Model 5703 - Heavy Duty Scrap Chopper

The Model 5703 XHD Scrap Chopper is designed to meet the toughest linear recycling challenges and is especially suited for processing high volumes of ACSR and multi-strand communications cable. Unique front opening feedworks, taper-lock flywheel/shaft assemblies, and high-performance bearings make the 5703 XHD a remarkably tough chopper that is easy to service and maintain even when used in high-production environments. The 5703 XHD is widely recognized in the industry for pre-chopping reeled cable off the spool and can be tuned to virtually any linear scrap chopping application—delivering exceptional power and quick payback.

Magnetic Separation

When coupled with Sweed’s Magnetic Separator, the 5703 XHD becomes an effective ACSR processor. For companies processing 100,000 pounds or more of ACSR annually, this system has very attractive payback potential!

How it Works

Just introduce the material (linear scrap) into the infeed funnel. The feedworks (pinch rolls) will then grab the material and pull it into the rotating knife path. The feedworks will continue to pull at a rate of 0-200 fpm until the material is consumed or the operator releases the feedworks via the release lever.
