Is Your Shredder Cutting It | CM Industrial Shredder


For more than 35 years, CM Shredders has been the recognized leader of recycling equipment solutions. CM systems process more than half a billion tires each year worldwide and continue to grow.

CM has been pioneering the development of tire recycling systems since 1982. CM was the first company to develop “turnkey” systems specifically designed for the reduction of scrap tires with the intent on creating valuable end products, commonly known today as tire derived materials. Our in depth knowledge of markets for products derived from scrap tires has given us the leading edge in developing tire recycling systems that create value for our customers. Over the years we have worked closely with our customers, leading industry professionals and numerous industry associates to assist in the development of innovative market driven solutions for tire derived materials.

CM recognized the value of the “Holman Patent” a patented shredder knife system that created extremely close knife to knife tolerances. This system allowed processors to create high quality tire chips with very little exposed steel. This patent was purchased and coupled with an innovative, highly efficient, patented screening system, which together created a system that produced clean cut chips of consistent size. This innovative technology was incremental to the advancement of the tire derived fuel and tire derived aggregate markets.

CM Primary Shredders are the workhorse of the industry. They process from off road tires down to passenger tires. Larger off road tires may need to be pre-cut and or debeaded prior to processing.

They process whole tires into rough shreds for disposal. These rough shreds can also be fed to Chipping Shredders to produce specifically sized chips in high production applications for Tire Derived Aggregate (TDA) or Tire Derived Fuel (TDF).

With the addition of a disc screen the Primary Shredder can be used to produce 4 to 6 inch chips ideal for Stage 2 processing in Crumb Rubber applications.

At CM we know it takes more than just building the best equipment. We work one on one with every customer to develop and create solid working solutions that will best serve their volume and markets. As a team, we provide industry education, technical and engineering support, networking avenues and straight up honest answers to all your questions to be sure that the equipment fits the job and supports your business model to achieve the highest production and lowest cost for maximum profits.
