A new single-shaft shredder is designed for high-output size reduction of films. It has built-in metering capability to solve "self-feeding" problems experienced with tough, flexible films, preventing film from wrapping around the rotor and providing precise cut lengths. Vecoplan's SureCut system provides two-stage cutting in a single pass. Wedge-type fixed knife is designed specifically for the application. Model RG42K-XL-F has a 42 x 52 in. hopper opening that accepts loose or baled film. Its 15-in.-diam. U-Rotor has a 60-hp drive and 76 bolt-on cutting inserts that can be rotated four times before replacement. Tel: (336) 861-6070 . www.vecoplanllc.com
