Weima America Inc. has developed grinders that can handle large plastic parts, such as long or wide pipes and profiles.
The WLK-R feeds the scrap from above through a funnel. A hydraulic, load-controlled device pushes the material against the turning rotor. Feeding from above can accommodate parts up to 10 feet long and with a diameter of 4 feet.
Weima offers the grinder with rotor widths of 40-120 inches, in either electrical or hydraulic drive.
Weima America, based in Fort Mill, S.C., is the U.S. unit of Weima Maschinenbau GmbH of Ilsfeld, Germany.
Another grinder, the WPR-HK, can handle parts up to 26½ feet long with diameters of 32 inches, by feeding the parts through a horizontal feeding unit.
