we almost finished the first PP machine, shredder, in Greece.
We are using a single phase 3HP motor with a 50:1 reducer.
The problem is that when we put Cola bottles who tend to be thicker on top they stuck and need to stop the motor.
The solution we think is to add a control unit to reverse the motor’s direction hence to release the stuck plastic and start again.
Has any of you have any schematics/proposals on how to do it? We already think that in the next one we go with VFD and three phase but for now we need to deliver this ASAP….
Thnx a lot in advance for your help.
