Industrial Shredder Motors

Specialty Motors for Industrial Shredders

Electric motors used in industrial shredders have to produce incredible amounts of torque to handle the daily requirements related to reducing end-of-life equipment like automobiles to small fragments but still remain relatively energy efficient to be cost-effective.  If your shredder motor is running at less than full capacity, contact Louis Allis.  A Worldwide Electric company, we repair and custom manufacture a wide variety of Above NEMA AC and DC electric motors for large and specialty applications. 

Industrial shredders used to recycle equipment like household appliances, furniture and automobiles depend on exceptionally powerful, highly specialized electric motors to operate successfully. But for a recycling business to operate these machines profitably, the motors must be both highly reliable and energy efficient for maximum uptime, minimum downtime, and cost containment.
