Thirty five years after the launch of its first two shaft shredder, Austrian manufacturer Wagner is “going back to its roots” with it new WTS 500 universal double-shaft shredder for the recycling industry, which is to debut at IFAT in Munich later this month.
According Wagner, customers who opt for the new double-shaft shredder WTS 500 can expect more: More efficiency, more productivity and more service. The traditional Austrian company has stood for this for decades.
Wagner’s specialist area is the development, design and production of recycling machines. Alongside single and double-shaft shredders, the company successfully produces efficient perforators, tyre separators and bale breakers.
The Austrian built WTS 500 is more economical and impresses not only with its diversity in application, but in particular with to its innovative technology.
Impressive Shredder technology
Wagner said that from the first glance the new shredder underlines how has focused on the needs of the recycling industry its development department has been, with no compromise when it comes to quality and user-friendliness.
The WTS 500 is equipped with a robust split housing, which was said to guarantee rapid and simple changing of the cutting discs.
Depending on requirement, these discs (blades) are available in a wide range of qualities and shapes with the new double-shaft shredder. A bulkhead system for optimum sealing of the bearing against dirt and liquids is a further bonus integrated by the developers.
Two Low-wear Drive Systems with 10 Programs
When it comes to the shaft drives, Wagner has also taken a new route. Two separate drive systems (5.5 kW each) run smoothly and quietly at 15-25 revolutions per minute, which makes the shredder low wearing, low dust generating and quiet.
Furthermore, the company explained that each shaft can be individually operated with a freely programmable PLC control with 10 processing programs. The high quality of the complete drive system was said to stand out with its quality bearings and other components, which have been used to manufacture a top end product through craftsmanship “Made in Austria”.
The Control: Innovative and Sophisticated
An additional highlight of the WTS 500 is the truly simple operation of the shredder. The 10 different processing programs can be actuated with ease, through user-friendly quick selection at the touch of a button.
The display then constantly shows status messages for the respective shredder processes. The two drive systems can also be separately actuated for performance optimisation, which results in an increased throughput. Integrated overload protection guarantees protection of the cutting shafts.
Upshot: An Optimum Alternative.
With the WTS 500 double-shaft shredder, Wagner said that it is bringing a well thought out and optimum solution to the market. Technically sophisticated and with high quality processing, the WTS 500 will soon be in use in numerous operations. And this will not least guarantee attractive value for money.
