Weima is also showcasing recycling in acঞon at NPE via its recycling partnership with PLASTICS and Commercial Plasঞcs Recycling Inc. The Weima WKS shredding line is making its North American debut on the tradeshow floor and is billed as ideal for processing everything from bulky objects to tear-resis- tant fibers and film. A swing ram on rolls is posiঞoned inside the cuমng chamber, providing for consistent infeed of materials. An inspecঞon flap inside the chamber allows for easy access for maintenance to clear any foreign objects that may have been introduced during the shredding process. These shredders come equipped with hydraulic or power-belt drives, depending on the applicaঞon. The rotor type also de- pends on the applicaঞon—a V-rotor for lumps and large objects, or an F-rotor for fibers and film. The screen size can be cho- sen to fine-tune the final shredded product to the ideal size, including for reintroducঞon into a producঞon line or for recycling. In addiঞon, the large Weima WLK 30 Super Jumbo is on display. This machine is sized to meet the needs of operaঞons with large pieces of scrap or large throughput quanঞঞes. The WLK Super Jumbo features a rotor diameter of 700 mm. Visitors to the Weima booth can view the inside of the machine's hopper, which will not be in oper- aঞon but is open for inspecঞon. There are more than 80 opঞonal features available on these machines. According to Audrey Brew- er, Weima markeঞng coordinator, the Super Jumbo line of machinery is both versaঞle and reliable, with robust construcঞon. "This is also a great line of machinery if an opera- ঞon's applicaঞon requires custom seমngs," she says. | (803) 802-7170 57
