These modularly designed units feature a world-first with their “open-hearted” design. Other notable design features include a unique cutting system, tilt-back hopper and design for integrated granulation.
“The Raptor series is a shredder and granulator hybrid with the shredder’s heavy-duty cutting technology combined with granulator features such as Rapid’s “open hearted” design that makes it super-easy to operate, service and clean”, says Rapid Global Sales and Marketing Director Bengt Rimark. “The Raptor series has been developed with 100% focus on every single detail that is of importance for plastic processors, in order to create simplicity and a minimum cost of ownership. As we develop and manufacture both granulators and shredders, we make sure that the machines are tailored for each other and that we can provide complete recycling systems, direct from Rapid.”
The Rapid “open hearted” design of the Raptor enables quick and direct access to the shredder rotor and cutter chamber, drastically simplifying the cleaning and service process. The front door, hinged on the side, provides unrestricted access to the rotor and the screen, which is mounted in the door. Once the front door is open, the shredder hopper mounted on a rear hinge can be tilted back.
Rapid offers 36 base configurations of the Raptor in order to handle various customer applications. The modular systems feature two diamerters and two widths (800 and 1.350 mm). There are two system designs for pushing material into the rotor and three different cutting systems.
