Appleton Mfg. Division, the leader in core cutting and handling equipment, expands its Safe-Slab Core Recycler product line to include Light and Heavy-Duty models.
Unique to the market, the Safe-Slab Core Recycler makes it safer and easier to remove excess materials from a core without using blades. This maximizes the number of cores that can be reused, while minimizing material cost and waste. With the addition of the Light and Heavy-Duty models, the Safe-Slab Core Recycler can safely manage roll weights between 10 and 1,000 pounds and roll lengths up to 96 inches. Appleton Mfg. Division will also design custom Safe-Slab Core Recyclers to meet customer-specific requirements.
Unlike other systems that utilize moving blades to cut away remaining material, or rely on workers to cut away excess materials with utility knives, the Safe-Slab Core Recycler simply unwinds remaining material onto a coreless shaft, separating a perfectly good core from the roll without risk to the workers or damage to the core.
In addition to improving worker safety, the Safe-Slab Core Recycler also saves money and promotes green operations. It does this by maximizing the number of cores that can be repurposed, reducing the time needed to strip material from a core, and making it easier to separate materials for recycling, thereby maximizing recycling stream revenue.
The Safe-Slab Core Recycler makes it safer and easier to separate materials from a core,” said Mike Geer, Product Manager at Appleton Mfg. Division. “This not only improves plant operations, reduces waste, saves on material expense, and provides a safer work environment, but it also helps companies meet their green initiatives.”
