For the first time, Vecoplan will be presenting a pre-shredder for pallets and boxes at LIGNA, the world’s leading trade fair for the woodworking and wood processing industry, scheduled in Hannover from May15 to 19. The machine is equipped with the Vecoplan Smart Center (VSC), which opens the way to additional digital services. Visitors will also get to see other premieres and relaunches – further demonstrations of Vecoplan’s unique expertise.
At its Stand F66 in Hall 25 Vecoplan will give its first live trade-fair demonstration of the Vecoplan Pallet Crusher (VPC). Together with the VHZ wood shredder, it is an efficient means of shredding pallets and boxes in a continuous process. Until now, material centres, distribution centres and DIY stores have had to rely on large, powerful single-shaft shredders for continuous processing of large-volume wooden components. These machines took up a lot of floor space, in contrast to the combined solution consisting of the VHZ and VPC. They also had relatively low throughput, because the bulky load carriers fed to them contained lots of air.
Chipper in a new design
Another trade fair highlight will be the relaunch of the VTH 450 biomass chipper, which is used in chipping plants in the energy & pellet industries, biomass heat & power plants and boiler feed systems. The VTH 450 is the first machine in Vecoplan’s line of biomass chippers to come out in a new industrial design.
Visitors to LIGNA will also learn about the challenging waste shredding operations of the Finnish-Swedish company Stora Enso. The company needed an effective processing line for large quantities of solid production waste consisting of cross-laminated timber (CLT) from house construction.
Vecoplan will also be showing the first images of the prototype of its new VVB primary crusher. A user that produces fuels from biomass is currently putting this world-first solution through its paces. Vecoplan will present facts and figures on the VVB in Hannover.
