Scrap Choppers

Machine Concepts has extensive experience rebuilding all types of scrap choppers. When required, we can offer engineered solutions to upgrade or retrofit existing machines. Our basic rebuild scope of work includes the following:

  • On site baseline inspection
  • Complete inspection of equipment consisting of endplay checks, breakaway torques, knife heights and gaps, and arbor lift is done before complete teardown. (All reports given to customer for their records)
  • Pre-Rebuild inspection reports including arbor measurements and run-outs, housing bore measurements, and bore alignments according to print specs
  • Equipment is refurbished and repaired per customers instructions
  • Reassemble Choppers with new bearings and seals
  • Set-up chopper knives with proper height and gaps to put directly back in line
  • Test run chopper heads for a lengthy period of time before shipment (This assures equipment to run correctly when put back into line)
  • Final inspection reports and run-in data provided to customer
