Higher Throughputs in Film/Fiber Shredding

Vecoplan LLC in Archdale, N.C., has nearly doubled the throughput of its SureCut rotary grinder for film and fiber by combining this unusual single-shaft shredder with an equally unusual high-torque, synchronous permanent-magnet motor.

Vecoplan LLC in Archdale, N.C., has nearly doubled the throughput of its SureCut rotary grinder for film and fiber by combining this unusual single-shaft shredder with an equally unusual high-torque, synchronous permanent-magnet motor. SureCut technology uses primary cutters on a rotor plus wedge-shaped bed knives and auxiliary nip cutters to prevent wrapping of film and fiber. This is the second model to which Vecoplan has applied the HiTorc drive, which reportedly consumes around 85% less energy, reverses easily, offers high torque at all speeds, and needs little maintenance because it has no gear boxes or belts.
