At the beginning of next year, ARJES GmbH will present its strategic reorientation and divide its double-shaft shredders into three basic product lines:
IMPAKTOR – ARJES compact class
EKOMAXX – ARJES intermediate class
TITAN – ARJES heavy-duty class
Product range IMPAKTOR
The mobile IMPAKTOR 250 evo double-shaft shredder has gained international recognition since its launch and is suitable for small to medium-sized companies within the demolition and processing industry. This flexible and robust shredder features a unique combination of track system and hook lift version, a revolutionary shaft quick-change system, an innovative SCU control and a shaft design that extends the machine‘s range of applications many times over. In addition to numerous applications for construction and demolition waste, the mobile as well as stationary shredders of the ARJES compact class are also suitable for processing railway sleepers, rootstocks, old and trunk wood, tyres, household and commercial waste and many other applications.
Product range EKOMAXX
The new EKOMAXX product line will replace the VZ 750 D/DK and VZ 850 D/DK series pre-shredders in the first half of 2021. The main reasons for this decision were technological advances that could not be further implemented in the design of these machines, as they would be too complex or too expensive. In the ARJES intermediate class, the concept of economic sustainability is the main focus in the development. The goal of ARJES is clearly defined: „To achieve an ideal cost-efficiency ratio for the maximum benefit of our customers and users“. Under the name EKOMAXX 800, the first machine in this product line will be equipped with all the advantages that are already standard with the IMPAKTOR and TITAN.
The key differences that make the EKOMAXX 800 a more efficient and economical machine than its predecessor VZ 850 D/DK are evident:
Smaller engine with emission stage V
Optimised and more powerful hydraulic system
Reduced total weight
Lower acquisition costs
Complete equipment as standard
„Our aim is to develop a shredder which is in the price range of a VZ 750 D/DK, but has the performance of a VZ 850 D/DK. The machine is currently still in the final phase of development and is undergoing the appropriate test runs. However, in the first half of 2021 the newly developed EKOMAXX 800 double-shaft shredder will be available to all users, with the focus on optimum efficiency, and will conquer the recycling market with its innovations,“ promised Managing Director Thomas Hayn and Technical Director Norbert Hammel.
Product range TITAN
With the importance of renewable energy sources, the use of electric shredders is also becoming more and more popular. For all customers with special requirements regarding exhaust and noise emissions, a stationary electric version is the right solution. The ARJES E-PU machines are particularly energy-saving and efficient for the user, as they can be used for shredding the most difficult materials with considerably less maintenance. Within the IMPAKTOR and TITAN lines, these are already standard, but an electric power unit version is also already in the planning stage for the EKOMAXX line.
From 2021 onwards, all ARJES machines will basically only be equipped with an asynchronous drive and intelligent control system for the shredding shafts, which promise user-friendly and uncomplicated operations by remote control.
