Product Portfolio
  • Shredding

      • Single-shaft shredders (VAZ) small series

      • The single-shaft shredder is the most versatile and widely used shredder and can operate without an additional feeding system in most applications. The material collected can be fed directly with dosing. The hydraulically driven ram feeds the material to the rotor. The rotor system, developed and patented in 1989, is able to handle almost all materials.

        The rotor of the single-shaft shredder (VAZ) turns particularly slowly and this, combined with the vertical material feed, makes it especially quiet and dust-free. The large- volume hopper and the patented rotor system optimise the shredding of wood, plastic, paper and other recyclables.
      • Single-shaft shredders (VAZ) medium-duty series

      • The single-shaft shredder is the most versatile and widely used shredder and can operate without an additional feeding system in most applications. The material collected can be fed directly with dosing. The hydraulically driven ram feeds the material to the rotor. The rotor system, developed and patented in 1989, is able to handle almost all materials. Optionally, the machines of this series can be equipped with a Flipper, which grants security against damages caused by tramp material and also makes it easy to remove the tramp material. Additionally they can also be provided with a bridge-breaker for the shredding of bulky and light materials.
      • Single-shaft shredders (VAZ) heavy-duty series

      • The single-shaft shredder is the most versatile and widely used shredder and can operate without an additional feeding system in most applications. The material collected can be fed directly with dosing. The hydraulically driven ram feeds the material to the rotor. The rotor system, developed and patented in 1989, is able to handle almost all materials. Optionally, the machines of this series can be equipped with a Flipper, which grants security against damages caused by tramp material and also makes it easy to remove the tramp material. Additionally they can also be provided with a bridge-breaker for the shredding of bulky and light materials.

        • no additional equipment, such as post presser or tilting hopper, is required
      • Drum chippers, horizontal

      • Essentially the drum chipper is indispensable in the wood processing industry owing to its enormous throughput and wide range of sizes and rotor systems. It is designed to perform a range of tasks, from the production of fuel chips for energy generation through to quality wood chips for the wood pulp industry. In a nutshell, it is used in industrial applications where wood chips are required as the starting material for a subsequent production process.
      • Chippers and mills, vertical

      • The VECOPLAN chippers or mills are stationary re-shredding machines equipped with a fast running knife, beater or bark chipping rotor. The main area, in which hammer mills are used, is the re-shredding of waste products from upstream processes in the timber industry, such as bark, log end pieces and demolition waste. The wood chips or regrinds produced are predominantly used as fuel in heating installations. Due to their robust design VECOPLAN chippers and mills are very reliable.
    • Connveying

        • Drag chain conveyors

        • Drag chain conveyors have an endless chain with feed dogs (cross ribs) which runs in a closed trough. This makes them suitable for transporting bulk materials. Depending on the design of the feed dogs and trough, material can be conveyed horizontally, on an incline or vertically. Bows can be installed allowing different conveyor sections to be combined.
          This makes them particularly suitable for use as discharge or distribution conveyors. Material can be conveyed in the lower run as well as the upper run.
        • Belt conveyors

        • Our flat and troughed belt conveyors have a modular design. They are easy to assemble to suit your requirements and can be subsequently modified and adapted. Our customers particularly appreciate the range of options that are available using the same components. And even if access is poor, these conveyors can be assembled on the spot in extremely confined spaces.
        • Screw conveyors

        • Bulk material reaches its destination well dosed, thoroughly mixed and evenly transported - that is why screw conveyors are particularly suitable for use in cement production plants. But semi-moist and fibrous materials can also be transported – it's all a question of the design. Depending on the application, screw conveyors can have one or more shafts, and can be horizontal or inclined.

          Key features of screw conveyors:
          • simple, compact and rugged design
          • the material to be conveyed can be loaded at any chosen position
          • sturdy, torsion-resistant steel construction
          • full flight welded to the screw shaft
          • individual choice of materials and wear lining on request
          • long service life, low maintenance

          Single screw delivery rate: 5 to 350 m³/h

        • Vibrating conveyors

        • It's not just the high conveying capacity of our vibrating conveyors (type VR) that makes them so efficient for transporting bulk materials and piece goods. Their low-maintenance continuous operation also makes them a sound long-term investment. Vibrating conveyors are ideal for feeding chippers or as discharge conveyors downstream of storage systems. They also serve to smooth the material flows . They can also conveniently be fitted with a screening zone or a metal-free zone in which a metal detector unit can be installed, and a maximum gradient of 3 degrees is possible.

          Key features of vibrating conveyors:
          • Eccentric shaft drive
          • High conveying capacity
          • Low-maintenance, continuous operation

      • Screening

          • Oscillation screens VSS

          • Our VSS oscillation screens have different aperture sizes to allow every form of residual or recyclable material to be screened out and transported onwards via belt conveyors for further processing.
          • Disc separator

          • Powerful and versatile:
            Our disc screens can effortlessly separate materials such as comminuted biomass or municipal waste.
          • Star screening machines

          • More than just practical, it's excellent:
            The star screen is ideal for screening large volume flows, of bark for example.
          • Drum Screen VTS

          • The drum screen is primarily used at sawmills and at the processing of compost.
            Several fractions can be sorted with a max. troughput capacity of 100 m3/h.
        • Separating Technology

            • Conveyor with magnetic head drum TMT

            • The conveyor with magnetic head drum (TMT) is particularly easy to handle and
              requires absolutely minimal maintenance. It is ideal for use in the separation of magnetisable ferrous metal parts from pre-shredded recyclables such as wood, plastic, paper, ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It is also very easy to assemble: The conveyor is mounted directly below the ejection port of a shredder.
            • Permanent magnetic drum PMT

            • Perfect installation: The permanent magnetic drum with housing (PMT) is installed directly downstream of a conveyor, e.g. a trough chain conveyor, conveyor belt or vibrating conveyor, and is ideal for separating magnetisable ferrous metal parts from comminuted material.
            • Permanent tubular magnet PRM

            • Our permanent tubular magnet can magically attracts ferrous metals thanks to the integrated permanent magnet that maintains its static magnetic field without having to be energised. And, what's more, it can be installed in the extraction line itself, preferably in the horizontal or rising line, where it quickly and efficiently separates any magnetisable ferrous metal parts that may be present.
            • Overbelt magnetic separator VÜB

            • The overbelt magnetic separator VÜB is ideally suited for the separation of course material and ferrous metal parts and is installed in the conveying line itself, ideally at the transfer point between a belt conveyor or vibrating conveyor and a subsequent conveyor.
            • Non-ferrous separation

            • The non-ferrous metal separator effortlessly separates non-ferrous metal, such as copper, zinc, bronze and brass, from wood, domestic refuse, plastics, etc. It must, of course, be integrated into the conveying line.

              The non-ferrous metal separator VNES can be installed in the conveying line itself for reliable separation of non-ferrous metals from wood, domestic refuse, plastics, etc.
            • Air separator

            • Air separators are used in a wide variety of working areas. These include, among others, alternative fuel production, waste processing, the timber industry etc.

              The air separator acts as a safety measure during the subsequent re-shredding of the input material. In this way, high costs for replacement and wearing parts for re-shredding can be avoided. Moreover, the quality of the fuels is optimised by using the air separator.

              The separation of the materials in the air separator is achieved by an uniform and single-layered homogeneous distribution of the input material, which is fed into the separating drum of the air separator across the entire belt width of the air separator. Heavy materials and critical foreign objects are separated from the light materials by means of air injection.

              The light materials are transported by means of a high-speed airflow into the expansion chamber, where the air speed is reduced to such a degree that the light materials can be transported on a subsequent belt conveyor to the following processing stage.

              The injected air is removed again in the upper section of the air separator and, depending on the application, is sucked in again by the fan or fed into a filter unit.

              In order to obtain high-quality recycling raw materials, an air separator with three fractions is used to achieve higher separation quality.
            • Metal detectors

            • Metal detectors serve to protect shredders and other machines by preventing metal from entering in the feedstock. Different versions of metal detectors are available – as detector coils mounted below conveyors, directly integrated in conveyors or as fully enclosed detector coils with inlet dimensions up to 1,000 mm x 2,000 mm.

              Overview of different versions:

              Under-conveyor coil
              Metal detector for installation under belt conveyors, with search heights up to roughly 120 mm

              Under-trough coil
              Metal detector for installation in the trough of vibrating conveyors, with search heights up to roughly 180 mm

              For large chippers with precise sensitivity adjustment, search heights up to roughly 1,000 mm
          • Storing

              • Toploader

              • The patented Toploader system is the most economical storage technology for various bulk materials like wood chips, old timber, bark, RDF, corn, grass, pellets and plastics. Applications are for example boiler feeding in biomass power plants, receiving stations for larger storage units in the fuel area, storage boxes for wood chips and shavings in pellet plants, substrate storage and feeding of biogas plants.

                The Toploader system provides for fully automatic box evacuation without operating personnel. One or more boxes with each up to 400 m³ content get filled from the open side on plane ground area by semi-trailer, tipping scrap skips or wheel loader. The removal is effected with the Toploader on the opposite over a sloping ramp to the subsequent conveying technology with a conveying capacity of up to 100 m³/h. There is a paddle suspended on one side of a movable slide by guide bars that is continuously moved to and fro. During the return movement the paddle is raised and gets re-placed on the floor in front of the material - a new cycle begins.

                Drive, lifting device and mechanical devices are always outside of the bulk material, accessible at any time and easy to maintain. Combined with a simple concrete bottom plate, pre-casted concrete blocks, asphalt surfaces or metal plates there are versatile, cost-effective design options and there is no pit at the unloading side required
              • Push/pull rod dischargers

              • Our push/pull rod discharger is designed for large storage capacities and discharge rates of up to 300 m³/h. It is particularly suitable for continuous feeding of boiler systems.
                Different versions of the push/pull rod discharger are available – as a mobile or fixed type and also as a bunker. Force-reduced versions are also available, which permit low-cost concrete construction.
              • Loading and unloading conveyors

              • Good and flexible: Our loading and unloading conveyors can be used as units that can be moved up, down and sideways and have conveying capacities of up to 300 m³/h. But that's not all they can do, they are also suitable for filling silos and loading lorries or as fully automatic boiler feeding systems. This is due not least to the flexible adjustment options, such as a storage height of roughly 15 m and a length of up to 30 m. Furthermore, any number of boxes can be arranged side-by-side.
              • Drag chain dischargers

              • Drag chain dischargers are provided for discharge of silos via conveying chains, for dosed discharge of intermediate storages and fort he feeding of heating plants. They are available as 2-strand conveyors or with single chains, depending on the material being conveyed. A mobile version is also available.
              • Screw dischargers

              • Our screw discharger has an impressive discharge capacity of between 1 and 400 m³/h and consists of several screw shafts in a shared trough construction. One or two discharge openings facilitate optimum dosing of material supplied to the next process. Particle sizes up to 100 mm and bulk densities of between 40 and 400 kg/m³ can be handled. Container sizes of up to 80 m³ are possible using screw diameters of between 250 and 800 mm. This is why screw dischargers are particularly suitable for feeding boiler systems, for animal bedding packaging lines and also for feeding and discharge of hammer mills / chip shredders, drying plants in the pellet manufacturing industry and for alternative fuel (RDF) in the cement industry.

                  • Plastics

                  • Plastic is environment protection! Conserve resources, save energy. Technical plastics are largely made of crude oil. Due to their technical characteristics, production remains from plastics and sorted plastics are highly suitable for economic recycling. Thus, the recycling of plastic materials helps significantly to preserve crude oil resources and to manufacture new products economically. Our customers use VECOPLAN shredding technology to win homogenous fraction of grain sizes perfectly fitted for recycling purposes from production waste, mixed plastic materials, plastic films, transport containers (IBC) and tubes. We take on the technologically challenging task to shred even the most difficult commodities such as highly tear-resistant synthetic fibres, airbags, big bags, textiles, ropes and laces. Constantly in dialogue with our customers, we are always ready to take on new challenges. Using our own innovative technological developments, e. g. the film and fibre rotor, even these materials are easily shredded with a minimum of energy expenditure.
