Lindner’s DEX Drive for Twin-Shaft Shredders Wins the Global CemFuels Award for Innovation of the Year

Lindner is setting new standards in efficiency with their asynchronous twin-shaft shredders’ innovative and purely electromechanical drive with smart DEX (Dynamic Energy Exchange) energy management system. This novelty won the Global CemFuels Award in the category ‘Alternative Fuels Innovation of the Year’ at the 14th Global CemFuels Conference and Exhibition in Paphos, Cyprus.

Spittal an der Drau/Austria & Paphos/Cyprus, February 2020. The specialist for shredding technology and waste processing solutions received the cement and lime industry’s coveted award for the sixth time in February 2020. This ingeniously engineered, new drive – used for the first time in Lindner’s Atlas 5500 AS shredder – beat stiff competition. The purely electromechanical drive's secret weapon lies in its intelligent DEX energy management system. This system recovers the valuable kinetic energy generated by one of the shafts while braking and supplies it to the second shaft – a much more efficient process than losing it as heat. Thanks to this innovative technology, the shredder always runs at the optimum operating point and ensures that the direction of the shafts changes up to three times faster than with conventional drives. This is particularly necessary when shredding tough or wet and heavy materials. The drive unit consumes 40% less energy, which makes the shredder exceptionally efficient. Sporting no hydraulic components, maintenance is reduced to a bare minimum.

Thanks to the smart DEX energy management system, the Atlas 5500 AS consumes up to 40% less than comparable primary shredders. While one shaft is braking, the energy generated is made available to the second shaft.

The Global CemFuels Conference and Exhibition has established itself as the world's largest and most important exhibition focusing on alternative fuels, especially for the cement and lime industries. Last year, nearly 200 experts from over 30 countries attended the conference, and in 2020, the conference was also met with great international acclaim.

This award shows that we have once again taken an important step forward, true to our motto ‘Make the Most of Waste’’, said the Area Sales Manager Marco Egger and Sales Manager Fritz Driessler, who accepted the award personally in Cyprus.
