Untha: problem-free shredding of recyclable materials

Untha has expanded its product range with a new generation of its reliable, versatile and high-performance single-shaft QR shredders. ‘With this QR series, operators can be sure of avoiding unscheduled downtime,’ Untha says. ‘These machines do what they were built for: problem-free shredding of recyclable materials.’

In addition to the robust, universal cutting unit, ‘indestructible’ body and completely maintenance-free pusher technology, the technical highlights of this product include a resilient drive system that comes with a safety coupling.

In contrast to standard units, the QR series does not require a shaft stub as the gears are integrated in the rotor, resulting in significant repair reduction. The QR series ranges from a rated capacity of 22 to 180 kW and cutting unit widths of 800, 1000, 1200, 1400, 1700 and 2100 mm.

‘Yet another outstanding technological feature is the multi-functional flap that allows quick and easy access to the cutting chamber for the efficient emptying of the hopper and removal of foreign objects,’ Untha points out. ‘Furthermore, the pusher may be cleaned in an ergonomic and safe position.’

The simple operation of the QR units is based on a high-resolution touch-screen display, intelligent pusher controls, long maintenance intervals, and quick and safe access to all machine components.

The QR series was developed and realised over a two-year period in co-operation with users from industry and commerce. ‘This co-operation has resulted in a new series of single-shaft shredders that leave nothing to be desired,’ the manufacturer notes.

Stefan Pischon, head of R&D at Untha, comments: ‘Close co-operation with our customers throughout the entire innovation process was an essential factor in the success of this project. All technical features were inspired by the wishes and requirements of users with plenty of practical experience, and therefore offer tangible added value.’
