Machines built in Hanoi, Vietnam

Hi everyone,

We have just finished building the shredder and compressor in Hanoi, Vietnam. The shredder was built with the help of some professors from a local vocational college, and the compressor was built by handymen.

Our machines have some new features. The blades in the shredder can rotate in the opposite way in case the plastics got stuck in the blades; the compressor has a small fan behind the oven to help cool down products faster.

One thing to note is that the motor we used for the shredder is 1500W. We found out that this is kind of weak. When we shredded PET bottles, the blades got stuck and the machine stopped multiple times.

We are now in the process of collecting more plastics and test-running the compressor.

Some photos of our project can be found below (Sorry I don’t know why some pictures turned horizontal when posted, they were vertical on my computer). In these photos: the shredder, the compressor, and the fan at the back of the oven.

Thanks for sharing your pictures here @qnguyen198, don’t know why pictures are turned landscape either, need to fix that bug 🙁  Compression looks weirdly interesting 😀 Keep up the good work and make sure to post a picture every now and then

Looking forward to see some products!

So nice machines you have made. We are in the progress of also making a compressor. So I have some questions for you.

What kind of parts have you made with the compressor? We are mostly collecting pet and I just wonder if it is a good plastic for compressing. If it gets to week when having thickness of 3-4 mm.
I like you Facebook page by the way.
