Different plastic shredders have different prices,why
The plastic shredder is an environmental shredder equipment used to shred high-density polyethylene HDPE plastic products and materials, which is conducive to plastic recycling and recycling of plastic particles. The price of plastic shredders is not arbitrarily formulated, but is determined by a combination of factors;production costs are the primary consideration, including raw material inputs, R&D and manufacturing costs.
We know that the main costs of making shredder equipment are blades, reducers, machining and cabinets. Generally speaking, as long as the latter two are the same type of equipment, the cost is roughly the same. The price difference is so huge between shredder equipment , and there are some reasons why the price of different shredders is more than doubled.In fact,they are mainly on the blades and reducers.
The blades of different price points are different in material, and the effect is different. With a blade of ordinary material, it just takes about one month, the blade will be worn out and replaced.Well, the blade made of high-quality steel is usually used range from 5 to 8 months. The price difference is only 1-3 times, but the effect and life can reach 5-8 times.
In addition to the reducer, the shredder can shred a variety of hard or thick materials, mainly because of its strong bite force, which requires extremely powerful torque. The motor speed is constant and the torque is constant, so it is necessary to reduce the torque of the shredder by the reducer. The use of a general reducer may be low in price, but it is difficult for a conventional reducer to completely convert the power of a large-sized motor and increase its torque. Once it encounters a high-hardness material or is in a high-strength machining state, it is very prone to insufficient power, grinding teeth and teeth.
We use the hardened reducer with better effect ,because the same type, the hardened reducer has better power conversion performance, can match larger power motors, and uses high strength low carbon alloy for its gears. The steel is formed by carburizing and quenching, and the hardness of the tooth surface is high. Even if a large piece of hard material enters the machine, it will not cause damage to the reducer. At the same time, however, the price of the hardened gear reducer is higher than that of the conventional reducer.
In combination, although it is the same type of shredder, it is normal to have a huge price difference because of blades of different materials and reducers of different types .
