Once the cutting blade reaches the reel it simply cuts the paper, which falls away as each layer is penetrated by the blade. The blade position can be controlled to cut the reel as deep as you require – all the way down past the core if required. If the cores are steel, aluminium or any material that means the core is to be returned and re-used to the material supplier, the operator will carefully control the blade cut, so the integrity of the re-usable core is always maintained, ready to be returned to the supplier at a later date. Once the reels have been adequately cut, the conveyor is moved forward and the material falls onto the ground alongside our fully automatic baler for final recycling. We even recycle the waste cardboard cores after we have removed the material from them, using our Klass Jaguar core shredder – click here for more information on out cardboard core shredding and recycling service!
