Recycling Plastic and PET Banding


The redesigned Model 450 WM XHD Dual Drive Scrap Chopper is Sweed’s newest plastic banding scrap chopper and is quickly becoming a staple for packaging companies who are generating a significant amount of scrap plastic or PET banding.
Scrap choppers are the most cost effective way to efficiently dispose of plastic and PET strapping.  Choppers are the ideal way for companies to meet their waste recycling obligations and reduce their disposal fees while adding re-sale value to their waste product.  Additional benefits of a scrap chopper include reclaiming space for production and aiding in safety and housekeeping, ultimately, resulting in a better working environment.

A unique feature on Sweed’s new plastic banding chopper design is the dual drive feedworks.  Driving both feed rolls on the chopper driven allows the unit to process the scrap quickly and efficiently, even when the plastic banding is tangled in a nest of straps. The Model 450 WM XHD Dual Drive Scrap Chopper also features a 1 HP motor and added mass on the flywheel, which allows the scrap chopper additional cutting capacity.  It is capable of feeding many straps at one time and feeds at approximately 120 FPM.  The one stationary and one rotating knife, provide a cut length of about 3 inches. The wide infeed on this chopper makes feeding the strap an effortless task for the operator, allowing a user to feed large handfuls of plastic banding at once. This unit sits on a sturdy Sweed stand that moves from area to area on stout caster wheels.

The Model 450 WM XHD Dual Drive Scrap Chopper is the machine of choice for chopping large volumes of plastic or PET banding. Prior to the redesign of this chopper, a larger unit was required large quantities of plastic banding.  The Dual Drive unit has proven to be quite efficient in chopping large volumes of the plastic straps and is less expensive then a larger model!
