Welcome to the world of shredding and compressing – welcome to WEIMA! Our extensive range of size reduction machinery includes single-shaft shredders and four-shaft shredders as well as granulators, briquette presses, and draining and compression machinery. WEIMA manufactures single-shaft shredders and briquette presses for the nonwovens industry, allowing for the re-integration of nonwovens scrap into the production process while managing dangerous dust. This allows operations to increase safety and profitability while decreasing waste.

Adding a WEIMA machine to your operation can save you money in waste disposal costs, personnel, and sometimes even reduce your energy consumption each month. Green technology will reduce your operation’s environmental footprint as well. We offer in-stock machinery as well as custom units that will fit the exact needs of your operation and your application.

For more than 40 years our global operation has been focused on the art of shredding and compressing. We develop and produce in Germany and supply worldwide. Since the foundation of our company in 1986, we have delivered around 37,000 machines. As the world innovates, so do we. Destroy responsibly with WEIMA!

Technology highlights

WEIMA’s machinery line for the nonwovens industry is aimed at maximizing your operation’s profits and safety while decreasing mess and excess waste. The WEIMA WLK single-shaft shredder series offers many custom options for the recycling and reintegration of nonwovens, including the F+ rotor, which is ideal for shredding filaments and fibers, as well as a chilled rotor to keep temperatures down during shredding. These shredders can easily be integrated into a nonwovens processing line and can help maximize profits by eliminating the need to purchase virgin materials as often.

The dust particles that are released when nonwovens are cut or shredded can be a burden on manufacturers. This dust can be both messy and extremely dangerous in production environments. Installing a briquette press at the discharge of the dust collection system can help eliminate dusting in the plant and increase overall safety. A dust collection system can pneumatically convey any residual dust into a covered briquette press by using a rotary airlock. This eliminates the need for an employee to spend time cleaning up and transporting the dust and keeps the nearby machinery functioning in a dust-free environment.
