Description of the case

 In 2 and 3 shafts shredder,  the blade is used to shear the waste like aluminium cans. The edge quality is very important and  you need good toughness in order to not crack when shearing gravel,  scrap metals,  nails, bolts and  so on.

 The blade thickness  is decided by the crushed material size. Usually, they use 30, 50, 60mm plate thickness

Hardox 550 blade with good toughness, not easy to crack compared with heat treated  tool steel.
