Schuko Unternehmensprojekte


Diese Weiterbildung soll die Führungskräfte der Schuko GmbH qualifizieren, ein zukunftsorientiertes Führungsverständnis herzuleiten und umzusetzen.

Einführung Lean Management

Um unsere Geschäftsprozesse und vor allem unsere Auftragsprozesse weiter zu digitalisieren, führen wir das "Lean Management" ein.
Schuko Bad Laer betrifft das in den Bereichen "Lean Produktion" und "Lean Administration". Dieses Projekt wird mit Mitteln des Europäischen Fonds für regionale Entwicklung gefördert.

Weiterbildung Lean Production

Der Standort Schuko Trebbin erhält eine Weiterbildung zum Thema "Lean Production". Diese Maßnahme wird durch das Ministerium für Wirtschaft, Arbeit und Energie aus Mitteln des Europäischen Sozialfonds und des Landes Brandenburg gefördert. Der Europäische Sozialfonds (ESF) ist Europas wichtigstes Instrument zur Förderung der Beschäftigung. Er fördert die Chancengleichheit auf dem Arbeitsmarkt, unterstützt die Menschen beim Zugang zu besseren Arbeitsplätzen und bei der beruflichen Bildung und Qualifizierung.

on this product?


If you need to cut up your waste wood into wood chips, then our single-shaft shredder is right for you. With a powerful cutting shaft each of our three sizes effortlessly cuts up all waste wood, even entire pallets.

The inclined feed-in tray presses the input material against the rotating cutting rotor. A screen underneath with a mesh size of 14–30 mm retains large pieces in the hopper for further comminution. The differently sized screens can easily be changed according to the further processing requirements for the shredded product.

The cut-up wood can, for example, be used for in-house heating or compacted in a briquetting press as required. Residual metal parts such as nails are segregated via an in-line magnetic separator.

An extraction system or an inclined screw discharge system for direct conveyance, e.g., to a chip bin can be installed for automatic disposal of the shredded product.

A money-saving high-efficiency motor (IE3) is used for the gear drive. Owing to the direct drive, our shredders output approximately 10% more power at the shaft than belt-driven models and thus operate much more effectively. To save additional power all Schuko shredders shut down automatically when idle.

Schuko shredders are distinguished by their long life and trouble-free operation. They feature solid constructions with low-wear all-steel cutting shafts. The material feed-in tray is inclined for a higher material throughput. This causes the input material to be pressed against the cutting shaft with a higher force. Double-sided break-proof blades and easy-to-reach lubrication points minimise follow-up costs and maintenance requirements.

Schuko attaches great importance to system safety according to applicable standards. All shredders bear the CE mark.

Other advantages

Robust, strong, long-lived and economical

  • Solid 15mm flat steel construction for a long service life.
  • The ZM 1000-K size has additional reinforcements on the motor mount and torque arm.
  • Low-wear pusher guide with highly wear-resistant polyamide (PA6).
  • High material throughput through inclined construction causing the input material to be pressed effectively against the solid all-steel cutting shaft.
  • Schuko blades with clearance and cutting angles ensuring optimal cutting results. They generate savings of up to 2 kW in motor power, can be turned for dual use and can be individually replaced at any time.
  • Side rakers prevent material wrapping around the end of the rotor shaft.
  • Counter-blades that can be turned for dual use.
  • Individually adjustable chip sizes through exchangeable screens with different mesh sizes.
  • Direct-drive motor for higher shaft output, low maintenance and no belt retightening.
  • With high-speed heavy-duty gearbox to drive the rotor shaft. Belt slip is eliminated and wear is minimised.
  • Smooth-running drive unit (motor and gearbox) for a long service life.
  • Motor-protecting and disturbance-free shredding thanks to electronic monitoring of power consumption and reversal of direction of rotor shaft rotation in overload situation.
  • Maintenance-friendly hydraulic unit with oil level indicator.
  • Space-saving switchgear cabinet, suitable for external wall mounting, with user-friendly PLC for continuous adjustment of machine running time, operating hours indication, text display in fault situations and activation of the energy-saving idle shutdown mode.

Installation & delivery

Schuko shredders are fully preassembled for delivery. The machine can be put into operation immediately following electric hook-up by an electrician and implementation of a suitable disposal solution for the shredded product.
