Hellweg Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG of Roetgen, Germany, said its small, light grinder called MRS is designed for recycling sprues from molding compact discs and digital versatile discs.
Hellweg will display the MRS at the Fakuma 2002 show, Oct. 17-21 in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
The slow-speed granulator turns at 25 revolutions per minute — guaranteeing dust-free grinding of uniform-sized particles, without the use of a sieve. Both sprues and thick-wall parts can be ground because the material is pre-crushed between the roller mills.
Hellweg also has added a CD/DVD granulator under the MRS line that works in a vertical position, so the equipment can operate directly inside the injection molding press.
