Roetgen/Germany and Posnan/Poland, January 2024.
FLEXAL Group Sp. z o. o., Posnan, is now a sales partner of Hellweg Maschinenbau in Poland. The company will be responsible for sales, maintenance and technical advice for the complete range of Hellweg grinders, which are renowned for their robustness and reliability.

As a distributor of leading global manufacturers of machines for thermoplastics and rubber processing as well as automation solutions, FLEXAL has over twenty years of experience in machine sales and extensive knowledge of the technological processes used in the plastics industry. In addition to grinders from Hellweg, the FLEXAL product range also includes pellet dryers, centralised feeding systems, conveyor belts, laboratory extruders, robots, dosing devices and much more.

Hellweg is a global manufacturer of digitally controlled grinders for effective, energy-saving plastics recycling. The portfolio ranges from small units for grinding sprues to high-performance systems for solid parts, films and sheets with a throughput of five tonnes per hour and more.

Grinders for every application
The MDSi 340/150 Smart Control machine-side-grinder is the most powerful model in the series with drive outputs from 1.5 kW to 4 kW for grinding capacities from 10 kg/h to 80 kg/h. Its main area of application is the raw material-saving return of even the bulkiest sprue stars, sprue spiders or sprue ladders directly to one or more injection moulding machines. A feed device for film edge trims is optional.

The central grinders in the 300 series from Hellweg combine a compact design with high performance. Thanks to the sturdy machine housing and the high moment of inertia of the massive, solid rotor, they enable high-throughput shredding of thick-walled moulded parts, plates, sprues, pipes and profiles and, when using a special BR version rotor, even the single-stage shredding of massive start-up lumps.

Hellweg’s newly developed MDSGi 1500/600 wet grinder is equipped with a forced feed system, for film recycling. Robust and durable, it offers an unrivalled ratio between throughput and energy consumption, resulting in very low operating costs. Its cutting geometry is also outstanding, producing flakes with consistently optimum quality and perfect particle size distribution and geometry for further processing.

The digital Smart Control system, which is part of all systems, records parameters such as power consumption, motor speed and bearing temperatures as well as the condition of blades, screens and V-belts. Because it can continuously optimise the ratio between motor load and throughput, it ensures particularly economical operation with minimal effort for the operating personnel.
