The advanced design of the Model 1018 provides for increased productivity and reduced maintenance costs. Cumberland's 1000 Series machines-Model 1018 and Model 1012 beside-the-press granaulators - are available for immediate delivery.

The 1000 Series from the South Attleboro, MA-based manufacturer consists of 10"x12" and 10"x18" granulators with three-blade, open-scooped rotors that feed materials up to 450 lbs./hr or 550 lbs./hr., respectively. Motor capabilities of the granulators range between 5 HP ad 15 HP, and rotating end discs reduce chamber wear, dust and heat generated by the granulation process.

A newly soundproof and pivoting infeed hopper permits easy feeding for multiple applications with optimum control of flyback. This angled infeed results in smoother ingestion of bulky parts and shapes by the cutting area. The besides-the-press units utilize a cutting chamber design for enhanced processing capability. This design tilts the cutting chamber, resulting in increased application versatility and the ability to handle sprues, runners and IMM rejects parts.

The 1000 Series Granulators include features that reduce maintenance costs. Cleaning and maintenance are simplified with a reversible screen removal. The Knives are manufactured from specially heat-treated steel to ensure durability and long life. The cutting chamber is machined and bolted for easy servicing.

Cumberland Engineering is a leading industry supplier of high-performance, beside-the-press and large capacity granulating equipment. Cumberland also produces central reclaim, granulation systems and pelletizers, and post-consumer bottle and tire recycling systems.
