Technical Novelties “Made in Austria”

“Green Boost your business” is the motto at IFAT, under which the Austrian-based company Komptech is presenting its communication technology “Connect!”, along with all-new and updated machines for shredding, screening and turning.

Komptech’s key message at this year’s IFAT is “even more customer benefit”. The Austrian technology provider is intent on continuing to help its customers doing sustained good business and on making its own contribution to an even more effective environmental technology. The company’s lineup at this event is extensive, from the VDMA (German Machinery and Plant Manufacturing Association) Practice Days “Biomass” and (for the first time) “Minerals” to a booth full of new and interesting things. “This large fair footprint also represents the start of a new market offensive”, the company emphasizes. “Komptech reserved additional outdoor space just in time, where it will present a new machine.”

Communication that connects

Since January 2018 Komptech’s “Connect!” monitoring and communication technology has greatly enhanced the availability and efficiency of its machines, the company underlines. Based on a further development of its condition monitoring system, “Connect!” is designed specifically for Komptech machines and the conditions they are used in. “With continuous monitoring machines can always be maintained based on their condition. Contingency costs can be reduced to a minimum, and partial real-time sensor data analysis provides for a reliable and fast-reacting information system.”

Staying with the program

According to Komptech, the provider has always placed a priority on continuous development of its technology to meet customer needs. The new Topturn X5000 expands its line-up of triangular windrow turners. This “five meter machine” comes in two power versions. Its one-piece plough blades simplify switching from work to transport position. The drum wear parts can swing through 180 degrees, giving longer use and thereby lower operating costs. As reported, the completely redesigned Axtor 4510 shredder weighs now only 19 tons (with all options) and is thus much easier to transport. Its two-axle configuration also gives it great manoeuvrability. The intake and shredder rotor have been repositioned for a more compact yet just as capable machine. Komptech has also updated its screening machine park. Based on the Nemus 2700, the brand-new Nemus 3000 is a drum screener “that sets new standards in maintenance and service-friendliness”, the provider is convinced. Longer discharge belts and the ability to use screen drums from competitor machines are further benefits of this piece of equipment.The efficient shredding of a very wide range of materials like household and commercial waste, green cuttings and waste wood with just a single machine was the goal behind the development of the new Terminators Type V. V stands for versatility; one example is the optional retrofit of a post-shredding unit under the drum, adding greatly to the range of grain sizes. V is exactly what many operators need, Komptech says.

The same goes for the new Metalfex non-ferrous metal separator, which sorts non-ferrous metals out of all kinds of waste streams. “Three different mobility configurations make it very flexible”, the company stresses. “And not only does it remove valuable non-ferrous metals for recycling, it can also take an FE separator to do even more. The applications range from pre-shredded wood and bulky waste to shredded green cuttings. “
