Untha has won recent global success with its electrically driven mobile shredder, the XR mobil-e.
Two machines have been sold to customers in Italy, while Ragn-Sells is using it to shred waste wood in Norway. There has been another sale in Spain, two in the UK for waste wood and C&I waste, and Breitsamer is utilising the shredder in Germany.
With the same design features as the static XR, the mobile solution provides customers with similar benefits: high throughputs, low operating costs, energy efficiency, low noise, foreign object protection and ease of maintenance.
But it is the first machine of its kind to shred with a low-power electric drive and, thanks to its on-board auxiliary power pack, it can be moved easily around a facility and plugged back in.
Untha’s head of waste business unit Peter Streinik said: “I think 2017 will be a pivotal year for waste shredding. The market is opening up with greater investment and increased appreciation for the role that alternative fuel can play within the global energy agenda.
“But operators are still pressed to manufacture more for less without compromising quality or the environment. The XR mobil-e and its static equivalent will prove key to this.”
