UNTHA UK said it will showcase its new packaging, pallet and plastics shredder, at the PPMA Show this September.
The QR series is claimed to be a high throughput shredder, which is capable of handling everything ranging from wooden pallets to production waste, plastic lump, drums, films and mixed rigids.
It has been developed in conjunction with recyclers worldwide.
UNTHA claims that the machine has been designed keeping simplicity, machine longevity in mind and is equipped with low wear parts and integrated gears for simpler maintenance.
UNTHA UK managing director Marcus Brew said: “This latest innovation is about achieving impressive results with minimal effort. Because, isn’t that what any customer demands from new technology?
“It’s a flexible piece of equipment that can be easily reconfigured to tackle different waste streams, and with our low maintenance pusher technology, it has been purposefully engineered to deliver maximum yield and uptime.”
Marcus said: “A simple planned preventative maintenance plan is all that is required to preserve optimum operational conditions. That means less time spent on the upkeep of the shredder, and more time actually shredding!
“We’ve tried to think about everything, from a simple touch screen control panel with remote diagnostics, to foreign object protection for safe and easy removal of foreign material. And we invite organisations to trial this machine, using their own materials, when it heads back to our test centre after this event.”
Apart from the QR Series, UNTHA also plans to talk about its hard drive and other confidential media processing unit.
Marcus said: “Our hard drive shredder is fast becoming one of our biggest-selling machines, because it satisfies clients’ legislative requirements when it comes to data destruction and DIN levels, at the same time as producing a homogenous fraction that guarantees maximum recyclate quality and revenue yield. This is another big example of shredding with ROI in mind.”
