Benchtop Shredding at its Best!

Our school has purchased the tabletop shredder and extruder to use with students in yr1-6 in our science lab. Students have learnt how to collect LDPE & HDPE lids for shredding, melting and moulding. Students have enjoyed making carabiners over the past year and half, and are now anxiously waiting for our mini pot and tumbling tower block to arrive. Pearz gave me all the information I needed to safely operate machines in a classroom environment that I have passed onto my students. PPM are quick at replying to queries and have included our logo onto our moulds. An amazing team doing amazing work!

The heart of our operations!

We have the standup Pro Series Injector and it’s brilliant. This piece of tech has fast become the heart of our operation and we love the simplicity, it’s so easy to use we can teach almost anyone in a few minutes and have them making great quality consistent products with this machine. It’s great. The only down sides are the A-frame structure makes it challenging, as it needs to be moulted on a bench and the material charge capacity is a bit low. We have found ways around these issues in our workshop though and we are very pleased with the consistency this machine produces when using a variety of materials.

The recycling shredder is exactly as expected.
