The VAZ 1600 from the medium-duty single-shaft shredder series is available in the sizes S and M. Different rotor designs and geometries mean the VAZ 1600 is capable of shredding wood waste, paper, data storage media, solid plastics, plastic film, industrial waste, packaging and much more. In order to increase the throughput when shredding bulky and very light materials, the machine can also be fitted with an optional bridge-breaker. In addition to the standard drive via asynchronous motor, the patented HiTorc drive is also available, which permits variable speed adjustment and reduces power consumption up to 60% compared to the standard drive system. The drive capacities range from 37 to 90 kW with the standard drive. Machines provided with the HiTorc drive can have a drive capacity of 62 up to 110 kW. The output can vary between 600 and 3.000 kg/h, depending on the version and screen mesh size.
