It comes to late for an Olympic gold-medal, but it stands for bomatic first class performance: In Sheffield, located in beautiful Yorkshire, a new granulator Unicrex U1700 is being currently installed. Its mission: Granulating of turnings and millings to a size of 20mm. This task demands specialised requirements from the device that is equipped with 48 rotor blades and 4 stator blades. All blades can be used in four different ways. A high-capacity 160 kW-motor, the hydraulically opening cutting unit with the quick blade and screen change system as well as the innovative bomatic-maintenance drive for frictionless maintenance provide for the special requirements and for unfailing record-breaking results.
