Key Features

Lindner Advantages

Lindner's Dex - Dynamic Energy Exchange System

For Maximum Efficiency

Maximum efficiency is achieved by actively using braking energy when reversing one of the shafts. Top productivity is ensured with an instant, power electronics-con-trolled reversal of the shaft running direction.   

  • Innovative, load-dependent energy management 
  • Highest energy efficiency in operation 
  • Maximum agility while changing the running direction, up to 3 times faster

Drive Unit With Convenience & Maintenance Functions (Optional)


  • Ensures optimum power transmission at all times
  • Belt exchange using a hydraulic tensioning device
  • Self and preventive monitoring


  • Protects the drive unit from dirt
  • Significantly reduced maintenance activities
  • With radial fan and self-cleaning function

Asynchronous Twin-Shaft Cutting System

The cutting system of the Atlas AS consists of two asynchronously running, fully welded rotors and a solid scraper unit. The asynchronous ripping (ripping apart, ripping up) at low speeds with high torque combined with the dynamic energy recovery enables:

  • Aggressive material intake
  • Continuous volume flow
  • Highest productivity
  • Ideal output material for sorting
