The latest WEIMA WLK 1500 is designed for high throughput rates and lend themselves to the shredding of almost all types of waste -especially for; Plastics, paper, cardboard, wood and light metals.
Numerous machine options ensure optimum adaptation to any application. The shredder can also be ideally integrated as a pre-shredder in a two-stage process solution.
Flexible control for changing material flows
WEIMA only requires one control panel to precisely control one or more machines including the conveyor system. The built-in Siemens PLC control is optimally adapted to the shredding process. Various slide controls and rotor settings can be conveniently adjusted to the desired application. All control cabinets are designed in-house and built in our German production facilities.
Perfect cutting gap thanks to adjustable counter knives
The interaction between the cutting knife and the counter knife has a significant influence on the material throughput and the shredding result. To maintain a perfect cutting gap even with natural wear, counter-knives of this series are manually adjustable as well as reversible.
Universally applicable V rotor for demanding applications
Many of our customers describe the profiled V rotor as a best in class for shredding. The material intake is optimally designed with two rows of knives.
Big Bag shredding and recycling
A WLK 1500 single-shaft shredder shreds Big Bags. An EREMA Intarema Extruder further reduces the shredded Big Bags into granulate.
Controlled material feeding by ram with serrated plate and segmented floor
The ram feed can be controlled manually, cyclically, or load-dependently. Depending on the application, it makes sense to supplement the classic material ram with more technical options. To prevent possible jamming and improve its guidance, the ram can be guided on rollers. In addition, WEIMA recommends the use of a segmented floor – especially for very thin materials.
Offset rotor bearings protect against dust and foreign matter
The shredding of particularly resistant materials requires correspondingly robust bearings that are easy to maintain. WEIMA uses long-life, spherical roller bearings, whose stable design and offset mounting from the machine frame protects against impacts and uncontrolled power transmission.
Homogeneous shredding results thanks to flexible, interchangeable screen
Adapt the screen to your needs. The smaller the hole diameter, the finer the shredded material that is discharged. Screens can be exchanged flexibly and are bolted as standard.
Precise cut with F rotor for flexible materials
The F rotor impresses with its controlled infeed behaviour and its precise cutting geometry – especially with flexible materials such as films, filaments or veneer.
