Grinder takes on large, bulky parts while minimizing fly back.

Foremost Machine Builders Inc., Fairfield, N.J., will display its Model QG-1814 Futura Series Plastic Scrap Grinder at NPE2015 (March 23-27; Orlando; Booth 2063). Foremost says the machine features a contra-skewed mounted-knife arrangement that’s available in either two-bladed hook or three-bladed high-shear rotor options.


The right angle cutting chamber incorporates an offset rotor allowing the Futura to accept large bulky parts while minimizing fly back. Foremost notes that this model is also equipped with integral sound absorption cabinetry and a double-walled hopper for quieter grinding.


At NPE, the unit will be displayed with an air-relief elbow on top of the handfed hopper. Foremost notes that this particular package is ideal for reclaiming blow molded containers.
