The first shredder to be designed and manufactured in Untha’s new innovation centre in Kuchl, Austria, the XR breaks the conventional shredding mould. It has been designed to increase operators’ profitability, and promises to reduce energy consumption by up to 50%. This could save in excess of £500,000 in electricity costs alone, in less than five years. The shredding experts also claim that the XR is the most flexible shredder on the market. Achieving throughputs of up to 70 tonnes per hour, it has two distinct cutting concepts that can be configured and reconfigured as clients’ requirements evolve. It is able to achieve a precision shred, with homogenous particles as small as 50mm, in a single pass.
