UNTHA Invests In New Shredder Test Centre

Following a three-month refurbishment programme, and want it describes as”considerable investment in the facility”, UNTHA UK has revealed its new-look shredder test centre, allowing its customers to see exactly what the products can do.

The trial department has long been a popular feature at UNTHA’s headquarters, with prospective clients coming to the site to put the machines through their paces with their own materials. The test centre now hosts several machines from UNTHA’s shredder range, including an RS100 four shaft shredder for bulky and/or large volumes of metals, WEEE and confidential waste; a smaller RS40 particularly popular for product destruction and light WEEE; and the new QR for plastics, production waste, pallets and light volume wood biomass.

Ceiling and on-machine cameras have also been installed so that visitors can see the shredding process, in detail, from the safety of UNTHA UK’s first floor boardroom, via a window running the full length of the room.

“It’s one thing talking about the capabilities of our shredders,” comments UNTHA UK’s managing director Marcus Brew. “But we all know seeing is believing.”

The refurbishment programme has also seen the test centre experience an extensive ‘spring clean’. The floor has been painted with goods-in and -out bays now clearly marked. Energy-efficient LED lights illuminate the length of the 1,000sqm facility, and a new curtain wall has also been installed to section off the engineers’ workshop and parts storage area.
