MacDonald Steel Mini paper shredders are employed to accept trim waste on a continuous basis from an air conveyor or belt conveyor or on an intermittent basis as a floor sweep for general clean-up, and reduce the scrap in size for more convenient handling and to improve the baling characteristics of the scrap.
The scrap material is reduced into small pieces in the shredding section consisting of a series of fixed teeth on a rotating arbor which pass through a fixed grating. A V-belt drive is used to run the shredder.
The shredder is statically and dynamically balanced. The arbor shaft is supported by oversized, self-aligning mount bearings. The drive is fully-guarded. A bolted cover provides access to the arbor.
MacDonald Steel Mini paper shredders are employed to reduce scrap in size for more convenient handling and to improve the scrap’s baling characteristics. The Shredders are constructed of heavy structural members and are all-welded construction.
