Herbold SML series general purpose granulators are robust and low-noise machines for general purpose applications. Compact, transportable, easy to clean. Perfect design for frequent color and material changes.

SML Series Granulators are suitable for processing all light, bulky or voluminous plastics scraps with thin or medium walls including; films, cans, barrels, car bumpers, thin-walled tubes,
profiles, injection molding rejects, skeletal waste, thermoforming waste, foams and more.

Easy access to the cutting chamber
The centrally hinged, two-piece housing is divided at an inclined angle and thus allows an optimum access to the cutting chamber. Cleaning and maintenance times are reduced to a minimum.

Double cross cutting action
The rotor and bed knives are mounted at the same but opposite angle and ensure a steady cutting gap across the full length of the knife. This cutting geometry lowers noise levels and reduces power requirements. The risk of jamming is also reduced and the quality of the regrind is improved due to fewer fines.

SML Granulators can also be used effectively as Wet Grinders
Due to the outboard bearings, the two-part housing and a modified discharge trough SMLSeries Granulators can be optimally used as a wet grinder. In one working cycle, the contaminated plastic waste is ground and washed by adding water during the size reduction process. The results are excellent.
