FINGER-SCREEN™ 2.0 the Key to System Integration

 by Dick Reeves,

What is the perfect sorting system? Do you offer the best solution for every material stream? Can you effectively manufacture and support every piece of equipment your customers demand? While there may be no perfect single solution, together we can offer the best possible option for the widest variety of applications as well as offer key critical support after installation.

FINGER-SCREEN™ 2.0, The HEART of your Integrated System


At General Kinematics we are no stranger to dealing with challenging requirements. For over half a century GK has made equipment for the most unique processes adding to our experience and depth of knowledge with every process challenge and building roadblock. From this experience came the FINGER-SCREEN™ 2.0 Primary Screen. Engineered, designed, prototyped, built, and tested from 2016 through 2018, this expertly designed screen can be manufactured to fit into even the most unique recycling systems. Incorporating this primary screen in front of your sorting system provides improved separation, scalping off destructive contaminants before they can cause damage downstream. Leveraging our decades of knowledge gained from our original FINGER-SCREEN™ Primary Screen, the 2.0 now provides customers with separation for challenging waste streams including C&D, MSW, and Single Stream. Extremely integrator-friendly, this unit provides insurance against downtime, leading to a more fully automated system. GK’s Two-Mass technology has been proven in the field to routinely achieve a 95% uptime rate at many 24/7 facilities including this recent installation.

You can rely on GK to provide you with the most fully realized piece of your designed system.
