Ball & Jewell of South Attleboro, Mass., introduced the TG series of granulators for thermoforming.
TG machines continuously reclaim skeletal web scrap directly from the thermoforming trim press. Less than 2 feet high, the low-profile units are positioned under the trim press. They are available in two throat sizes, measuring either 8 inches by 36 inches or 8 inches by 56 inches. Throughputs range from 800-1,500 pounds per hour.
Features include low power consumption, low revolutions per minute and a six-knife, offset-mounted configuration. The granulator has two adjustable stationary knives.
Dual feed rolls are covered with polyurethane, so they resist wear.
