Plastics Shredders: Solutions for Plastics Scrap
Plastic Grinder, Plastic Recycling Machine, Plastic Granulator
If you’re looking for plastic recycling machines, you’re at the right place. Whether you’re interested in a plastic shredder, plastic grinder, plastic granulator,or plastic scrap shredder, Vecoplan delivers the absolute best plastics size reduction machinery – period. We make that statement based on experience. We back it with proof from our customers.

Vecoplan has combined both shredder and granulator features to create a line of plastics shredders that meets virtually all plastics processing challenges including industrial plastic scrap, with over 300 configurations tailored to excel at specific applications.

Vecoplan has more industrial shredders in more plastics applications than any other manufacturer in the world. That includes companies dedicated solely to recycling plastics, as well as companies that manufacture plastic products and reclaim resin from their own scrap for internal use.

Our plastic shredding machines can be found in the largest plastics recycling plants and in the smallest. Post-consumer plastics recyclers, post-industrial plastics recyclers and companies that recycle both, consistently choose Vecoplan shredders to do it more profitably.

Vecoplan plastic waste shredders play an integral recycling role in how to shred plastic in injection molding, extrusion, blow molding, rotational molding, thermoforming, blown film, cast film, and pelletizing factories. They process rejects, runners, sprues, parts, purgings, pipe, profiles, bags, bottles, bales, buckets, tubs, totes, wovens, nonwovens, film, fiber, carpet, containers, drums, IBCs, lids, - in short, anything made of plastic.

The same holds true for all types of resins. As you read this, Vecoplan plastic shredder machines are shredding ABS, Acetal, Acrylic, HDPE, HMWHDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, Nylon, Nylon 6, Nylon 66, PC, PET, Polyamide, Polyester, PP, PS, PU, PUR, PVC, TPE, TPO, and UHW-PE, as well as composites. If it’s plastic – a Vecoplan shredder can grind it up, and grind it down to the size you need.

Why do both plastics recyclers and plastics processors prefer Vecoplan plastic shredders? Because of their flexibility, versatility, ease of operation, durability, and ease of maintenance.

Flexibility - low bulk density or high bulk density, small parts or big parts, our plastic shredders machine handle them better than any competitor. Versatility – easily changed particle size, through quick & inexpensive screen changes. Ease of operation – dump it in, push a button and walk away, or feed it continuously by conveyor. Durability – everyone claims it, we back it up with example after example of machines that have been in operation for decades. Ease of maintenance – our shredder plastic machines and plastic shredder machine products are designed for quick and easy clean out or replacement of wear parts.
