The New Range of High Speed Shredders from Doppstadt: more power, more output, more environmentally friendly
From October 2017 environmental technology company Doppstadt will be launching its new range of high speed shredders, which will be exclusively available from Blue Group in the UK. The AK 560 and AK 635 EcoPower shredders will incorporate the latest technical updates and can be supplied with a new rear conveyor option. Doppstadt's AK 635 comes with an eight me-ter rear conveyor as standard, and the AK 560 can be fitted with a six-meter rear conveyor.
These new conveyors achieve new drop heights of over four or five meters, and optimise work processes: Transfer of the shredded material into subsequent machines or containers is simpli-fied, and stockpiles do not need to be cleared as often, as they can hold up to 25% more. The discharge conveyors can be extended and retracted hydraulically, and when configured for transportation, the vehicle length barely changes compared to the shorter conveyors.
Daniel Kürten, Doppstadt Product Manager said, "The new fast-running, environmentally friendly shredder solutions work faultlessly and efficiently. Six variants will be available, to suit different applications and budgets. There are large and small solutions, including both tracked and wheeled variations.
New models with more power
The AK 560 EcoPower is available with 2 or 3 axles, and the AK 635 EcoPower is available as a tracked vehicle or trailer. The trailers and trailer chassis are approved for road use with a max-imum speed of 50 mph, and the tracked vehicle can travel at two different speeds. All the ma-chines are powered by MTU/Mercedes Benz engines, which meet the legally required Euromot Stage IV final emission requirements.
The overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the shredders has also been improved, in line with the overall corporate strategy of Doppstadt. Its solutions are designed to meet the needs of the future and take into account the latest developments in technology and environmental protection. This owner-managed company develops and produces all its machines in-house. Thanks to this depth of knowledge and production expertise, the company can react quickly to new developments and challenges because it uses tried and tested technologies.
New rear basket with 3D design for waste wood
Doppstadt has also designed a new rear basket option for waste wood shredding applications, a feature which improves the uniformity of the end product. The focus is on reducing excess lengths while improving material structure. The basket is resistant to contaminants, and pro-tects the return belt from damage, as contaminants can no longer impact it directly, meaning the basket also minimises the risk of return belt blockages. The waste wood rear basket is available with different mesh sizes, and can be installed and used in all the models of the AK and DZ series.
