» GSL 180 Series

General Description:

The slow speed granulators in the GSL 180 range feature a staggered 180 mm diameter rotor with widths ranging from 180 to 430 mm. The rotor is directly driven by a geared motor. The low rotor speed reduces the noise level of the machine and creates less dust while grinding. The special design knives of the GSL series can be sharpened easily and do not need adjustment afterwards.The material is fed via a sound absorbing feed hopper that can be tailored to fit various applications and feeding ways. Depending on the requirements the machines can be fitted with a wide variety of hoppers, they are mounted on either low or high level base frames with matching suction bins or bag filling adapters. Quick snap fasteners and hand screws make access to the machine for cleaning and maintenance fast and easy.

Applications:

The GSL slow speed granulators of the 180 series are mainly used in injection and blow molding processes as beside the press machines to grind runners and sprues. The resulting granules are then immediately reintroduced into the production process. The machines can be used for rejected products in the inline recycling process as well. Different hopper and base frame designs make it possible to integrate the machine with most types of injection molding machines and robots.

Details

The curvature of the specially profiled rotor knives ensures a constant cutting radius after re-sharpening thus maintaining the original cutting gap. Awkward knife adjustment is no longer necessary.
Staggered rotor blades create an individual blade cut thus increasing the cutting torque. All of the machines in this series are therefore suitable for grinding more solid materials and thicker walled sprues.
The ZERMA Quick Snap System allows the lower front plate section to be easily removed for granulator cleaning. The lower front plate section is held in position by two sturdy lever clamps.

» GSL 200 Series

General Description

The slow speed granulators in the GSL 200 range feature a staggered 200 mm diameter rotor with widths ranging from 180 to 500 mm. The rotor is directly driven by a geared motor. The low rotor speed reduces the noise level of the machine and creates less dust while grinding. The special design knives of the GSL series can be sharpened easily and do not need adjustment afterwards.The material is fed via a sound absorbing feed hopper that can be tailored to fit various applications and feeding ways. Depending on the requirements the machines can be fitted with a wide variety of hoppers, they are mounted on either low or high level base frames with matching suction bins or bag filling adapters. Quick snap fasteners and hand screws make access to the machine for cleaning and maintenance fast and easy..

Applications

The GSL slow speed granulators of the 180 series are mainly used in injection and blow molding processes as beside the press machines to grind runners and sprues. The resulting granules are then immediately reintroduced into the production process. The GSL 200 series machines are more aggressive than the smaller 180 series and thus better suited for larger thin walled parts.The machines can be used for rejected products in the inline recycling process as well. Different hopper and base frame designs make it possible to integrate the machine with most types of injection molding machines and robots.

Details

The staggered rotor design creates an individual blade cut. The aggressive open rotor of the 200 series GSL makes it well suited for bigger volume parts such as bottles.
The curvature of the specially profiled rotor knives ensures a constant cutting radius after re-sharpening thus maintaining the original cutting gap. Awkward knife adjustment is no longer necessary.
The quick snap system makes access to the cutting chamber, suction trough and screen area fast and easy. The hinged screen holder simplifies screen installation.

» GSL 300 Series

General Description:

The slow speed granulators in the GSL 300 range feature a staggered 300 mm diameter rotor with widths ranging from 400 to 800 mm. The rotor is directly driven by a geared motor. The low rotor speed reduces the noise level of the machine and creates less dust while grinding. The special design knives of the GSL series can be sharpened easily and do not need adjustment afterwards.The material is fed via a sound absorbing feed hopper that can be tailored to fit various applications and feeding ways. Depending on the requirements the machines can be fitted with a wide variety of hoppers, they are mounted on either low or high level base frames with matching suction bins or bag filling adapters. Quick snap fasteners and hand screws make access to the machine for cleaning and maintenance fast and easy.

Applications:

The GSL slow speed granulators of the 300 series are mainly used in injection and blow molding processes as beside the press machines to grind runners and sprues. But they can be used as low noise central granulators for small throughput requirements as well. The stronger design of the 300 series GSLs allow them to be used for stronger and thicker materials while offering the same advantages regarding low noise and dust as the smaller GSL machines. All GSL models can be equipped with a built in blower system in case a vacuum loading system is not available, or to transport the ground material to bags for storage.

Details:

The curvature of the specially profiled rotor knives ensures a constant cutting radius after re-sharpening thus maintaining the original cutting gap. Awkward knife adjustment is no longer necessary.
Staggered rotor blades create an individual blade cut thus increasing the cutting torque. All of the machines in this series are therefore suitable for grinding more solid materials and thicker walled sprues.
Due to the Quick snap fasteners used on the GSL series machines, the machines can be opened for cleaning and maintenance quickly without the need for special tools.
