Anyone seeking a durable, single-shaft shredder featuring tried and tested technology in the lower price range will most probably find exactly what they need at the booth of shredder specialists WEIMA Maschinenbau GmbH from Ilsfeld at this year's LIGNA in Hanover, Germany. The new developed WL 4 will make its debut in order to be able to respond even more individually to user requirements in the future.
Sophisticated technology at the best price-performance ratio, a robust design and an extremely long service life describe the single-shaft shredder to the essentials. Like the entire series, the WL 4 is equipped with a hopper in log space design, which avoids material bridges for particularly large feed parts. With a working width of 600 mm, a rotor diameter of 252 mm and a drive power of 18.5 kW, wood waste of all kinds can be shredded without any problems. The shredding of the material is carried out between the rotor knives and the fixed counter-knife, which in the new edition of the WL 4 scores with its double applicability.
The frame of the machine was redesigned. An optimized welding process ensures higher dimensional and shape accuracy. The reinforcement of the side walls increases the stability of the very robust WL 4.
The single-shaft shredder is also interesting due to the chip tray that can be dismantled in series and the integrated installation aids for screen assembly. In order to protect the hydraulic unit from contamination, it is located in a welded-in oil sump and is easier to maintain thanks to the Plug & Play plug. A more even power transmission is ensured by the newly optimized drive train, which now only consists of 2 power belts.
In addition, the WL 4 presents itself with an improved cutting geometry. Revised broaching knives of 30 x 30 mm ensure perfect material throughput.
What remains strong is WEIMA's demand to develop robust shredding machines for the timber industry with high material throughput. The results of our demands culminate ...
