Precious Plastic Åland
Finally got my thumb out.. And made a page on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/preciousplasticaland/ it is in Swedish and English.
Our first project is to build a shredder and a extruder to recycle 3D-prints for Optinova. (The Optinova Group is one of the leading global suppliers of advanced tubing solutions for the global medical device industry)
Will share the development and solutions here on the forum and on our FB page.
Yeah, i got a used 2.2 kW motor and a 3 kW motor, got some reducers that hopefully can be fitted together with the motors. But for the shredder that I am building for Optinova I Think I will use a new motor with reducer 🙂
Alright, I have not had so much time working with the shredder, but yesterday I did some hours of work.
The guys at the workshop at my work did a great job with the axle/shaft. If you are going to have someone else make your axle/shaft for you, I recommend you also bring one of the bearings with you, so you get a perfect fit.
The assembly with almost without problems, only one of the countersunk holes in the sideplate for the bearing was not deep enough, also I needed to use some washers/spacers between the side plate and the bearings.
I am going to change some of the screws to shorter ones (not needed but it will look nicer).
