What is the scrap metal shredder?

The twin-shaft metal shredder adopts double rollers for opposite rolling shear, and it is mainly used to crush various metal and other wastes, such as scrap iron, scrap steel, scrap aluminum alloy, oil barrels, cans, and waste household appliances.

The final materials are in small pieces, which are space-saving, convenient for transportation, and recycling. The metal shredder machine has the characteristics of high crushing efficiency, low noise, low energy consumption, and high output, which embody the advantages of low speed and high torque shear design.

This series of scrap metal shredders is widely used in the recycling of waste metal products, waste plastics, waste rubber, textiles, wood, and other large-volume wastes.

  • The size of the feed hopper is 60mm x 60mm, and the hopper size can be customized based on specific needs.
  • Two motors are equipped with two gear reducers, ensuring stable work and avoiding noise.
  • The protective cover on the pulley can play the role of dust prevention and safety protection.
  • The guard rails and ladder are convenient for personnel to view and ensure safety.
  • The blades of the metal crusher are made of high-strength and wear-resistant material. We offer blades with different hardness for selection to meet different demands. The blades adopt multiple claws and other structures to ensure that the claws can firmly lock the waste materials when tearing them.

Working principle of metal crusher

The reduction motor of the scrap metal shredder adopts a directly connected worm gear reducer. The gear motor is directly installed on the driving shaft of the shredder and transmits the power to the driven shaft through the speed change of large and small gears, to form a relative movement between the helical tooth cutter disc on the driving shaft and the driven shaft.

The spiral tooth cutter discs on the driving shaft and the driven shaft are staggered, so that the materials are squeezed, torn, and sheared at the same time.

Highlights of industrial metal shredder

  • Wide range of applications. The metal scrap shredder can be used to tear up scrap steel and scrap iron, and can also process scrap aluminum, aluminum profiles, circuit boards, engine oil filter elements, vehicle shells, electric devices, raw aluminum castings, leather, wood, plastics, bones, and other materials.
  • The cutter head of the metal shredder has the advantages of strong shredding and high crushing efficiency.
  • Low-speed gear reducer has high transmission efficiency, stable operation, and low noise.
  • The torque is large. This scrap steel, iron metal shredder is suitable for materials of various volumes, especially for crushing waste materials with large volumes and irregular shapes.
  • Easy operation and labor-saving.
