Grinders for special productions

Among the latest developments for rubber and plastics grinding applications, Previero presented at K 2022 the new MU 500 M range of grinders for special productions. For seventy years, the grinders of the M series have represented one of the best products of the company in terms of sturdiness, reliability, cutting efficiency and easy maintenance. 


Compared to the previous versions, the new M range keeps the rotor with 500 mm diameter, the cooling system for the rotor and the fixed blades and all the other main features, while the design of the machine has been renewed to allow the replacement of the rotating blade supports with the aim of optimising the cutting angle according to the material to be processed.


Great attention has also been given to loading flexibility, with the integration of a guillotine cutter and a roller-type feeder in addition to the standard loading system with belt. The machine can be completed with wear-resistant coatings for the most demanding applications and with an Industry 4.0-ready control system. 


Thanks to these engineering improvements, the new range ensures a reduction of up to 30% in energy consumption and a significant increase in output even with small diameter grilles.
