5 pagesDate: November 7, 2022


Coronavirus 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic affects the plastic waste management all over the world. Plastic waste from medical field such as surgical mask and personal protective equipment is massive. Improper management of the plastic waste that comes from the medical field especially from the covid-19 patient may lead to negative impact not only for the human health but also for the environment. There are several strategies to improve the plastic waste management, one of them is to recycle the plastic waste. A plastic shredder is a machine used for cutting plastics into smaller parts called granules or pellets. The focus of this paper is to design a shredding machine used for recycling plastic waste. The outcome of this shredding machine can be used for subsequent plastic processing machine such as extrusion and injection machine. The proposed design is prepared using 3D computer aided design (CAD) software and use several sources on the market to make improvements. This paper covers the design, material used and strength analysis of the machine.
