MAIER Knife Ring Flaker  -      MRZ / MRZ HS


  • Particle boards
  • Pellets and briquettes


The MAIER Knife Ring Flaker MRZ is a high-performance machine for the production of high-quality flakes. The MRZ HS High Speed enables the production of fine-cut flakes from micro-chips and lightweight materials on the dry or wet side.

After passing the vibration conveyor, the permanent magnet drum and the Heavy Particle Separator, the chips are distributed in three dimensions (3D) across all areas of the flaking chamber by the unique FlowOptimizer. Finally, the fast-rotating rotor guides the chips to the knives of the static knife ring where the chips are cut into flat, uniform high-quality flakes.

Customer benefits
