LIGNA Vecoplan’s

LIGNA Vecoplan’s biomass chippers are elementary units for processing biomass in heating plants. (Photography credits: Vecoplan AG) Hall 25 | Stand F66 Vecoplan Demonstrates its Versatile Solutions for Shredding, Conveying and Storage Getting the Cycle Moving Processing wood leftovers instead of disposing of them, then using the output thermally or as a raw material is an economically attractive option for sawmills, joineries and furniture manufacturers. Vecoplan supplies the right technology to achieve this - and powerful shredders or chippers are at the heart of it. At Booth F66, Hall 25 at LIGNA in Hanover (27 to 31 May), the leading international specialist company will show visitors how its shredding and processing systems can play a key role in the recycling of wood and waste materials. Products on display will include an efficient single-shaft shredder with an improved cutting unit and a special drive, plus systems for upstream and downstream processes such as conveying and storage. LIGNA is a leading international trade fair and Vecoplan has been an exhibitor there from the outset. Year after year, this trailblazing specialist company has successfully convinced LIGNA visitors with its trend-setting solutions. In 2017, for example, the star of the show was an extremely compact single-shaft shredder which is absolutely ideal for woodworking operations - but its big brother, the VHZ 1600, will be waiting in the wings to steal the limelight this year. The VHZ 1600 is even more powerful and is equipped with an optimised cutting unit. Compact and truly versatile, this machine can process leftover wood, (coarse) chipboard, hard and soft wood waste and even bark. One outstanding feature of single-shaft shredders is that they do not require additional feeding systems for most applications. Plant operators can simply put collected materials into the machine without the need for any metering. The hydraulically-powered ram feeds it all quickly and easily into the shredding mechanism. The VHZ 1600 is equipped with the patented Electronic Slip Control drive (ESC), a technology that is affordable, energy-efficient and extremely economical to run. There’s no need for gearboxes and turbo couplings. The multi-pole, asynchronous drive motor with its powerful frequency converter acts on the rotor shaft via a special belt drive. The ingenious drive-slip control also offers operators the detection of impurities with a fastreacting and effective rotor brake. Together with the proven start-up and reversing controller, 2 to 2.5 times drive torque can be achieved in just a short time with this combination. This is an important requirement for rapid, high-torque startup and stable operation, particularly in the case of shredders. In addition to the many functional highlights, the new wood shredder is noteworthy for its appearance. It adheres to the new Vecoplan industrial design that was introduced with great success last year at IFAT, the world’s leading trade fair for environmental technologies. LIGNA will also see Vecoplan present a robust, reliable and powerful biomass chipper which is designed as a stationary unit with a compact, horizontal feed unit. Thanks to the shredding principle with the clamping plate rotor, the chipper can also handle large quantities of wood chips and highquality chips for the chipboard and paper industry. Vecoplan will also present a cost-effective wood shredder with a U rotor, a machine which is particularly suitable for smaller operations. The machine builder’s extensive product line includes shredding, storage and conveying solutions for processing a wide range of raw materials. The high-quality output can then be recycled. Vecoplan attaches great importance to advance consultation, the design & construction of robust plants, an excellent price-performance ratio and the punctual processing of orders. 24 No. 2 • May 2019

Core Competences Machinery, Equipment, and Process Expertise for Excellent Surfaces Hall 26 | Stand F28 Machinery, equipment, and process expertise for excellent surfaces - these are the core competences of Hymmen. At the world‘s leading trade fair for suppliers to the wood-based materials industry Hymmen will present its product range and latest developments at Stand F28 in Hall 026. The eye-catcher at this year’s 3229-squarefoot stand is set to be the ‘Roberta’ live installation. It shows how Hymmen uses state-of-the-art robotic handling equipment in the process of digital printing on three-dimensional objects. This development project is funded by the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the EU. Examples of products are available to take away. Extensive media support will allow visitors to find out information about the manifold possibilities of Hymmen technologies. Be it in the traditional product areas such as double-belt presses, multi-opening presses, laminating lines, or liquid coating lines, technological innovations everywhere ensure greater efficiency, cost savings, and the expansion of customers’ product ranges. Hymmen is also constantly coming up with new developments in the latest product area of digital printing. In addition, product samples will be shown including premium glossy surfaces (via Calander Coating Inert technology (CCI) or using high-gloss belts in the presses), as well as anti-fingerprint matt surfaces and synchronous structures (digitally via Digital Lacquer Embossing (DLE) and analogously in the press segment). The company has managed to print even particularly difficult decors (e.g., stone patterns with almost single-color surfaces) in excellent quality, in a single pass. For this purpose, Hymmen has developed the ACC (Automatic Color Calibration) software. We will be happy to show you ‘before/after examples’ at the trade fair. Of particular interest to companies with digital printing needs for smaller batches is the single-plank line newly developed by Hymmen, which, in addition to demand-based capacity volumes, also offers the advantage of printing into the joint. In addition to the existing JUPITER digital model series, Hymmen will present the development results of the new digital model series SATURN together with a well-known partner at LIGNA 2019. SATURN is opening up a whole new range of applications for digital printing in the wood-based materials industry. Based on decades of close cooperation with customers and their process requirements, Hymmen succeeds in developing forward-looking, cutting-edge technologies for the requirements of the wood-based materials industry. Wintersteiger Presents a Firework of Innovations at LIGNA Wintersteiger will be displaying no less than 4 new products at LIGNA. As a comprehensive supplier of machines, tools, and application expertise, Wintersteiger will be showcasing its entire range of services on its main booth F60 in hall 27.
