Komptech Lacero 8010: Development and shredding with high performance

The Lacero high-performance shredder is one of Komptech’s latest innovations. Thanks to close cooperation with a Dutch partner PON Equipment BV and customer Den Ouden, the machine has been developed for shredding all types of green waste and wood.

Very important was the test phase and continuous improvement of the product and with the large customer Den Ouden from the Netherlands, with strong support from the local partner PON Equipment BV. In order to test the prototype, a customer with extremely large quantities to be processed and a particularly high level of experience was targeted and found in Den Ouden. This resulted in intensive cooperation and a test phase of around 2000 operating hours of the Lacero prototype.

Maximum throughput capacity and robust design – these are the main features of the new Lacero 8010. The heart of the machine is the massive shredder rotor in combination with the 800 PS CAT® C18 engine of the latest exhaust gas Stage 5, enabling almost any type of green waste and wood to be shredded in a highly efficient manner.

Throughput values of 400 cubic meters per hour in the applications “waste wood treated” and green waste, while at the same time producing a very homogeneous material quality P63 F10 (ÖNORM EN ISO 17225-1), speak for themselves. The huge feed area with active intake in the form of a steel link belt transports the material to the large intake opening of 760 x 1,520 millimetres. The rotor design has 16 armoured wear plates and allows use on both sides, thus doubling the service life. The Lacero 8010 is driven by a belt drive, which ensures maximum efficiency.

Komptech Lacero Shredder 2aA two-part screen basket system allows the machine to be ideally matched to the desired material quality. The screen basket carrier also has a safety system that is triggered on contact with a massive interfering material, thus protecting the machine from further damage.

Material discharge is provided by the powerful discharge system with a discharge height of almost five meters. The machine is equipped with Komptech’s Connect! condition monitoring system as standard. It can be expanded to include fully integrated volume throughput measurement – so you can always keep an eye on your machine’s performance data.
