CHICAGO (June 29, 4 p.m. EDT) — Economizer USA is targeting the entry-level market with its ESS Series 850 single-shaft shredder for reducing large parts and purgings.
The shredder is the smallest among four models in the ESS Series, with a feed opening of about 47 inches by 35 inches. The largest ESS model, the 2000, has a feed opening of about 56 inches by 82 inches. The number of rotor cutters in the series ranges from 52-128. All models have dual rows of bed knives.
At NPE 2006 in Chicago, South Attleboro, Mass.-based Economizer introduced an ESH Series heavy-duty granulator that has hydraulic access to the cutting chamber and screen cradle. A third bed knife, or deflector wedge, is available as an option.
In addition, Economizer displayed the ESE Series beside-the-press granulator in three sizes suitable for numerous molding processes. The 12-inch-diameter, three-blade rotor uses V-cut technology that directs material to the center of the rotor from each end. Vacuum, manual or blower discharge formats are available.
EL Series hopper loaders include five models with hourly capacities of 110-325 pounds. The four largest models have an optional proportioning valve.
Economizer's EP-ST sprue-removal robots have a patented gripper design and, as an option, a two-stage telescopic vertical arm.
Economizer is an operation of ACS Group of Wood Dale, Ill.
