Product Spotlight: GF Series Film Grinder

In today’s entry, we would like to highlight the features of our GF Series Film Grinder for automatic scrap recycling applications.

GF Series Film Grinder with Roll Feeder and Air Eliminator

The GF Series grinders from PCC are used as part of an ASR Automatic Scrap Recycling system for in-line recycling of production film scrap. GF grinders are designed to provide efficient, uniform grinding o film scrap. There are four cutting chamber sizes available along with different horsepower motors to accurately match the grinder to the scrap rate. Grinders are available in configurations that accept edge and bleed trims, roll scrap, and loose scrap.

Film Grinder Cutting Chamber

Standard carbide-coated knives are employed in the system, increasing the time between sharpening. The rotor knives approach the stationary bed knife, or knives, at a steep angle to ensure a clean scissor cut. This technique is used for maximum bulk-density and flow of ground scrap. The open rotor design improves airflow for cooling, permitting the highest possible throughput.
