Designed for processing injection mold startup purge with a direct-drive, shredder-style rotor, the new CLS 600+ Light Duty Single Shaft Shredder Series from Cumberland Engineering (South Attleboro, MA) reduces startup purge and flash to less than 4-inch particles that can then be granulated by a beside-the-press granulator. Standard hardened rotors with replaceable cutters and cutter seats are designed for processing the thicker sections of startup purge and blowmolding flash.
The CLS offers a low-speed rotor (72 rpm) that transmits high cutting torque for tough applications, while the low-speed cutting action also reduces noise levels. Equipped with a feed opening of 21.7 by 19.3 inches, the CLS also features a 12-inch-diameter drum-style rotor for efficient cutting of various scrap. Four-edge, 1.3-inch (34-mm) reversible cutters with bolt-in replaceable knife seat provide easy maintenance. Double-walled manual feed hoppers can be positioned for feeding through the front, back, or side of the machine, while a tangential feed hopper is used for easy ingestion of material without the need for a hydraulic ram. —[email protected]
