Auxiliaries: Film and fibers economically, effectively shredded

Vecoplan LLC, specializing in size reduction equipment, introduced its new RG42K-XL F industrial shredder, which is specifically designed to shred plastic film in what the company claims is the quickest and most efficient manner possible. Engineered to solve the “self-feeding” problem associated with flexible, high-tenacity materials, the RG24K-XL F is “economical to purchase, economical to operate, and delivers a quick ROI,” according to Marty Kennedy, Vecoplan’s executive VP. The RG42K-XL F features Vecoplan’s patented SureCut shredding system, which delivers built-in, two-stage auxiliary size reduction in a single pass. Other features include a special, reinforced close-tolerance screen configuration, and an application-specific “wedge” fixed counter knife. To accommodate high throughput, the shredder has built-in metering capabilities and thermal monitoring controls. In addition to preventing film from wrapping around the cutting rotor during processing, the SureCut system also delivers precise cut lengths, says the company.Additionally, the RG42K-XL F features a 42-by-52-inch hopper in-feed opening that provides true dump-and-run operation for a wide variety of loose or baled plastic films, as well as short pile carpet. The shredding chamber employs a patented Vecoplan single-shaft U-Rotor that is 15 inches in diameter, powered by a 60-hp drive motor, and embedded with 48 standard plus 29 nip cutting inserts. Each bolt-on cutting insert is cost effective and can be rotated to four different wear points before replacement. The RG42K-XL F comes with a lifetime rotor warranty and “equity payback guarantee” from Vecoplan. Vecoplan LLC, High Point, NC, U.S.A., +1 336-861-6070, www.vecoplanLLC.com
