Top and bottom knives, as well as choppers and counterknives for textile recycling

Peak performance including: Our knives for textile recycling

Uncompromisingly efficient

Around 90% of Germans donate  old clothes  to collections on occasionand approximately 1.6 million tonnes are collected each year in this way. Items of clothing that are still wearableare reused as secondhand items, for example. Old textiles that can no longer be used ondue to their quality, are shredded in recycling units into versatile secondary raw materials (torn fibre mixtures). Inter alia, the recycled products are used in the automobile industry. In this industry, we supply knives for tearing units and chopping machines; these allow long working lives and are proven by their low wear rate.

Perfect team: Our knives and your machine

 Inter alia, we produce knives for machines from Pierret and Dell’Orco.
