30 years on and UNTHA’s 4 shaft shredders are still best on the market

In the early 1980s, crude two shaft shredding was the norm, until UNTHA Shredding technology developed and patented the world’s first four shaft shredding system with perforated screen. This machine revolutionised the way the waste and recycling industry could process materials, and was the main catalyst in the development of the UNTHA brand worldwide.  It has led to phenomenal international growth, and is a heritage that we are incredibly proud of.

Since that time, many shredder manufacturers have tried to emulate this innovative shredding concept, but the RS remains unsurpassed. This is undoubtedly because, as engineering pioneers, we have never rested on our laurels. We have continued to talk to our customers, and have found new ways to innovate. As a result, over 30 years later, we still have the best shredder on the market for handling confidential waste, WEEE, metals, organics, paper, wood and more. It maintains its status as the most flexible, robust and long-lasting shredder available, and many machines that were installed in the 80s, are still in service today.

The popularity of the RS series is also underpinned by the fact that we have a number of different models, each configurable to suit a client’s specific requirements. For customers looking to achieve high availability and consistent throughput for low volume shredding, for example, the compact RS30 or RS40 provide robust yet cost-effective solutions.

At the other end of the scale, our heavy duty RS150 – the largest four shaft shredder in UNTHA’s fleet – can excel in even the toughest shredding environments. What’s more, it guarantees impressive uptime, ease of operation and maintenance, low noise and dust generation, a rugged cutting system and energy saving drive concept.

Talking about this renowned machine, UNTHA UK’s managing director Chris Oldfield said: “With the RS series, the options are virtually endless. We work closely with all our clients to determine which of the four shaft shredders best suit to their needs and budget. And from the outset we illustrate how our shredding technology can help them turn today’s waste into tomorrow’s profits.

“Only this month, at the prestigious RWM exhibition, we were reminded of how popular the RS shredder is, and how many organisations it can help. The UK recycling industry is rapidly becoming ever-more sophisticated, and with businesses striving to develop smarter and more profitable ways to handle their ‘waste’, we are extremely well-placed to support them.”
