Shredders for the Packaging Industry

Standing out among the exhibits will be two remarkable machines that are poised to revolutionize the industry. The ZMK 40 four-shaft shredder, a pinnacle of engineering prowess, will take center stage as it effortlessly shreds various materials, paving the way for further recycling or material reclamation.

WEIMA also offers a full range of shredders, including single-shaft shredders, horizontally-fed shredders, and granulators. No matter the application, WEIMA can offer a custom shredding solution that will optimize waste handling within an operation.

Drainage Presses for Single-Step Recycling

Complementing this is the WEIMA E.200 drainage press, designed to efficiently compress filled and empty packaging like cans, bottles, and pouches. The press's ability to significantly reduce storage space requirements and enhance recycling processes underscores WEIMA's dedication to advancing sustainable practices across sectors.

This line of machinery also ranges in size. Larger models of this machine are available, namely the G.200 and the G.300 drainage presses. Various hopper designs are available for the E.200, which gives an operation more control over how material is fed into the machine.
