Martin Yale has developed it to cater specifically to the needs of those who mass produce waste on a regular basis.

To start shredding, operators simply dump all material to be shredded in the conveniently placed hopper. From there the waste is picked up by the studded conveyor belt and fed to the pre-shredder that converts it to strips that are small enough to be fed to the high security shredding unit. Once the strips are produced, they fall on to another conveyor that passes them through a compartment where all ferrous materials like file rings are separated via its innovative magnetic separation system. It consists of a magnetic drum that attracts all metal and sends it to a separate container that can be emptied at any time. After this stage, the paper shreds that remain pass through the high security shredder that is designed to convert them to absolutely indistinguishable cross cut particles measuring a mere ¼” x 9/16”-2”, which qualifies this shredder for P-3 security rating. Being g truly versatile industrial shredder, it can effortlessly shred through waste materials like cardboard, floppy disks, optical disks, and plastic cards can be. The heavy duty motor installed in it is capable of a throughput capacity of up to 850 kg/hour. This Intimus cross cut shredder also features an intuitive user interface that is ideal for busy office users.
