  • Patent number: 4119277
    Abstract: An improved apparatus for cutting scrap tires is disclosed wherein compressed scrap tires are cut. A scrap tire is compressed, then fed into a plurality of rotary disc cutters axially spaced along a shaft and rotated against a stationary anvil. In the preferred embodiment, cutting tools are vertically mounted on the rotary disc cutters, whose outer circumference is recessed in a concave arc starting at the top of the cutting tool and ending at that portion of the cutting tool closest to the center. The cutting tools are off-set along successive rotary disc cutters rather than placed in a line parallel to the shaft. Anvil tools having at least one cutting edge are mounted on the stationary anvil for ease in maintaining cutting edges opposite the rotating cutting tools. Cleaner bars facilitate the removal of cut scrap tires from the rotary disc cutters and their subsequent collection.
