Piovan says that its N35-60 granulator features a 90° adjustable hopper for four loading positions – ensuring that, if fed by conveyor belt, the direction of the belt can always suit the granulator hopper inlet. This means that maintenance is simplified and less operating space is required.

Fast access to the machine is another important factor, given that cleaning may be needed on a daily basis. This feature is a response to specific requests by numerous users, who need to insert the granulators at the end of production lines where space is often limited. N35-60 is part of a family of three granulators designed specifically to process large pieces that can be difficult to cut.

Piovan says that all its new machines are fitted with its unique tangential cutting system. Rotary blades are inclined with respect to the fixed blades and positioned as close as possible to the geometric tangent of the cutting circle. In this way, high production capacities are achieved using smaller motors, with the additional benefit of minimising dust production and heat generation.
