  • Designed for conventional recycling facilities and for the manufacturing industry

Technical systems



Infeed hopper [1]

The loose feed material is loaded into the infeed hopper, which is individually adapted to the material and type of feeding. 

Rotor [2]

The rotor is produced from a solid forged part. A rotating wear protection element protects the rotor edges at the housing mounting point from wear.

Blades [3]

The blades of the rotor and static blade seat are versatile and can be rotated or replaced in just a few steps. The style, quality and number of blades is configured to match the specific application at hand.

Screen unit [4]

The screen consists of multiple segments that can be replaced individually. The screen support can be rotated downwards. This makes it significantly easier to perform maintenance work.

Drive [5]

The drive is frequency controlled, and the speed of the rotor is freely adjustable between 80 and 240 rpm. As a result, the machine can be configured to account for the properties of different feed materials.

Static blade seat with blade segments

The modular static blade seat is equipped with multiple blade segments. This modular design enables easy adjustment of the blades and ensures consistent cutting quality.

Movable base plate

A hydraulically movable base plate simplifies the removal of contaminants and facilitates access when performing maintenance work.

Isolated rotor bearing

The rotor shaft bearings are located in a double-walled housing. This protects the shaft bearings from the effects of heat and dust, which increases their service life.

Hydraulic pusher unit

A hydraulically driven slide pushes the material along the base plate and toward the cutting system where cutting takes place.



The loose feed material is loaded into the infeed hopper. A hydraulically driven slide pushes the material along the base plate and toward the shredding system. The feed material is shredded between the rotor equipped with blades and the counter-blade mounted on the static blade seat. Once the shredded material reaches a defined particle size, it falls out of the machine through a screen basket. The size of the discharge material is defined by the hole pitch of the screen. It can range from 10 to 120 mm.
