Cumberland Engineering Corp. has introduced a 65 Series beside-the-press granulator.
A belt-drive motor spins the high-inertia flywheel, so the grinder can run at a slow speed of 190 rpms. The three-knife open rotor with scooped wings uses slant-cut knives that are heat-treated.
The machine can handle small parts such as runners, small blow molded parts, extruded tubes and profiles and edge trim from sheet extrusion. Throughputs range from 150-300 pounds.
Other features include a reversible top hopper section for easier feeding of longer runners, and a removable flapper assembly.
Cumberland of South Attleboro, Mass., also named Davis Wolf as regional sales manager. He began his career with Cumberland in 1993. Wolf, based out of his home office in Columbus, Ohio, will handle the Midwest, Ohio Valley, southwestern United States and part of Canada.
