Andritz to supply a Universal Shredder FRP to Setra Group in Sweden
Austria-headed international technology group Andritz AG has announced that it has received an order from the Setra Group to supply a Universal Shredder FRP for its cross-laminated timber (CLT) production line in Långshyttan, Sweden.
One of Sweden’s largest wood product companies, Setra Group operates eight sawmills and three processing facilities to produce wood for building construction, furniture and interior decoration industries in the global market.
According to Andritz, the new FRP shredder, type 2000P, will be used to shred the rejects from the production process and is capable of processing up to four tonnes of wood rejects per hour. A special cutting technology is required to handle this very solid and hard laminated wood.
The Universal Shredder FRP includes a so-called CoverCross system with overlapping knives, making the machine the perfect choice to master this challenge, and guarantees uniform breakdown of the input material. In addition, the rotor rotates continuously to ensure high throughput and maximum efficiency. The scope of delivery also includes the input hopper.
