reduce the amount of waste created, but it drastically reduces the amount of space and labor required to store and transport that waste.”

– Jason Dingess, President and Owner of Quis Machinery

Efficient Waste Reduction and Responsible Practices

The WEIMA shredder seamlessly grinds off cuts, skeletons, and other furniture remnants, which are typically generated during Boyd Manufacturing's production process. Boyd Manufacturing has eliminated wood waste accumulation inside their facility.

Quis believes in finding the right machinery partners for their customers. Wood waste management benefits from quality machinery, excellent service, and longevity in the industry.

The addition of ductwork from Nordfab Ducting and an air filtration system from Nederman also ensured the safe removal of hazardous dust, redirecting it to a designated outdoor collection area.
