As a manufacturer & distributor of plastic packaging products, FROMM Packaging is heavily invested in the importance of recycling, sustainability and waste minimisation.
If it cannot be recycled, it's important to minimise waste costs and associated transportation of waste.
Sweed Strap Choppers turn waste into a recyclable asset. Simply feed your unwanted strap into the machine, and it will chop it up and discard the pieces into the bin.
Within the range of Sweed strap choppers, there are machines for low volumes of strapping waste or high volumes found in traditional heavy industry.
Q: How do I know if my company needs a scrap chopper?
To decide if your company would benefit from a chopper, you must first evaluate how your company currently manages its scrap:
Q: Why should I buy a scrap chopper when I can throw my scrap into a bin?
Q: Will I need to hire an additional employee to operate a scrap chopper?
No. You’re already paying an employee to handle your scrap once, just to cut strapping off a load. Instead of that employee throwing the scrap on the floor, or in the garbage, have them feed it into a scrap chopper! If employees are handling by-products more than once, then streamlining the handling of scrap should be considered to improve the overall efficiency of the facility.
Q: How does a scrap chopper work?
Just put the scrap strapping into the infeed funnel. The feedworks will grab the material and pull it into the rotating knife path. The feedworks will continue to pull the scrap in until it is consumed, or until the operator releases the feedworks via the release lever. It’s as simple as feed-and-forget!
