80 years ago, in 1942, Harry Johansson founded Rapid Granulator in his hometown of Bredaryd, Sweden. He was an entrepreneur and visionary who was guided by strong values. Rapid’s products should make a difference for everyone who used them, and for the communities in which they operated.
The concept of sustainable development may not have had the same impact then as now, but for Rapid’s founders it was a matter of course. The overall mentality in Swedish society at the time was to repair things that were broken instead of buying new, and to reuse items and equipment. Harry and his contemporary entrepreneurs were genuinely environmentally friendly, pioneers in sustainability work.
Today, we are a world-leading company in producing equipment for plastic recycling, with operations and agencies located in Malaysai, on all continents. But our head office, production and development remain in Bredaryd, where we proudly have our roots.
Rapid OneCUT PRO is an efficient slow-speed granulator, suitable for crushing of smaller products, sprues, etc. Comes with several innovative features.
These are just some of the benefits of OneCUT PRO. Add smart metal detection, low noise levels and it becomes the obvious standard for slow-speed granulators.
All models in the Rapid 300 series can be used either as a central granulator or as inline granulator for all types of materials. Typical applications include sprues, molded items, profiles, smaller pipes, sheets, etc.
Rapid GT1100 is optimized for cost-effective in-line crusher of skeletal waste.
All manufacturing waste, when properly handled, can be transformed back to usable source material in your process, often without manual intervention. Our granulator and shredder machines range in capacity from a few kilos to several tonnes of ground plastic per hour; materials that can be recycled straight into your manufacturing process.
No matter how efficient a granulator is, there will always be a small amount of dust and fines – increasing when knives start to wear out. With an efficient and adapted dust separation system, these problems can be avoided. Rapid offers complete systems for all dust separation needs.
Edge-trims are a common waste in sheet extrusion operations. The most common method for dealing with waste edge trimming is to use two guillotine blades, one for each edge trim. It is integrated into the extrusion process and cuts the edge trims continuously, with the chopped bits falling onto a conveyor belt and being delivered to a granulator.
With metal detection before the granulator, extensive and costly damage to the granulator is avoided.
With higher sensitivity these metal detectors can detect and magnetized all types of metals as well other electrically conductive materials. The most common installation is to have the detector installed on a conveyor belt.
