Who is Rapid?


Rapid Granulator AB was founded in 1942 in Bredaryd, Sweden. Local producers of plastic mouldings asked the company to develop a granulator, which it did in close cooperation with the client. It was the beginning of a successful business development in the field of volume reduction of plastics. Today, the company is completely focused on manufacturing a comprehensive range of granulators and cutting mills for in-house recycling. By designing and manufacturing high-performance granulators for direct in-house recycling of plastic waste, the manufacturer increases the profitability of plastics processing companies. The company has built a reputation for producing cutting mills that meet all the needs of the plastics industry. This has made the company the world's largest exporter of plastic shredding equipment. This is also reflected in the fact that more than 100,000 Rapid cutting mills have been delivered to customers worldwide.

 

The Rapid Open-Hearted Concept

With the development of the Open-Hearted cutting mill, Rapid set a new standard in granulation technology. The ability to completely open the housing of the machine provides unsurpassed ease of access to the core parts of it.

The advantages:   

   full control during cleaning for a "visibly clean" inspection
·           quick and easy access for service and maintenance, which e.g. considerably speeds up knife changes

All Rapid granulators are characterised by
 
  • a constant cutting circle (CCC)
  • a shear cut that delivers clean, high-quality ground material
  • low power consumption
 

 

Rapid OneCUT PRO

  • With the EnergySMART, users save up to 80 percent on energy costs
  • Fast cleaning due to the Open-Hearted design - you open the entire machine in less than 30 seconds
  • Complete accessibility to rotor and knives thanks to Rapid QRR
  • Top-quality regrind, independent of material, thanks to Rapid FlexiSPEED - the cutting speed is adapted to the material properties
  • Anti-blocking system as standard
  • Meets current and future safety requirements


The OneCUT PRO is a highly efficient, energy-saving low-speed grinder that can produce top-quality ground material. It benefits from unique Rapid innovations such as FlexiSPEED technology and the Open-Hearted design, which makes cleaning and maintenance much easier.

All plastics have different properties. So why use the same speed to cut them up? With OneCUT PRO, customers can use FlexiSPEED to adjust the rotor speed at any time. This way they can be sure to use the right setting to achieve the optimum output and granule quality as well as the lowest noise level - and through Rapid EnergySMART, the lowest possible energy consumption at the same time.
 

 

Rapid Granulator 150 Series

  • Increased regrind quality and accessibility
  • DeltaTech models
  • PowerTech models
  • Cassette knife system

The 150 Series is primarily designed to be integrated into the injection moulding process as an auxiliary mill. Direct in-line recycling of plastic scrap offers several advantages. These include cost and material savings, improved material flow management and environmentally friendly production.

However customers' injection moulding machines are configured: The company has the right design as a co- or sub-mill for production!


 

Rapid Granulator 200 Series

  • Side-mounted granulator
  • Low energy consumption
  • High quality regrind
  • Compact and versatile
  • Increased throughput capacity

The 200 Series granulators are ideal for in-line recycling of rejects and production-related plastic residues from injection moulding and blow moulding. A standard model meets exact capacity requirements up to 200kg/h. The large number of standard alternatives, such as different grinding chamber widths, rotor configuration, rotor speed, unloading system, etc., allows customers to choose the granulator best suited to their production.


 

Rapid Granulator 300 Series

  • Open-Hearted Concept !
  • Extremely short set-up times
  • Maximum availability
  • Reliable visual inspection
  • No compromises

The great advantage of the Open-Hearted design concept is the direct and easy access to the inside of the machine and the resulting extremely short cleaning and maintenance times. This in turn speeds up production changes and increases availability. The unobstructed view of elementary machine components also facilitates reliable visual inspections for cleanliness to rule out contamination during colour and material changes.

The Open-Hearted machines are ideal as high-performance central or auxiliary mills for all types of injection moulding residues, such as sprues, rejects and manifold spiders, but also for blow moulding residues and extrusion residues, including pipes, profiles, sheets and films.
 

 

Rapid Granulator LBB 300 Series

  • High-quality regrind
  • Low height, only 900 mm
  • Three widths 900 mm, 1200 mm, 1500 mm
  • Easy service and maintenance due to split screen boxes and screens
  • Powerful operation with motors up to 30 kW
  • Electric siphon opening for easy access to the inside of the mill
  • Throughput capacity up to 1200 kg/h

The new LBB Series 300 is an extremely low profile granulator series offered in three widths 900 mm, 1200 mm and 1500 mm. Typical applications are production residues from thermoforming lines for plastic packaging. In addition to die-cutting scrap of all kinds, it also processes complete films into high-quality regrind. The fully integrated reel infeed, which is up to 1,500 mm wide, draws the film material directly from the thermoforming machine in continuous operation. The infeed is automatically synchronised with the speed of the thermoforming machine.

Rapid RAPTOR shredders

  • Recycle all plastics!
  • Open-heart technology

  • New rotor design - impact protection
  • QuadCUT™ - Patented unique blade design.
  • Individually adjustable, tiltable hopper

RAPTOR shredders are unique in many ways. They are designed to handle all types of plastics, whether large 1,200 litre IBC containers or heavy lumps, all are efficiently recycled. The new patented Rapid QuadCUT™ blade design offers four true cutting edges per blade in one solid piece, making the blades the hardest available on the market. The knives are clamped in a tremendously strong design, including a shock absorber that protects the rotor from being destroyed in the event of a sudden impact from metal accidentally entering the cutter housing, etc.

The shredders are available in two widths, 800 and 1350 mm. The standard version is equipped with FlexiPUSH (pneumatic pusher). For voluminous, light goods, a TopPUSH (pneumatic) can be added. If additional power is required, the PowerPUSH version (hydraulic pusher) is recommended.



 

Rapid ThermoPRO


Simplicity – ThermoPRO is coming with the unique “Open-Hearted” design as standard that drastically simplifies cleaning, service and preventive maintenance. Direct access to the heart of the machine in less than a minute!

Extra heavy duty – The new heavy duty roller feed is designed to compress and feed cups up to 200 mm height, eliminating all manual handling at e.g. startups. – Grind all material and feed it back to the production process again without risk of contamination.

We know that the difference between profit loss in the thermoforming industry will often come down to how efficiently you can recycle. All granulators can handle in-line skeleton waste, but with ThermoPRO you can get more from your raw materials whilst doing less manual work.  There’s no need to separately handle start-up waste, just run everything directly into the granulator, and benefit from increasing your profit margins.
