Model 450 HT

Model 450 HT


Sweed's High Torque chopper line is designer to work in slitter line applications where production line speeds are slower than average.

Add To Cart

Sweed's standard choppers utilize inertia of the flywheel to achieve scrap chopping action. The HT line is unique in that it's designed to cut material at zero flywheel speed using the torque from the motor rather than the mass and inertia from a flywheel spinning at high speeds. Custom stands and additional safety upgrades are also available.
