12.08.2019 Plastics recycling technology at K-Show

Vecoplan, Bad Marienberg, Germany, will be exhibiting machines and systems that shred, convey and process primary and secondary raw materials on Stand B59, Hall 9, at K 2019 which takes place 16-23 October in Düsseldorf. Visitors will be able to get their first glimpse of a highly efficient shredder that is equipped with a flexible drive concept.

This single-stage shredder forms part of the  new VIZ series (Vecoplan Infinity Shredders). The machine has been designed in such a way that, depending on the requirements, it can be equipped either with a high-torque, quick-start HiTorc drive or with the company’s frequency-controlled, belt-type direct drive. Both systems are patented and benefit from a high degree of energy efficiency.

One particular highlight of the machine is its great flexibility in terms of the cutting geometry: it can be precisely adapted to different input and output requirements by changing the rotors and blades and by selecting the right screen. The performance can be precisely determined by the interface. Key advantages include short set-up times and a high level of adaptability to cater for different output requirements.

However, Vecoplan offers solutions not only for mechanical but also for chemical processing. The company is represented at the VDMA Circular Economy Forum in Düsseldorf. ‘Plastic-to-fuel’ systems convert different types of waste plastic into diesel or petroleum fuel, for example. The company provides the high-performance shredding technology required by these systems in order to process the input material appropriately.


With the V-ECO (pictured), Vecoplan already offers what is widely believed to be the market’s best plastic film shredder; the new VIZ has been designed to shred other, even more demanding, plastic materials
