Q: What is your product?
The Weima Spider HRS Modular Single Shaft Shredder Series. Weima has released two new models in the series: the Spider 1000 and the Spider 2000. The modular system offers three input feed types: horizontal, round and sloping.
Q: How does it work?
The basic system consists of two modules: the cutting system with one rotor and robust blades of various shapes and sizes; and an option of three pressing systems modulated to the material to be shredded.
The horizontal pusher is the solution for all plastics; the round, curved pusher is designed for foils, fibres and filaments; and the sloping pusher is ideally suited for feeding hollow articles.
Q: Where would it ideally be used?
The Spider HRS Series has been adopted by the recycling industry for a huge spectrum of materials from textiles to electrical waste.
Q: How is it different?
Weima Spider is a new generation machine offering modular flexibility and convenience. In addition to the three models, there are two different drives that offer extremely high torque to low energy usage.
Q: What benefits does it offer?
Features include a patented all-purpose rotor for high- throughput, low-energy consumption and lower wear costs. The Weima Spider offers controlled feeding, precise cutting and easy screen access.
It has more than six types of knives to meet every material processing requirement. A wear-reducing, roller-guided pusher prevents materials jamming, while
the SpaceCut feature increases the efficiency of pipe and longer linear material processing. This is a robust German-engineered machine.
Initial cost must be weighed against savings and efficiencies delivered by the Weima Spider. The high number of UK and Republic of Ireland Spider customers must reflect the overall price return efficiencies.
Q: What about maintenance?
Maintenance is centralised to a sliding draw tray under the machine for ease of access and maximum protection from damage. Longer run periods between maintenance have also been incorporated into the design
Q: What is its life span?
Weima’s philosophy of regular maintenance using genuine parts has some machines still delivering the optimum operational performance after more than 15 years.
Some machines are still in daily use as an integral component in the recycling process after 15 years. The new generation Spider is of a similar pedigree.
Q: How is it future-proofed?
The machine has been designed to meet future proofing head-on with its modular design. With the introduction of two further machines to the series and the many optional extras and drive configurations, this machine is future-proof.
