Utrecht, The Netherlands – July 13, 2021 – 3devo, who focuses on desktop-based material development and recycling solutions, is launching a Smart 2-in-1 Shredder and Granulator on July 15, 2021. By combining these two powerful motors, you’ll be sure to get precise regrinds in a fraction of the time. These features allow you to optimize cutting speeds, particle sizes, and materials feeding input according to the application and material type, all automated by Smart settings. The GP20 Shredder Hybrid adds to the company’s continuing efforts to bring simple and flexible recycling solutions.
Bridging The Gap
Following the needs of a market that is constantly evolving, more and more companies want to innovate faster by relying on in-house tools – taking full control over their entire project from R&D to small-scale production. By having the right tool at hand, this can easily pick up the speed of a project and eliminate the reliance of third-parties . The GP20 Shredder Hybrid is a product range developed to bridge the gap between R&D and manufacturing applications.
The GP20 makes it simple for any researcher to move to production – or production back to R&D. The powerful autonomous system gives the same desired results at any given scale. Offering a modular dual-part design, the new GP20 not only reduces the transitional time between applications, but can also scale up into an in-house production tool. Thus, the GP20 is the first Shredder Series that grows alongside each project seamlessly.
Safe and Effective For Any Recycling Application
Focused on giving the highest output, the automated system controls the feeding of any thermoplastic thrown into it. As multiple sensors react to how your materials perform, the system ensures that the shredder responds to the material, preventing it from degrading within the cutting chamber and ensuring your safety.
“We listened to the feedback our customers came with from our previous shredder. Safety has always been our top priority. So next to the new hopper design, which prevents any direct access to harmful components, we included smart sensors throughout, which ensures that the machine doesn’t start shredding until all the safety requirements are met.” says Mike Reinalda, 3devo’s Mechanical Engineer.
Save More. Waste Less.
With trial-and-error processes being key within R&D, the GP20 Shredder Hybrid was designed with thoroughness in mind. Necessary components are easily accessible and removable to clean out any debris of your regrinds making the transition between materials faster than ever.
Timo Van der Laak, 3devo’s Material Specialist explains, “Similar to most of our clients, we work with various polymers, so the flexibility of materials that the GP20 can shred is beneficial. But with the multiple polymers that we shred, it’s crucial that we can clean the machine thoroughly to prevent contamination in our experiments.”
