NPE2024, the premiere event for the plastics industry, is right around the corner, and WEIMA will be demonstrating its technology and sustainable solutions designed to meet the evolving needs of the plastics sector.

At the main WEIMA booth, visitors can explore the latest advancements in plastic shredding, recycling, and waste management, all aimed at enhancing efficiency, increasing circularity, and maximizing value throughout the plastics lifecycle. WEIMA will have more employees at this show than any other show before, with English, Spanish, and Chinese speakers available.

From compact shredders to high-capacity granulators, WEIMA has a comprehensive range of solutions tailored to address the challenges faced by plastics manufacturers, recyclers, and processors. The WLK 10, WLK 800 F+, and WKS 2200 single-shaft shredders will be on display on the show floor.

WEIMA will have two booths positioned in the main hall in the Recycling & Sustainability Solutions zone and the West Hall, as well as a full line of machinery operational outside. There will also be a presentation within the Sustainability Hub in the Tangerine Ballroom where WEIMA will demonstrate a practical application for the reuse of shredded and re-processed plastic scrap.

The WLK 10 single-shaft shredder

The WLK 10 single-shaft shredder stands out as a versatile solution for processing a wide range of plastic materials. With its robust design and V-rotor technology, this shredder efficiently tackles plastic lumps, pipes, automotive parts, PET bottles, PE/PP bottles, canisters, buckets, paper products, cardboard, and even light metals.

Equipped with a 1000 mm rotor and a lift-up screen basket for easy maintenance, the WLK 10 offers added convenience and accessibility for operators. Its adaptable configurations ensure optimal performance tailored to each specific application, while its seamless integration into a two-stage solution further enhances its versatility and efficiency.

The WLK 800 F+ shredder for film, fibre, and filaments

Like the WLK 10, the WLK 800 F+ is built to handle a wide range of materials, but it is focused on materials that are prone to wrapping. This shredder's hopper is designed so that it can handle large volumes of material with ease. Equipped with a hydraulically operated screen basket, the WLK 800 offers easy access for maintenance and cleaning, ensuring uninterrupted operation. Its variable-speed drive system allows for precise control over the shredding process, while its durable F+ rotor— designed specifically to process film, fibre, and filaments — ensures consistent performance and reliability while preventing material wrapping. The WLK 800 F+ is ideal for businesses looking to optimize their material processing operations and maximize productivity.

The WKS 2200 up close and accessible

The WEIMA WKS 2200 can efficiently process plastics, paper, textiles, and more. Its adaptable design seamlessly integrates into diverse manufacturing and recycling processes, offering businesses a flexible waste management solution. The user-friendly control panel with touchscreen PLC ensures swift operations and energy-efficient material processing. Its massive rotor, with a diameter of 500 mm and a length of 2,200 mm, will be visible on the show floor. The built-in inspection flap provides easy access to the cutting chamber for maintenance tasks, and the lift-up screen allows for effortless cleanup and knife rotations, enhancing operational ease and precision cutting. The inspection flap will also be open and approachable on the show floor for showgoers to see up close.

An Official Recycler of NPE2024

Outside the main hall, a WEIMA WLK 15 single-shaft shredder and two LM 600/1000 granulators will be operational as part of WEIMA's Destroy Responsibly program. The Destroy Responsibly program was designed to make trade shows greener by diverting demonstration scrap from a landfill by repurposing it.

At NPE2024, WEIMA's size-reduction machinery will be shredding plastic scrap in real-time in the Recycling Zone behind West Hall. The material will then be transported off-site and reintroduced into plastic production processes by Commercial Plastics Recycling, Inc. The goal is simple—WEIMA and the other Offical Recyclers who are participating in this program are aiming to recycle 100 percent of the plastic scrap generated on the show floor in 2024.

By emphasizing sustainability and resource conservation, the Destroy Responsibly program aims to reiterate the significance of practical and environmental waste management options within the plastics industry.

Alternative options for size reduction

While shredding remains WEIMA's core focus within the plastics industry, its expertise extends to draining and compressing processes as well. Size reduction through compression plays a crucial role in facilitating the transportation of bulky goods and the resale of valuable materials for reintegration.

WEIMA boasts a diverse range of briquetting, packaging, and drainage presses, offering comprehensive solutions for waste management. The range of compression machinery excels in converting surplus waste into valuable forms. WEIMA's compression solutions for the plastics industry include the compression of shavings or swarf for the recovery of valuable cutting fluids as well as post-industrial plastic packaging and plastic fines.
