Recycling Process


Feeding of Raw Materials

The capacity is up to 100kg/h and can be changed in three stages (40kg, 70kg, and 100kg) to suit changing staffing levels and throughput.



Styrofoam is crushed into uniformly small pieces to facilitate volume reduction.


Volume Reduction

The finely crushed styrofoam is melted with an electric heater to remove air and reduce the volume to about 1/50 (depends on the raw material's foaming ratio).


Molding & Cutting

The reduced volume styrofoam is formed into ingots and automatically cut to a specified length before being discharged.

Why Yamamoto?
We're all about making work
safe and comfortable.

While our machines provide unrivalled performance
and create the highest quality ingots,
our real focus is on workplace safety, comfort, and ease of use.

Easy & Simple

Our machines are designed to be easy for anyone to use. For regular operation, simply touch a button and watch as ingots are automatically formed and cut to the specified size.

Work-Related Stress

The warm-up time is only 15 minutes. There is no need to keep the operator waiting before starting operation or resuming after a break. If the optional Automatic Ingot Aligner is installed, the operator does not need to pick up each ingot because it automatically arranges the cut ingots. This frees the operator to focus on feeding raw materials into the machine, and thus it can process a higher volume faster.

Consideration for
the Working Environment

The small heat source makes it difficult for odours to diffuse, and an activated carbon deodoriser is fitted as standard. Also, the crushing hopper is equipped with sound-absorbing material, which significantly reduces noise. This promotes a comfortable working environment.

Designed for

Dangerous parts, such as chains and blades, are covered to prevent access. A safety switch prevents the machine from being started when the cover is open.


The Hi-Melter RE-E1000 is a compact machine with a volume reduction capacity of 100 kg per hour designed to promote a safe and comfortable working environment.

Feeding Hopper

The hopper has a feeding width of 1,000 mm, is made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel and is equipped with sound-absorbing material which significantly reduces noise pollution.



Crushing Section

The crushing blade is our proprietary design and crushes all kinds of styrofoam such as fish boxes, cushioning materials and trays.



Electric Heater

Warm-up operation time is 15 minutes.
Since the volume is reduced in a short time at a low temperature of 200℃, ingots are formed that are of higher quality and with less deterioration of physical properties.



Molding Section

Expanded polystyrene melted from the heater is formed into the specified shape by forming rolls and stamps, air cooling with a blower, and water cooling with a molding sink. A cooling water circulation system is adopted to eliminate the need to worry about drainage.



Cutting Section

The wheel sensor monitors the discharge of ingots, and the cutting blade automatically cuts them to the specified length (400, 600, 800, or 1,000 mm).




It deodorizes the odour generated at the time of volume reduction by activated carbon adsorption method and promotes a comfortable working environment.



Control Panel

Precise and meticulous temperature control is possible. In the event of a problem, the operator will be notified by an alarm sound, alert light, and error message displayed on the monitor.



Manual Operation Switch

A maintenance switch is located inside the panel. By switching to manual operation, the individual motors can be operated separately, e.g. during maintenance.


Options & Layout Examples

Conveyor Belt Feeding Type [RE-E1000B]

Conveyor Belt system enables smooth and safe operation.

Ground Conveyor Input Type [RE-E1000 + RE-BC1001L5G]

We have designed our conveyor with a dustpan-style opening to make it easy to feed styrene foam directly from the floor.

Roller Conveyor Input Type [RE-1000R]

Automatic Ingot Aligner [RE-1000B + RE-HC1000]

Adding this option frees the operator to focus on feeding raw materials into the machine, and thus it can process a higher volume faster. The operator does not need to pick up and arrange each ingot manually. The Automatic Ingot Aligner takes care of this task for up to 10 ingots.
