For decades, the intimus 16 Series heavy duty shredders have proven to be the cornerstone for the privacy-friendly disposal of disused media. The line now comes standard with SmartShred Touchscreen Controls, with session logging, maintenance reminders, and increased cutting efficiency. With SmartShred electronic automation, the 16.86 will perform longer and have far fewer service calls than competitive products.
The model range offers variations that can handle up to 550 sheets at a time or up to 1,500 lbs per hour. On the larger cut sizes metal ringed binders can be destroyed complete without removing pages or dividers. The spacious feed table with integrated infeed conveyor belt provides controlled, effortless, safe and fast loading. A standard safety feature to intimus but uncommon in competitive units, is the chest bar that shuts down the conveyor and cutting head when the chest of the user leans too close the cutting head. This is a great safety feature for users not accustomed to the power of an industrial shredder. In the 16.50 series, the shredded material is collected in large-scale, mobile containers under the cutting mechanism. The 16.86 combines the shredder with a press baler for immediate fully automatic compaction of the cut material into compact bales. Reduction effect compared to the loose collection of the cuttings is about 70%.
