New tyre shredder installation
CONICA’s new HS16 tyre shredder is in development to replace the current shredder which has served the plant here in Newark for 16 years.
In the sixteen years of what you could describe as very hard manual labour, the shredder has processed more than 6 million truck tyres.
As the quality and durability required for our facility isn’t commercially available, we manufacture our own process equipment.
Stage one was the welding to adapt and make the frame tailor made for use.
Stage two is now complete; the hydraulic rams, slider rod, bearing housing, blade table and tyre bale knife have all been installed, plus it’s had a coat of paint.
It is starting to look quite the piece already.
