SWEED, represented by Australian Warehouse Solutions (AWS) has released a scrap chopper for plastic strapping. The Model 450 Wide Mouth Turbo Chopper is designed to take four to eight plastic straps at a time and quickly chop them into 50mm cut-lengths.
It has a one horse power electrical motor, measures 900mm x 650mm x 325mm and weighs 120kg. Its infeed opening measures 87mm x 19mm. Strapping is introduced to the infeed funnel. The feedworks (pinch rolls) grab the material and pull it into rotating knife path. The feedworks continue to pull until the material is consumed or the operator releases the feedworks with the release lever.
The infeed funnel with has an anti-kickback flap. The knives can be rotated four times for extended life and a hinged front guard allows for easy routine servicing.
