What is an Industrial Plastic Shredder

By definition, a plastic shredder (aka plastic shredding machine) is a piece of machine used to break down big plastic into smaller pieces. Usually, the machine consists of one rotating knife with low rotating speed (45 RPM) but high torque, unlike plastic granulators that are the high speed at 500 RPM.
