PPMA Show to host first-look at new plastic and packaging shredder

UNTHA UK is set to unveil its new packaging, pallet and plastics shredder, at the PPMA Show this September.
The three day event at the NEC will provide visitors with a UK first-look at the manufacturer’s latest engineering innovation – the QR series.

The high throughput shredder will take centre stage on UNTHA’s stand (A22), so delegates can get up close to what has been hailed a maximum performance piece of technology, with simplicity at its heart.

Capable of handling everything from wooden pallets to production waste – as well as plastic lump, drums, film and mixed rigids – the QR has been developed in conjunction with recyclers worldwide.

“This latest innovation is about achieving impressive results with minimal effort,” comments UNTHA UK’s managing director Marcus Brew. “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.”

With a resilient drive for machine longevity, low wear parts and integrated gears for added maintenance simplicity, UNTHA is pitching the QR as a shredder with incredibly low whole life running costs.

“A simple planned preventative maintenance plan is all that is required to preserve optimum operational conditions,” continues Marcus. “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.”

The QR won’t be the only technology that UNTHA UK’s shredding experts will be talking about at the PPMA Show. Another major theme is currently the compliant processing of hard drives and other confidential media, for as little as fifty pence per unit.

“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,” explains Marcus. “This is another big example of shredding with ROI in mind.”

The PPMA Show is the UK’s number one event for process and packaging machinery suppliers. Taking place on 26-28 September, at the NEC Birmingham, it will run in Hall 5 adjacent to the UK’s leading plastics exhibition, Interplas.
