As a specialist in all things CNC, CNC World provides CNC routers, plasmas, water-jet cutters, and lasers.
FERCELL’s brief was to provide a comprehensive recycling and ventilation system (dust and fume), for the router, plasma, and laser cutters.
Creating Value from your Waste.
FERCELL operates two divisions, one specializing in ventilation systems, and the other recycling solutions. The two often go hand in hand, as is the case with CNC World, where FERCELL was able to offer a complete suite of products to achieve circular manufacturing, including waste wood shredding, a briquette press, and biomass heater.
Key components for the solution consisted of a WEIMA Ultra 60 Shredder, WEIMA C140 Briquette Press and CS-200 Woodburning Space Heater.
The use of CNC machinery will often result in wood waste from offcuts. Over time this can add up and cause excess wood waste. Disposal of wood can become costly, whilst there is an initial investment cost to briquette production it delivers a number of long-term benefits. Any scrap wood can be broken down, freeing up valuable space and saving you on previous disposal costs of waste wood. You have the option to use the briquettes to reduce your heating costs or they can be sold on to create extra revenue.
Breaking it down
The WEIMA Ultra 60 Single Shaft Shredder is a great investment, delivering flexibility, durability, and reliability. Featuring the segmented floor, gearbox safety package, WEIMA WAP gearbox, patented “V” rotor housing double the number of knives of typical market competitors, delivering a 30% increase in throughput volumes, and a more uniform homogenous fraction size.
The Ultra 60, a WEIMA classic, is a popular choice, as it delivers reduced energy consumption and lower operating overheads in comparison to other products in the range. The capabilities of the Ultra 60 don’t just stop at wood, it can also be used to break down cardboard, paper, and plastic.
Once the material has been broken down it can be processed into briquettes. For CNC World the WEIMA C140 briquette press was the best fit, providing a compact, robust solution. Looking for low energy consumption, low maintenance solution the C140 was a perfect fit. The C140 is perfect for small to medium businesses. The briquettes are then burned in the wood burner, creating a source of heating, which in turn will reduce your bills.
