Weima Maschinenbau GmbH has developed the PreCut pre-shredder for an exotic application: to shred plastics and other types of waste that then are turned into alternative fuel.
That type of shredding usually happens in a multistage plant that does both pre- and post-shredding. Weima, which has made post-shredders for many years, now has entered the market for pre-shredders. Both types of shredding enable simply separation of material streams into different grades.
The PreCut's rotor has a working width of 10 feet. Cutting-turning crowns can be reversed four times.
The firm's U.S. unit is Weima America Inc. in Fort Mill, S.C.
